Fading Season

Posted by

A return to Autumn scenery. This image comes from just outside of the Blue Mountains and a little further inland towards the west. The colours were in their full fiery guise, however, strong winds made most of them fall to the ground by the time we got there.

I did not mind that as it added to the "fading season" feeling that Autumn was now moving past and Winter was nearing. Still there were enough colours around to keep interest and that spot just had a wonderful flow and look to it. I suspect it would look fantastic in just about any season.

The majestic poplar trees surrounded the road and it felt almost like walking through a tunnel. I used a polarising filter to cut the sheen off the leaves and to give a saturation boost to the colours.
