Take a Seat, Rest a While...

...and let the magic of autumn take you away with its enchanting beauty. At least this is what I felt like when I saw this spot in Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia. I loved the carpet made of fallen foliage and the red leaves framing the scene over the top. This was just a perfect Autumn moment.

This is the kind of photo that really just about takes itself. It was just a matter of working out a simple composition and using a polarising filter to enhance the saturation and remove glare. The bench was an excellent element as well. I always find them very inviting for the viewers and I was also thinking of this when trying to come up with a title.

I like how the branches and red leaves also lead from the bench towards the brighter tree in the background. This where I wanted the attention to go once you have all sat down and settled in :-)
