November Challenge – Autumn Colour (Color)

Recommended Posts

Many thanks, Ed, for running the October competition, and many thanks, too, to those who voted for my photo.

 

As I look out of my window whilst typing, I see autumn colour.  Autumn colour has featured in many of the photos taken by me over the years, when sometimes autumn colour has been the main subject, and on other occasions autumn colour has given a back drop for an architectural photo, etc.  So this months challenge is Autumn Colour – as a subject, as a background, in close-up, in rural or urban locations, in the studio, the creative, the conventional, or the quirky.

The usual rules apply, up to three photos submitted per person, with eight being selected for a vote at the end of the month.  Hopefully, there will be many forum members who will have images to submit, and I think there will be lots of pics submitted that will inspire us all.

Well done on a great image Graham.

 

Admit it though, you chose the subject because of the "greenies vs reddies" farrago, didn't you?

 

:P

This one could be ... challenging. I don't own a colour camera. Perhaps time to borrow one for a test drive?

What camera can only photograph in b/w? I haven't seen one- video- since the Sony Portapak at college 35 years ago.

Colin, your #2 picture is very relaxing and that golden color on the stream is just amazing. Congratulations!

Merci Olivier

Its a lovely spot. The forest there is mostly fir trees but there is a stand of maples and the branches form a bridge over the river. When the sun is on them the light underneath by the river is lovely.

Looks as if everyone between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn will be left out of this one, which means less competition. B)

EDIT: I replaced two images because I now remember submitting them to the last "Autumn Colour" challenge a couple of years ago. Hope I didn't break any rules.
