Reflection of Fall Colors


We have had a week of rain here in Central New York, but today the Sun, and blue sky were out.  And so were the fall colors.

I stopped by a pond in the late evening and was able to catch this photo with the beautiful fall colors reflecting off the water.

I also had a very pleasant surprise of being able to photograph a beaver as it swam around the pond.  I hope to do something special with those photos.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/40 sec, Aperture f/9.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 75 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 121mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.

Hello Steve, this pictures is so nice. The water and the colorful trees in what looks like a place of peaceful solitude. I really like how the water mirrors this wonderful scene.

Thanks for being part of Weekend Reflections!

Beautiful reflections. When looked from sideways,it looks like a humane figure - with cap,eyes etc.

I envy you that lens!! You have a very nice autumn, and the reflection captured its many colours very well.

PS Thank you for the comments! I feel almost embarrassed after so many nice words :-) I like to learn myself and assume that so do other photobloggers. An exchange of information is therefore a must. I have learned a lot myself from others.

I have recently joined a local photo-club and discovered how much more I need to learn :-) Good luck with your new venture and give my regards to your friends there. Of course, if there is anything I can help with, I'll do my best.
