Fall Wonder #3

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.

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.
