Trees, glorious trees

Just a little tree porn. When I got up this morning, I saw one of the maples in my backyard has transformed into its flaming red fall best.

It took me forever to get a shot I was happy with. Even this doesn’t really do it justice. The leaves are so bright red they look like they’re glowing, even in this dim cloudy morning light. One of these days I really need to learn to use a camera. Maybe it will look better on your monitor than it does on mine.

  1. I prefer a lot of tree porn, not just a little.

    Nice backyard!

    Nothing wrong with your use of the camera. Great picture!

    Thanks, McB, Thanks J. The colors are just… off. They actually look kind of muddy and muted compared to the live view, it’s just frustrating not to be able to capture that. And the sky wasn’t all whitish either, I don’t know how to not wash out the sky like that. I don’t have Photoshop so I can’t play with it that way either. It looks too orangey, it’s really a more brilliant red. Argh.
