Natural landscapes: the glory of autumn red


I spent a lot of time with my camera at this quietly beautiful area east of Toronto, Canada’s largest city. Autumn is particularly picturesque there, not the least because of this plant. Sumachs are nothing special to look at most of the time, but when autumn comes – wow!
I did a fair bit of cloning out dark spots of decay to make this little scene as attractive as possible, but obviously left in some to keep what you’re looking at within the boundaries of realism. Photographed on my old Nikon D50 with a tripod and polarizing filter.

  1. I really like the way the yellow and red vertical lines on the leaves work in the image along with the yellow in the background being out of focus. Nice addition with the drop of water too.
