Autumn abstract

On the first day of October, I was in Banff National Park and found great fall colors across the Bow Valley.  I returned to Hillsdale Meadow along the Bow Valley Parkway where I expected the larch would be showing their best golds and yellows. I wasn’t disappointed!  For this image, I used a slow shutter to abstract the landscape similar to how I had done with the same stand of trees in July.  I moved the camera downwards during the 1/40th of a second exposure to exaggerate the vertical lines present in the golden trees and echoed in the evergreens in the mountainside behind.

  7. Great photo–incredible color. Did you use a slower shutter speed while panning?

    • Thank you. I used a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second which allowed for the blurred effect when I panned the camera vertically.

  8. I hope you do a winter version to go with summer and fall.

    • That’s a great idea! I will likely have the opportunity to make that version soon!
