Photography, October Blossoms and Leaves
The photos try to capture the striking colors of the season. Weather doesn’t matter much. The blossoms are vibrant in the soft gray fog, and the leaves pop in golden October days. The photos of Indiana were taken from a moving bus. To re-create the sense of blending that occurred as we passed mile after mile of colorful woodlots, I used some long time exposures. I did some light post processing with Windows Photo Gallery and Ribbet, adding subtle vignettes, boosting the saturation slightly, adjusting detail (sharpening), and adding HDR effect to clouds (in “Clouds and Beans”).
