When I was working, the Fall season always seemed like a glass half empty. But, now that I get to play all year round, I have time to appreciate its true beauty. I find myself looking forward to its approach, knowing of the opportunities to capture its many colours… like these golden leaves floating with some kelp in the bright, low lying sun.
But it’s not just the changing colours of the leaves. The sunsets (and sunrises) during the Fall season are a much celebrated event. I won’t try to explain why this happens; it’s just the magic of the season. As each day draws to a close, there is an eager anticipation, watching the sun tuck behind the hills to the west and waiting for the colours to emerge.
I captured the image above on a Halloween evening, two years ago, and then just a couple of days ago, this image of the same hillside presented itself. I’ve been using the camera on my iPhone quite a bit lately and used the HDR function to take the picture. I’m quite pleased with the result. The two pictures of the same scene seem like mirror images, with the vividly coloured clouds like brackets on each side of the hills. I’m not sure which I prefer – which do you like?
