Photography: autumn pictures
I usually go out and take photographs on a Sunday afternoon because there is less traffic and I can drive around more easily. Things didn’t go according to plan this week and it rained a few times. I managed to take a few pictures though.
I wanted to experiment with settings and try to separate the autumn colours more. Many of the trees in England are deciduous and so lose their leaves now. This gives a variety of colour, but the colours often seem as if they blend into one. I like this picture because it looks typically English, apart from the family in the photo!
I was sitting in the car taking these shots out of the window. For this shot I selected programmed auto and increase the ISO to 6400 and the exposure compensation a little. It was quite dark and about to rain so it’s given an interesting picture.
I put the pictures on Facebook to see what reaction I get before using them elsewhere and this was the most popular one. The light changed and so I simply set the camera on landscape for this one.
There is a variety of trees in this bit of woodland that lose their leaves at different times. The fallen leaves adding to the autumn colours. The river Tame is just beyond those trees and in spring there will be lot of flowers lining the river.
Finally, something different. I took this photo of a scroll that is on the wall in my living room. The picture is actually embroidered onto the parchment like scroll. It was given to me by a international student from China when she came to the UK to study. She graduated with a BA last year and will soon graduate with a MSc in International business administration. You can double click that picture for a better view.
