Yakima Area Arboretum
I find that most of my images focus on details and small vignettes. As I try to portray the larger grand landscape, I tend to fall short.. But I still keep trying. This scene set itself up for me: an interesting foreground, a reflective mid ground, and a colorful background that helped frame the image.
The Yakima Area Arboretum is a beautiful place to be on a fall morning.
Miracles happen. I saw leaves gently falling. Quickly. I brought my camera to my eye and froze these two leaves on my first shot. Sometimes I just get lucky.
A gentle breeze rustles by
The leaves, soon they fall,

Yakima Arboretum, Yakima, WA
Full fall color is all around us. For the next several posts, I will share some of the autumn wonder that has caught my eye.
Summer beauty has past.
Fall gradually flows to winter.
The memory remains,
Canon XT-IR, Tamron 18-270mm @ 65mm, f/11, 1/500 sec, ISO 400
Cherry trees are in bloom and brilliant green leaves are emerging at the Yakima Arboretum. It is a great time to get out my old IR converted Canon Rebel XT and try out some IR imagery. It was a beautiful spring day and I had a little time in the middle of the day to get out and explore. I chose to work in B&W using Infrared. The Arboretum was showing its early spring pink and white blooms of the cherries and pears as well as a few trees with emerging brilliant light green leaves. Tomorrow I will go again with my normal camera.
