An impression of autumn
When the snow was falling last week, I enjoyed trying to create some interesting images from the collision of weather with the fall landscape. The photograph I shared earlier drew some very kind comments about the style of painting it was similar to. I agree with Linda who saw suggestion of Pointillism. Using a short exposure of 1/400th of a second froze the snowflakes in that photograph. Here, I used a longer exposure of 1/40th of a second. The slower shutter speed let the snow trace blurry paths through the scene. I liked the level of abstraction that created.
I like the motion blur too. brilliant colour.

When I was a child in Iowa, one of the great delights of winter was breathing on the frosty windows to create a ‘peep hole’ through which to see the new (or still blowing) snow. This photo reminds me of that. The “open space” in the leaves is like a peep hole that allows the trees to be seen. It’s a wonderful pairing with the previous photo.

I love the visual your words create for that window into winter. Thank you so much!

Chris, you, and your admirers, leave me in the dust. I wouldn’t recognize Pointillism if it “kissed me on the forehead”. I just like to look at how beautiful your photographs are!

So very beautiful. I love the way you captured the colors!

So beautiful. The shorter exposure worked perfectly to create an almost abstract painting.

Just lovely. This and the previous post. Being from Southern California, I’ve got another 3 months or so of heat before we start to really cool off, and these shots are giving me all the weather envy!
