Autumn in the New Forest, a great time to explore and notice the details… the photo below captured on my 5D mark iii with my nifty 50, is to me a great autumn image, the leaves are just turning, puddles offer reflections, the sun is shining and the path is inviting you to explore.
This one was taken on the Canon G7x,the pony snuck up on me when I was trying to capture some small fungi… and then a noise in the distance caught his attention and he turned his head – I just love the sense of scale that you get from using the widest angle of the photo and the catch light in the ponies eye just adds a little more…
Forest fungi, high up on a tree, I love the colours and the textures the camera was able to record and by shooting wide again – you get a great sense of place. By using the wide aperture of the camera, it helps to create separation from the background, and using the touch screen to focus meant I could angle the shot much higher.
More fungi .. what a great clump. This was in direct sunlight which ruined the shot, but by moving my husband so he was able to create shade with his bod I was able to capture a lovely mellow toned image.
There is much more fungi around in the New Forest this year as there has been a ban on picking it.
Two different cameras, some lovely autumn images all taken in camera raw … and developed slightly in light room, capturing moments like these remind me that we need to enjoy the local area, capture its uniqueness and share it with others.
