Great blues skies and fall’s coloured leaves and wood – not a bad formula.


Even in the Late Fall

Even in the late fall some colours don’t fade away.  Similarly you can get beautiful backgrounds from the faded colours.


The Fall

When it comes to photography the fall provides simply magnificent colour palates. A gift before the deep freeze.


Colour

Post processing of photographs gives many options for obtaining the colours you want. In my case I try to stay true to my memory of the scene.


Another View

To handle scenes like this with big highlights and deep shadows, I use Photoshop HDR. Two shots over exposed, two under exposed and in the middle. White balance and a touch up of the colour is sometimes needed.  


A Favourite Place

There are places that are special. This is one. I have not been back there for a long while because of crowds and COVID. Now it’s been hit by a bad storm that meant ruined paths and lost trees. Plans are a foot to make it more accessible and more crowded. I am glad to have captured it when I could.

The portion of a decade’s old discontinued currency struck me as good example of abstract art.


Whiskers

If my whiskers acted like this redstart’s whiskers, I would do something about it.


Not Mean Spirited

Unless we practice anthropomorphism, I doubt this bird is as angry as it looks.


Unintentional

I try hard not to frighten my subjects as I want to a get a good photograph, and I don’t want to stress animals already under threat.


Dragonfly

Its cuteness hides one of the the most effective predators in the insect kingdom.


Over The Top

This metallic bee means no harm. The echinacea needs the bee as much as the bee needs the echinacea. We are all the better for it.


Not Wilting

There is a reason I use aperture priority. Except for removing a spider web this was out of camera.

A piece of back-lit silk. Bold strokes of what could have been a lively piece of modern art.


Interruption

Flowers like these seem to rise from nowhere in a field, like an interruption in a conversation.


Underwater – Not

A little less contrast and focus gives special look.

Always nice to catch the little guys on the move.


Envisaging A Different Outer Space

The space analogy seemed to fit my perspective on this plant.

I don’t care what it’s called, I think Rose Martini works just fine.
