Mountains in Virginia. Elevation: Above 3500 feet. No more 2018 Fall colors. Trees are mostly bare of leaves now. Snowed earlier this week. It was a nice Fall, and I was pleased I saw and photographed what I did.
If I had my way, I’d be posting colorful landscape photos here, containing vibrant colors, on mountainous terrain, with nice blue sky and puffy clouds above. Alas, such is not to be so far this Fall. Not to be deterred, I seek what I can get. In the case of these images, it’s close up, backlit areas of color-change seen on trees near home. “Light” is critical for these type images. I prefer backlit leaves because lots of detail results, along with good color. I always stand in the shade when making the shot, to prevent lens flare and over exposure.
