I thought I would take today to say goodbye to one of nature’s greatest testimonies to her own beauty and tranquility…..autumn. Saying goodbye is never easy, but every year at this time waving adios to fall leaves a lump in my throat.
I’ve got five great fall pictures from four superb photographers today. As you will see, they contain a wide variety of artist’s statements as to what this season can mean.
I am sure we have all made a few fall images with that “stretching to the sky” feel. This Justin Reznick photo is as good and as it gets. I enjoy the mood affecting angle. This wide angle view does make those trees seem 500 feet tall. I love the sunstar and how it breaks up our (as viewers) climb into the sky.
Justin returns with this powerful shot of autumn along the Dallas Divide in the Colorado Rockies. I have savored many a scene like this in my past and those memories are poignant yet happy.
Such a delicate yet colorful scene! John Paul Caponigro made this image in Japan and it is exactly what I think of when Japan in autumn comes to mind. It is jarring in its color, but peaceful in its attitude.
Michael Frye made this more understated image in Yosemite N.P. and it provides us with a softer more surreal vision of fall.
I believe this one was made along the Mono Lake Basin in California. Jeff Sullivan tripped the shutter and I will leave you with this picture as it does much to bridge autumn and winter. Winter will soon provide the nature photographer with her own magic to share.
Have a great day, Wayne
