Autumn Fireworks

As I mentioned a few posts back, we don’t have many groves of deciduous trees here. When I was out with my niece we came upon this small goldmine in a clearing before the river. A cold front was moving in, wrecking havoc for picture taking. Overcast one minute, bright sunshine the next, windy, calm, etc. I have photos seconds apart in the same area that look dramatically different. That back and forth weather has continued so I’m hoping by the end of the week to get back here for another outing. I was a bit gratuitous in shutter snaps on this one. Although I want to get back for better conditions, I’ve learned that these colors go fast, the everyday wind picking them clean.  I’ll likely post a few more here, but I’ll have extras on my Flickr.

  1. Autumns tones really add interest and variety to image.

    But I think I’ve missed the boat, all the trees here are pretty much bare now. But we’ve a strange year here weather wise – a very wet and mild summer, followed by an Indian Summer in September/October, and now the warmest November for 300 years (18°C last weekend). The plants/trees and squirrels don’t know whether they’re coming or going.

  2. I feel so lame this season, I haven’t gone out ONCE to capture the fall colours…I think I hear a photowalk calling me today! It’s amazing how fast light conditions change isn’t it, keeps us on our toes! Thanx for the inspiration Brandon!

  3. The shallow DOF is great. It really makes the colours pop in contrast with the strong dark tones in the tree trunk. We don’t really get the autumn colours at all. Mostly just yellow/brown around here. Of course, those days are passed. The main colour around here now is white.
