Natural landscapes: After the colours have gone
DUFFIN’S CREEK, GREENWOOD CONSERVATION AREA, PICKERING, ONTARIO
Many landscape photographers feel a bit of a let-down after the glory of autumn’s florescent colours ends and we’re left with a dead landscape until winter arrives. I’m certainly one of them, but on this day I went out anyway, looking for images in a part of this wonderful conservation area (east of Toronto, Canada’s largest city) that I rarely visit. I found this nice curve in the stream, but had to work hard to keep the bland, distracting grey sky out of the scene. Nikon FM2, Velvia slide film, tripod, polarizing filter.

I think I like the browns of fall just as much, it reminds me that any day it will turn white!
I like the browns of autumn, too, Eric. This time of year definitely challenges me to work with the limited colour palette and still come up with pleasing photographs.
Is that a hint of green there? 😀 J/K. I love it!
You’re slayin’ me, pal! 🙂 Thanks, as always, for looking & commenting.
I must admit to feeling a bit of a letdown myself once the leaves are gone. Nice job on this one.
