Fall is probably one of the most colourful times of year but for me it means winter is coming. I hate cold.
I got the chance this week to photograph my cousin and her boyfriend. My cousin wanted some pictures done for christmas for both of their parents so I was called to bat.
I finally splurged and got the newest version of light room because I mostly shoot in RAW it's very helpful to have an easy to use, powerful program at my disposal; especially on this day because pictures were dark due to overcast.
A photographer looking for great pictures will go to great lengths for that "shot". I climbed up a tree to get this one. Then I almost fell out of it as a branch almost cracked in half. Call me nimble I landed on my feet before it nearly snapped and I broke my camera and face.
In our long growing season (longest in Ontario) our trees are still pretty green. I was up closer to Toronto this week and it seemed the trees were orange and yellow and red, not green then brown like here.
Driving down the escarpment on my recent road trip adventure. You can't tell I was in a vehicle.
Then back up another part of the escarpment. See how pretty the trees are there?! I think it has something to do with hills. I love hills. I want to live in the hills.
Just as we rounded a corner we had to dodge a branch sticking out. That was close. You can see the truck antenna there on the right. I had to be quick to snap that one.
Just for the record I was not driving and taking pictures at the same time.
Some oak leaves which I had to seriously edit due to someone screwing up my white balancing attempts several times. You know who you are.
I have to admit fall does have some benefits like this lovely colour. However it means winter is just around the corner. Brrrrr!
