I photographed a couple of the landscapes at different times of the year. The first above was at the Beaver Lake Nature Center near Baldwinsville, New York. The upper photo was taken in the Spring on a cloudy day which accented the green leaves of the trees along the lake shore. The bottom photo was taken a couple of weeks ago as the Sun was setting bathing the scene in golden light. The leaves had changed from green to yellows, reds and browns. The migrating geese flying in the background tell you it is fall migration time.
The second location was at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park South Unit Visitor Center in Medora, North Dakota. These photos show an even greater difference in seasons from the cold and snow of early January compared to the colors of September. In both photos I used the tree for foreground interest against the high butte in the background. The stark difference shows how tough life can be over the course of a few months.
Not only were these photos taken at different times of the year but were taken with different cameras. The early year photos done with the Nikon D70 and Nikon 18-200VR lens while, the ones taken in the Fall, the Nikon D700 and Nikon 28-300VR lens was used. What a difference a few months make. Hmmm?
