Fall (Oct 1) #42

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.

What I like about this one is the contrast of the blue sky and the gold/mustard/green/orange leaves.

I like the little spec of white branch near the bottom center, and that the leaves that are the most "fall looking" are the ones completely out of focus...

About Me

My photo
Minneapolis, MN, United States
Photographer/Artist based in Mpls, MN. I have a studio in the NE Arts District--Studio #274 at the Northrup King Bldg, 1500 Jackson St NE. I photograph elements of nature to explore color, shape, and composition. My goal is to capture images of the nature around me in a way that explodes (or seaps) with beauty. If that nature is in a vacant city lot, all the better. (All images Copyrighted. Use permitted with permission).
