Getting Ready for Fall

This is from a Smoke Tree that I have trimmed to a bush.  The light was very low when I took this, nearly *8 PM.  I made my 18 - 270mm lens into a macro shooting at 270mm  1/60 shutter speed, f-6.3 and the ISO was 3200.  I accepted the fact that I would have some graininess, I actually wanted it.  What I really liked was how the sun, just a spot of light, caught the leaves.  By the way, I don't use a flash.  Only flash I have is the pop up on the camera and with this lens the flash is cut off.

This was the sun bouncing off the bottom of the clouds overhead.
