Earth Tone Colors

The point of land you see above, juts out into the Vermillion River with a bay in behind. What attracted me to this particular scene was the earthly colors of the grass growing along the shoreline. With tones of brown, yellow and green creating a wonderful softness. By using that shoreline for my lead in and keeping the water to a minimum, I made a tight composition. There was a lovely yellow leaf covered tree here that I just had to incorporate into this scene. It really adds to the composition. The sky has a unique band of clouds. The morning mist adds to the mood. There is Fall color on the far shoreline with just a hint of reflection

Well that is it for now. Thank-you for stopping

Rushing Water

Hello everyone. It is now winter in my part of the country.We had a couple inches of snow the other day. Thank you for the comment Rebecca.

I was at Chutes Provincial Park in Massey Ontario for the first time with a couple photogrphy friends,John Kurczak and Paul Smith exploring the Chutes and Severn Sisters Falls this fall.

When I am out photographing, I am always on the lookout for a composition that is a little different than normal. The above photo fits that scenario. By framing the rushing water with the reddish brown ferns at the bottom and left side,your eye is led into the photo. On the right are unique chocolate rocks that have uniform shapes to add to framing the water.This shot was taken on a cloudy day at 10:00 AM in the morning. I had to wait till the sun went behind clouds to even out the lighting and not blow out the highlights in the water.I shot this photo on tripod at 35mm set to 1/4 sec. @ f22.
