Autumn Leaves

ND – Dull Grey, Chilly, Blue

It is that time of year…
…when the clocks offer shorter winter days, and the transition from light to dark at five o’clock is softened by the rustic and vivid colours of leaves on trees that we describe as autumnal.

As our climate is finally starting to cool from summer, we were still blessed with warm and sunny days into October, and it’s been a pleasure to take a camera for a walk through the local parks.

Here is a leafy image that I recently took on one such walk through Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park.

Enjoy 🙂

Red Leaves in Cannon Hill Park

Nikon D700 'FX', Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G AF-S VR @ 200mm, Exposure 1/160 @ F5.6, ISO 500, Walking towards this tree I saw the rich red colours and the sun shining through. The only real problem here was that it was breezy, the leaves kept moving, and I couldn't eliminate shadows where I didn't want them

Have floral fun,

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
