View 451: Autumn’s Last Gift

Autumn of 2020 in upstate New York has been spectacular. Even after the colors had faded and most of the leaves had fallen, Autumn had one last gift.

A few days of 70 degree F (21 C) days dried up the fallen leaves making them perfect for the age old joy of jumping and playing in a pile of them. Add in a couple of children (aka my Grandson and Granddaughter) and one has the makings for beautiful Autumn portraits.

Autumn Portrait 1
Boy in a pile of Autumn leaves in Baldwinsville, New York on Monday, November 9 2020. Nikon D750/24-120VR, 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 360, EV 0, 38mm Focal Length, Fill Flash.

Well, my Granddaughter did not want her brother to have all the fun and joined him.

Notice how I used Fill Flash to fill in the shadows with the Sun behind them allowing them to have their eyes open. It creates lovely catch lights in their eyes, too.
