Just the kind of day I love...

We spent a gloriously quiet Sunday together at home. The air had just a hint of fall chill and the leaves are beginning to turn. Just about perfect in my book! Lia spent some time climbing the (very) small tree in our backyard.

Ok, how DO you get such crisp focused pictures??? What are you using (camera & lens). I would love to be able to take good photos like you do.
