Love the gold and peachy colors. All these maple leaf photos would make a great wall collage.

Ahh, beautiful maples. I love this one a lot.

A truly spectacular photo of the mature leaf color Chris. What kind of lens are you using. I like the lighting and the shallow depth of field focus on this photo. Just when I think your pictures can't get any better - it does! You amaze me.

VL and Oswegan I think the maples were extra beautiful this year.

Hello Ki,

Thanks so much. I think this is the best picture I have taken all fall. I don't know if it was as windy down your way on Friday but I was extra happy to get this due to the conditions. I used the D70s with the 50mm/1.8 lens. I looked up the shooting data and it was 1/1250 sec, @ F/1.8. Exposure bias at -0.3. The 50mm is the best $119 I have ever spent on photography equipment.

Gorgeous colours just dangling there like that.

This is a favorite shot, perfect for 'golden' November. We still have GREEN trees here also ... don't remember a fall like this where golden leaves sway, reluctant to say goodbye.

Hope future posts tell of your audition ... Good Luck!
