The natural blending of shape, texture and warm colors make autumn one of my favorite seasons. Autumn is a favorite time of year for all photographers. My photographer friends will agree, the fall colors don’t last nearly long enough.
I hope you find this particular artistic, abstract interpretation of autumn appealing. It is the combination of accident and experimentation. The accident was taking the shot after accidentally changing a setting that ended up taking a 0.8 second exposure. The long exposure created the blurring and multiple vision. Then I took the image and experimented with various digital enhancements to sharpness, saturation, etc. After fiddling with a lot of different options, I settled on this version of the image.
In my experimentation, I also came up with a monochrome version. I’m not sure if I like it well enough to share it. I’m still considering it.

A recent walk though some woods provided a lot of fall color. On this trip, I focused on the small picture – close-up images of colorful leaves.
This caught my eye because of the combination of red and green against the dark background.
It seemed the smaller leaves were resisting the change. A youthful rebellion.

It’s autumn in Wisconsin and the leaves have turned brilliant colors. In this area, one of the most transformations is the wild sumac plant – turning from green to orange and then a deep red.
This is the tip of a wild sumac branch being illuminated by the morning sun. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
