Autumn Blaze

A bit of intentional camera movement, a bit of post production and a smidge of creative interpretation leads to flaming fall color.  A little something along an October Road.

October Road

I had to travel some back roads in Wisconsin the other day and, of course, I had my camera bag with me.  The further south one goes, the more fall color you’ll see.  On this particular day, there was little if any breeze and the lakes and ponds were marvelously still.  So, take a little trip down an October road with me.  Oh yeah, if you’ve seen my work before, you know things might get interesting.

Fast Track to Winter

Down the Rails

Nice to see autumn color still putting on a show after returning from North Dakota where I witnessed the aftermath of their recent snow storm.

At the end of the road is the boat launch, will have to return on a better day with a boat and fishing rod.

Since the sun wouldn’t work with me, I chose to push the colors a bit to achieve the desired effect.  I think if the light had been a bit brighter, the image would have a more natural tone.

Our Last Stop (at least for now) on my fall tour.  But you never know, there may be other chances to find the best of the fall colors ahead.

It Was A Strange Afternoon

Dreams under an autumn sky, shaded sunlight filtering through the nearly bare trees, I meditated on the shimmering surface and got lost in the magic of the moment.
