Autumn Glow

A Japanese Maple Tree comes blazing to life at the peak of the Autumn season in the Blue Mountains in Australia. I found a number of these trees in the fantastic Everglades Garden in Leura.

To get this shot I had to get right in under the canopy, literally inside the leaves and branches. Light was slightly harsh but I think it gave the colourful leaves a wonderful glow that I enhanced slightly through the application of Orton effect in Photoshop.

This is the kind of a photo that I have been hoping to take for a while and it was high on my list during our recent trip to the Eastern side of Australia.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/30 second F/8.0 ISO 400 24 mm
