It has been rainy and cloudy the past day or so. I like rainy days…it’s cozy and snug in the house. However, there was a break in the rain yesterday, and the light outside was rather pretty, so I thought I would hike around a bit with my camera. While the lighting conditions weren’t quite ideal, it was still kind of beautiful in its own way. I always enjoy macro photography…a good macro lens is one of my “someday” purchases. However, I can do some decent macro with the lenses I have now, so I am happy for the time being.
It’s not the most breathtaking fall color this year, but it’s still beautiful. I always enjoy the mustard yellow leaves and the cherry red leaves. One of my favorite things about photography in the fall is trying to capture a single brilliant color with a very subdued background. One stark leaf over a grayish background. The eye really is attracted to that one pop of color and makes the composition that much more interesting. Another thing I like, oddly enough, is the withering leaves and plants. Somehow, a brown leaf, brittle and curled up, can be a thing of beauty.
As always my pets make an appearance here and there too. 🙂
So here is some of what I photographed yesterday. I hope you enjoy the pictures and are enjoying fall. Thanks for looking.
