This is a beautiful time of year in the northern hemisphere, and Utah is certainly no exception. My wife and I went for a drive Sunday afternoon to capture these beautiful colors. Monday she was watching a local magazine program on television and they had a guest on talking about the beautiful colors and the best places to capture them. #1 on his list of the 5 best places was exactly where we had been to capture these. Hopefully you can see why. Since this is a photography blog I'll point out a couple things. When going out to capture the color of fall don't forget to get some up close as well as distance shots. I like to shoot in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is at an angle to give you highlights and shadows. In the distance shots shown here the sun was angled toward me, but that was the best direction to get the most color, so I used Photoshop to burn in some of the more distant hillside. I also had a polarizing filter to help capture the color at it's best. Hopefully it's not too late to get out there and capture some of the beauty and color of fall. Or if you are in a different part of the world, mark your calendar for when the best time is so you don't miss it.
I'm working on the next installment of the 10 Cool Features of Your Digital Camera You Should Learn and Use series. This next one (I may have to make it more than one) will be about the Scene Modes found on many of the Point & Shoot cameras, so come back soon and check them out.
