Autumn Foliage

The Autumn Heart

Leaf, Red, Autumn, Heart, Heart Shaped
An early morning sunrise, shining behind this leaf on one of our lilac bushes, brought out its brilliant fall color and intricate detail.

This is one of those times where something just caught my eye.  I was walking by a window, just about sunrise, when I noticed this bright leaf on a bush. I quickly grabbed my camera, hoping to catch the beauty before the shaft of light piercing the bush moved off this leaf.  I was there in time.

I love big landscape vistas.  I also love the smaller vistas.  As I always say – whatever catches my eye.

Limited Shelf Life

Fall Leaves, Shelf Mushroom, Maple Leaf, Autumn, Autumn leaves, Autumn color
On one of my recent hikes through the autumn woods, I snapped a brightly colored maple leaf that found a resting place on a shelf mushroom.

For those not familiar, shelf mushrooms (or bracket fungi) grow on the side of trees (living and dead). When you find them, they’re usually attached to rough barked trees.

There are dozens of shelf mushroom varieties – different sizes, shapes and colors. They are known by a variety of descriptive names – beefsteak fungus, sulphur shelf, birch bracket, dryad’s saddle, artist’s conk, and turkey tail…and others.

The classification, Polypores, is often used for the type of the hard or leathery fungi (like the one pictured here) that lacks a stem, growing straight out of wood.  The polypore’s woody fruiting bodies are called conks.

Blush of Fall

Autumn Leaves, Fall Colors, Fall Leaves, Maple Leaves, Orange, Fall
The last leaves of autumn provide a colorful contrast to their bleak, forest background.

For me, the colorful contrast and moody nature make this a worthwhile image.  I think the leaves, with their smattering of red on orange, are beautiful. Take those quintessential autumn leaves  and set them before a shadowy, bluish background and I think the eye-appeal soars.  It’s a contrast of light and dark – bright and moody.

Curvaceous

Road, Curvy, Door County, Fall, Fall Foliage, Curves, Winding,
A number of people have told me this stretch of highway, just before you reach Gills Rock at the northern tip of the Door County, WI peninsula, is the most photographed road in the world.  I don’t know who’s keeping track, but a number of people stopped and got out of their cars to snap a quick photo while I was there. In fact, I left my home before sunrise just to get there and this shot in the early morning light.

My intent was to make it an “Autumn Colors” tour and get some great fall foliage.  I didn’t get much else worth noting.  Once the sun was up, it was clear and bright – creating too much contrast and washing out the colors.

I spent a good deal of time in processing this image. A lot of that time was spent removing a power line that stretched across the upper part of the image. Thanks to the magic of software…with a bit of skill and a bunch of patience…an unsightly distraction was eliminated. I thought about removing the mailbox and For Sale sign on the right, but decided it wasn’t too distracting and probably added to the rural feel.

The fallen leaves are almost as beautiful on the ground as they were on the trees. I’m glad I didn’t have to rake this clearing in the woods.

Fall In the Creek

A serene scene of natural beauty. Colorful autumn leaves blanketed the ground and floated by on a gently flowing Wisconsin woodland stream.

This is an image from last fall in the woods across the field from our home. A very peaceful, highly enjoyable morning in the woods.

Ending On A High Note

When this photo was made, most of the leaves in the forest had fallen. These red leaves were some of the last hold outs. Even though their days were numbered, they were making the most of their time…going out in dramatic fashion…in a blaze of red.
