It's all about the light

Today is a picture day. I worked late this evening so I had to look back in my archives for a picture. I searched for Autumn leaves. This was the first picture it returned from the thousands of pictures in my files.

I shot it last October. The oak and hickory stand on the hillside overlooking the Sipsey Fork of the Warrior River. This was taken about 9 a.m. in the morning. The sun had just risen over the trees to the east. It looks like late afternoon light, but the evening sun comes from the opposite direction.

The one thing I've learned about taking pictures is that each frame is all about the light. Once my eyes picked up on that one fact, my pictures improved.


  1. LOVE the arboreal fireworks.

  2. Beautiful picture ! It is always all about the light and I love this time of year! Nature is just radiant even when the sun isn't shinning !

  3. I am guilty of saying, "That would have made a great picture!" After the fact! You do good!

  4. I can never get a photo to see the beauty my eyes actually are seeing. This picture has a wow factor. I can imagine what it was really like standing there.

    Love it!!

  6. This is just a beautiful shot! I love the blaze of colours. It has been so warm here this year that I find our leaves don't have the same vibrancy they usually have which is a shame. I have not learned the trick of lighting yet

  7. I believe you.
    Hugs, Julia
