I took advantage of a sunny Saturday this past weekend and went for a nice long walk in the University Parks. Although the peak colors had passed and the rain brought many leaves down, there was still plenty to enjoy looking at. Autumn is probably my favorite season, I like the crisp air and bright colors. I also really like trees. This tree is located along the east side of the park, and I’m standing almost in the River Cherwell. The sun was in just the right position in the sky to really light up the bright yellow canopy, and I love the contrast with the bark and shadows below. This tree is much larger than it appears and it was tough to capture without getting wet. Hopefully you can’t tell, but this is a composite of three images.
1/30s f/5.6 18mm ISO 125. 3 images merged and contrast adjusted. Au revoir until next week.
