Sunday Trees in Autumn

Ignoring fall colours at this time of the year is not accpetable to me. I am presenting one of the fall refection images for Becca’s Sunday Trees this week.

Remember not every moment, every picture, every act in life is perfect. Accepting the way they are and then concentrating on the positive is the key to a happy life ~Rupali

The logs, the wagon trailer and the other times on the shoreline of the lake are part of this setting. But it doesn’t matter as we enjoy the reflection.

A photo study: colour

The grey surroundings make all dull. It is hard to notice a little colour, colours which otherwise invite us. The weather forecast makes sure to tell us about rain and rain. At the end one gets tired of being inside.

So I took a walk and little improvement in the weather let me saw autumn colours. Here they are “first hand”.

The colours are not bright as they would be in normal bright setting but my eyes and my mind set on them. My eyes catch golden yellow colour on any background in autumn. Am I biased?

Experimenting with blurs!

I can’t explain how much have I learned in last two days.  Let me be honest and tell you one thing, for me getting a blur image was only related to a water fall or river. Just to get that soft touch on water. I never though of getting soft background or dreamy image in general setting. I was using shutter speed to capture the cases with fast movements, especially for birds.

Here are my entries for Raj’s lesson on “blurs” in photography.

This image was taken this autumn. The leave was hanging very high up on the tree. The details for image: 1/500 sek. f/5,6 300 mm, ISO 320

learnphoto6_1  The second image is very interesting. The credit for blurring effect goes to the snow fall. The picture was taken from inside a bus. The details are 1/1000 sek. f/4,5 62 mm, ISO 400

On sunday, we got few hours (not exactly) of sunshine. It was very cold and there was strong wind but still I went out and tried some autumn shots by changing shutter speed.

The details for next image: 3.1/500 sek. f/11 92 mm, ISO 320

and the last one with aperture setting. The details are 1/4000 sek. f/6,3 85 mm. ISO 6400

After taking photos yesterday, I realize it really matter if you are looking at the light or against it. The amount of light already available makes a difference. Raj has opened a whole new world of “dreamy images to me”. There is so much to explore and enjoy.

I hope you enjoy the images!
