I was drinking in the surroundings: air so crisp you could snap it with your fingers and greens in every lush shade imaginable offset by autumnal flashes of red and yellow.” – Wendy Delsol

 

FOCUS:  Nature

Oh, autumn is truly in the air today… the temperatures are crisp, the sky is overcast, and a light rain has been falling all day.  It is the perfect day to pull out those sweaters and boots that have been locked away for months, grab an umbrella and go out for a brisk walk.  Afterwards, snuggle up under a blanket with a warm cup of tea, and relish in the changing of the seasons.

I didn’t have to go very far to capture the beauty of the day.  Truth be told, each of these images was taken right in my own yard.  The top image was captured in our backyard fountain that sits under our maple tree.  From a technique standpoint, I focused on the surface of the water to capture the reflection of the tree, while blurring out the colorful leaves that had fallen into the water.  I think the resulting painterly effect is a wonderful illustration of the weather outside today.
