Photography As Abstract – Autumn

Today I’m showing another of my abstract photos. If you want to see the other posts with abstract photos, please click here.

This photo was taken about two weeks ago. The subject was the same autumn leaves that I posted a still image of earlier (you can view the post here). Can you see the connection between the two photos?

To me, today’s image speaks of fall and how quickly the leaves can change. I like the warm colors in the image and the blue of the sky.

Taken with my 105mm lens at f/36 at a shutter speed of 1/13, while I moved the camera in a diagonal motion.

And then throw in Kame and Kroten, and I have my cute factor fill for a week. 🙂 I did visit your blog, and I like your images! It was a hard situation to shoot in with the sun, but you told a great story with your photos, and I think that is wonderful Loved seeing all that falling water and people having fun. Good job! Take care!

        It always brighten my heart to read/hear someone told me my turtles are cute *hug*

      • You’re so welcome! I loved looking at the photos, as they told a story, no matter about the sun. I loved the ones with your friends, swimming, boating, etc. too. Just a wonderful photo journalism set of photos.

        I love Kame and Kroten! I’ve never seen turtles like that (although I fell for a snapping turtle once when I was younger 🙂 ). And I do think your photos show just how cute and adorable they are. You are a great photographer! 🙂
