It's Almost Leaf Season Again

My favorite season for rural photography has to be Fall.  This year in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, the peak of the color is still several weeks away. I couldn't contain my excitement -  last week a road trip through the southern area of Alamance County and adjacent areas of Chatham County was in order.

The point of the short trip was to identify specific areas for an actual shooting trip later in October.  No stopping - just burn that cheap $2.99 gas and move on.  But I couldn't help pausing several times to shoot images that work regardless of the season. The one above is an example.

Although the image needs some more work before printing, I believe it will be a stunner.  The final composition is a combination of three vertical shots pieced together via software.  As a consequence, the resolution of the image goes from a respectable 16 MB to around 48 MB. The higher resolution will allow me to print an impressive 4+ ft wide gallery canvas, should I wish.

Meanwhile I'll clean my lenses and charge my batteries in preparation for the real thing.

Stay tuned. . .
