Autumn Is Falling... All Around Us....

 This Ginkgo tree is several blocks away from our home in Fort Valley. It is always so pretty, but I have not photographed it for several years. It was looking good last week, and I was afraid that by the rains were gone, I had waited too late to shoot it.

I braved the 30 degree weather to get some shots this morning, and it was worth the cold. Both shots are with the fish eye lens. For the bottom shot I got down in the grass, with the front element of the lens inches away from the closest leaf. 

When shooting trees like this, always be sure to walk around a view from all sides. The way the light hits the leaves can make a huge difference in you photo.

A Place From My Youth

This past week while in Columbus, I rode out to Flatrock Park.
Our family often visited the park while I was growing up. It was one of my favorite places.
Spent lots of time climbing those hills, playing on the huge rocks. Here is one of the images I shot Wednesday. The first is an HDR, the second I converted to black and white. Love the black and white.

I shot at a really low shutter speed (1/5 sec) and used a very low ISO (50) to get the blur in the running water.
