Picture This #270 ~ Colors Of Fall

What a beautiful close up photo chosen for this week's banner. Congratulations Debby.

Autumn is speeding up here in New England. We are in the southern area of the region close to the sea. Our foliage season doesn't peak until the middle of October.
These are some of my photos taken from past autumns.

  1. Hi, Robert, three lovely autumn pictures for the theme. My maples are just starting to turn that lovely orange red color you have captured. I like very much how the tree overhangs the photograph in the middle. And the morning mist on the river seems so very peaceful and almost melancholy, a beautiful scene.

    1. Thank you, Benni. I liked the solitude that the second and third photos make. They were taken in quiet settings. The park is only opened now for picnicing and walking the trails. I found it fortunate to pass the river at this time in the morning.

  4. Hi Robert!! A great selection of shots for Heidi's theme. The 'turning leaves' in the first shot are a perfect example of Fall colour. I really like the quality of light in the second shot, particularly how it's shining through the leaves in the upper-right part of the photo. Beautiful 'autumn mist' in the third shot.

    1. Thank you, Mitch. I had to position myself so the image wouldn't be overexposed. I had the polarizer filter on but it still was overexposed. I had to modify it in post processing.
      I'm pleased that you liked the first and third shots.

  5. Autumn seems to have its birthplace in New England, for me Stepen King land. I paarticularly like the last photo with the rising mist, it really captures the atmosphere.

    1. Thank you, Belita for your comments. That first shot was taken from one of my trees. The color of the leaves varies from year to year. The foliage in that photo was great. I do enjoy going to quiet places to photograph as you can see in the second and third photos.
