My One and Only

Although I don’t care for what comes after Fall, I always look forward to getting out with my camera to capture the colours.  Mike and I love to just jump in the car, pick a direction, and drive until we find the perfect, brilliant colours.  Unfortunately, this year has been a disappointment.  It has been a beautiful mild Fall, but the trees have been dull compared to other years.  Not only that, but it seemed like a great deal of the leaves had fallen before they even started to change, and every time I had a chance to go out it was rainy, foggy, or both.

I did, however, get this single shot one day before the rains began, and I really quite like it. At least I wasn’t skunked :).

    Ooooh! That’s a good one Cindy! Much better than anything we can see around here.

    A fair range of colours in this photo… love the subtle autumn colours of the trees in the background…

    • Yes, subtle is nice, but some years it is so brilliant that it takes your breath away. Too bad I didn’t get to experiment more that particular day. We were on our way somewhere, so I thought I would stop again on the way home, but by that time it was pouring rain.

    Totally agree on the weather. This is a great shot with wonderful contrast. The barn fits perfect in the scene!

    That’s a great shot. I noticed a bunch of leaves on the ground on my morning walk here. We’ve had quite a bit of wind and so many of the leaves are gone before they changed. Going to be a bit of a disappointment this year I think.

  6. I loved the three layers of color: the flowers in the forefront, the red and grey house and the trees in the background.

    Not skunked at all, terrific scene Cindy!

    Beautiful pic! Happy, happy Thanksgiving!

    You’ve caught some terrific woods there, back behind the barn. I hope the rains don’t take all of the rest of your leaves down. We just drove up north this afternoon/evening, and I can’t wait to see what’s left of ours when the light returns tomorrow morning.

    Great shot Cindy! All it takes is one photo to capture the season, you did a darn good job of that here. And remember, there’s always next fall!

    • I love your positive attitude :). It can’t be perfect conditions every year can it? I am happy that I got this shot though. Thanks Jeff!

        You know it Cindy. For me I know that if I don’t get the photo I want this year, there’s always next. I had a shot list a mile long for this fall, but with the best light going so quickly at each end of the day, a family at home, and only so many days of peak color, it just didn’t happen. I barely scratched the surface of that list. Next year, or maybe the year after, I’ll eventually get them. Most of what I like to photograph isn’t going anywhere. And I’m very patient.
