Autumn Moods

Post by LindaShorey » Sat Oct 28, 2017 1:10 pm

1. Dew-covered spider silk draping bulrush plants, mist rising from a little pond.

2. Aspen (I think) on a sunny morning.

3. Teasel with full moon setting behind. Shot at dawn, facing west. Clouds had pink color, but I've enhanced the image a bit :) The moon disappeared totally immediately after this shot. I chose the tall aspect to make the sky a major part of the composition and to hopefully give the feeling of the plants reaching skyward.

Thanks for viewing!

All three of those are just lovely. Simply lovely. Deceptively simple. Repeating elements. Few colors. Rich textures. Each provides a subtle center. The one darker bullrush. The bird. The disappearing moon. Very, very well done! :thumbup: :thanks:

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thank you so much, Chuck. I'm very happy you enjoyed. I was out again this morning in golden light. We've had a lot of perfect autumn weather that I'm so grateful for: 30's at night, low to mid 60's by mid-afternoon, abundant sunshine.

Thank you, Duck! I greatly enjoy seeking weather and/or the light conditions that set the mood. No worries on the "ho hum." I long ago learned that we all have different interests :)

Wonderful images Linda. Can't believe the weather we are having here on the Olympic Peninsula, today lower 60's and lots of sun.

Thank you, Ernst! I'm so appreciative of your interest. I see a bit of snow in the forecast around the 7th and 8th on my side of the mountains, so a perfect autumn is coming to a close, it seems. Very glad to hear you've enjoyed gorgeous weather too!

The first two are more appealing to me Linda. Although, that first one is the winner for sure !!!

Thank you Dave! #1's location is the local (relatively small) arboretum, and it has been pretty good to me in spring and fall, including providing the water strider bugs :D

Three nice early fall images to whet our appetites for what you'll be showing us over the next month or so!

Like others, the first one just captivates me, with all those cross-knit webs, and the depth they create, along with the atmospheric effects. I wonder how the third would look processed to match the first and used as a set. They seem well suited to be looked at together.
