More Fall Foliage

More Fall Foliage

These shots were taken in New Milford, Connecticut two weeks ago. The first one is another shot where the polarizer filter was upside down. I have finally figured out there is a little arrow to show where the effect in relation to the end of the lens. Some of them have them and some don’t. The church shot is the same church that has been posted on this site before. This fall season has been one of the best in my recent memory. The foliage shots I have taken have been better than my previous attempts which has been encouraging. Often times when I am not good at something I will shy away from it and this year I decided to meet the challenge and try some foliage shots. There is still a ways to go to really capture the majesty of colors but I am happy with the headway I have made this season.

We are leaving today for a 6-day visit to see my sister and new nephew. They live in Sonoma, California, which of course is in Wine Country. I hope to update this site with some trip pictures while I am gone but you never know about Internet access when on the road. We get to spend one day and night in San Francisco. The whole area is, in many ways, a photographer’s dream and hopefully I will get a few nice images. It was funny since I spent about an hour packing up my camera gear and about 15 minutes packing my clothes.

Enjoy California!

We have been loving our polarizing filter and it is fun to twirl it around for different effects.
