The Fall color has begun to pop which is awesome! Over the past week things have really started to change in the landscape world. October is a great month to be out as the trees are turning and mammals are getting those great big bushy winter coats. Without a doubt it’s still one of my favorite times to be in the Rockies.
When it comes to working fall color is there a wrong way to work the scene? It’s hard to answer that since there are so many ways to work with landscapes. The big part of fall landscapes is color. Using color correctly isn’t just about the bright yellows and oranges but also the surrounding colors that go with it. That color contrast between orange and green is important to remember when composing. I went wide and tight with these two shots both taken with the D750 and 24-70 AF-S. Real simple clicks while out walking. As you can see the color hadn’t quite gotten to full strength on this section of the Yellowstone River but pretty soon it will. Can’t wait to go back there.
