That Last Weekend of Color

Last weekend marked the last weekend of color. Fortunately, I managed to get outside for a little while and capture these images. I have discovered that adjusting the shutter speed and the ISO produces better images than the preset landscape setting. I was having problems with the sunlight washing out the color when I was using the landscape setting. For a while, I was getting frustrated with my eight megapixel dSLR, thinking that it had outlived its life after eight years of use. I am happy to discover that I was wrong, and that I am still able to capture the images that appear below.

A Quiet Corner of the World

My corner of the world is a quiet one, where my concerns are things like the changing color in the trees outside of my door. All I can offer is a few moments of peace. One of my regrets is not getting outside often enough to enjoy the changing season. Perhaps, if anything, these pictures can make one see what exists in one's own world.

Weston Bend State Park

One of my favorite places to visit during the autumn is Weston Bend State Park, which overlooks the Missouri River. Once the leaves start falling, the river becomes more visible from the bluffs. These pictures reflect a slight change in the season. As a photographer, I am slowly learning how to use my camera, and these pictures begin to show my using the manual settings on my dSLR. It has taken me eight years to figure out some of the manual settings. Technology often has me stumped.

Early Autumn at Wyandotte County Lake

Autumn seems to be arriving later this year. There is a slight change in the color of the trees in these pictures taken at Wyandotte County Lake.
