This is my absolute FAVORITE time of year to be out with my camera. Not only are the leaves vibrant and beautiful, but being outside as the season wanes from summer to fall has a certain feeling to it. The crunching of the leaves in the woods and crispiness of the browning grass in the fields is a sound that soothes my soul. I live to capture those feelings with my camera. While sometimes I don't succeed there are others where I come close, like this photo:
I was walking through the woods near our hunting camp. The baby was in a carrier on my chest. When I saw this tree I knew that I had to photograph it. To get this shot I actually had to almost lay down on the ground at a slightly sideways angle. Before the baby such a move would be easy, but with an infant in a carrier on one's chest it is almost impossible. Somehow I succeeded in successfully taking a photo and capturing the 'tallness' of this magnificent tree.
