Impressions of Autumn

More so than summer or winter, fall is a time of rapid change in the northern latitudes, especially in the long shadow of the Rockies.

Light disappears at both ends of the day. Colours abound. Rain drops freeze overnight and moths no longer come to the window.

Photographs of vivid sweeping landscapes are popular this time of year. As for me, I’m drawn to out-of-the-way spots where Autumn reveals herself in different ways.

    1. Thanks Judi. I’ve taken a number of these photos (done with a very slow shutter speed and moving the camera with my hand) and love the results. Not sure how others view them so it was good to hear back from you. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Adele, I have had a lot of fun with these “impressions”. Those misty mornings are lovely — we get them here too in Alberta but you have to get up early to catch them. Fog happens occasionally too (I got imprinted on it growing up on the Coast) and I love exploring it with the camera.

    1. Thanks so much, Curt! They are fun to shoot — I stumbled on this idea by accident (low light, no tripod, couldn’t hold the camera steady) and really liked the effect. I tried it several times during the day and each time I learn something different.
