It took me something like 20 years to figure it out, but with our looooonnnngggg summer season we wind up compressing the fall and winter seasons to a few weeks. While the rest of the country is getting ready for their first sleet and snow storms we finally get our fall color.
I shot this on my way to the river yesterday (it was dry – again) in Duarte along Royal Oak Drive. Where is your favorite spot to find some fall color around here?
This image was shot 3 frames bracketed with photomatix generating the HDR file as well as doing the tone-mapping. The final image was post processed in Virtual Photographer to replicate the over saturated colors found on the old ‘chromes printed on cibachrome print material
