2023-09-19 Fall Colours

With the official date for Fall just around the corner, I thought it appropriate to dedicate this photo challenge to the colours. We drove along the cowboy trail (hwy 22) yesterday and spotted beautiful fall scenery, which should get more beautiful in the coming two weeks. Anything with fall colours goes, from grand landscapes to minute macro detail

    Took this picture with my cell phone so I don’t have any data about the picture. It was taken by the little bridge west on the parking lot. Great birds there, too.

    Ripe tomatoes are one of the reds we get here in the fall, along with Virginia creeper and cotoneaster (sometimes). My neighbour since 1981, Frank has one of the few bungalows on a 50′ lot remaining on 15 Street. His entire backyard is a vegetable garden that he still rototills himself every spring. He’s 99. He also still drives his truck. I was walking by in the alley with our current dog, so only had my iPhone with me. He gave me four tomatoes in exchange for prints of the photos.

    Fall colours on the trails in Tuscany. Taken from my iphone.

      Really like the simplicity of this composition. It looks like a nice example of telephoto foreshortening, although you took it with an iPhone. I like the balance between the short shrubs and the yellow tree foliage. The path bisects the foreground nicely as well. One of our favourite Tuscany coulee hikes.

    the last of the sunflowers. On the paths in Tuscany.
