I am probably not alone in the belief that a picture of a tree in full autumn blaze can never be as beautiful as when you see it on your walk through the park.
I am hoping to get a four-season look at various trees, but am trying to avoid the traditional postcard-pretty picture of a tree. It's tempting, though. Minnesota is sooooooo beautiful this time of year.
This photo certainly says to me that it is fall, but still has the "Circles of Confusion" elements that I have looked for in me trees during other seasons. I'll shoot more like this, I expect, as leaves thin out a bit more.
What we need is a good rain, but I can wait a week or two for that.
