This time of the year brings a lot of photographers outdoors to photograph the fall color. In Montana Yellowstone is one of the hot spots to go to in the fall because of the great fall color spots as well as the fall rut going on with the Elk. Fall has always been one of my favorite times to go out shooting, with the D4 and 24-70 AF-S on my lap, I just pick a direction and go.
The one nice thing about working with fall color leafs is that you can’t really get it wrong. Everything from abstract to documentary is possible during this season. One thing that I always strive for is trying to find that balance while making a unique capture. I took this shot a couple years back because it was such a small grove of trees situated around a pine forest. The contrast of the two just made me stop and enjoy. It’s little things like that contrast that can make a big impact in your photography.
