You Capture – Autumn

28 Oct

This week was a great chance to test out my new camera.  And the “nifty fifty”.  Ohhhhh the bokeh.  Creamy creamy bokeh.  I’d never shot anything that could drop to anything less than an f4.5 so the f1.8….glorious!  And running on all manual mode (SO MUCH EASIER ON CANONS) was fun too!

You Capture – Autumn

My favorite seasons are the transitional ones.  The ones of change.  Spring and Autumn.  With Spring, new life is coming.  Blossoms emerge, flowers bloom and the sun starts coming out more.  With autumn, that process is reversed, but still glorious.

Trees start to morph from their natural greens to other colors. It seeps into them, morphing into some sort of alien hybrid.

Bright colors pop up amongst the deep emerald greens of the evergreens.

Spots of color contrast against the otherwise boring gravel roads home.

Flames arrive to shine against the occasional blue clear sky.

Rains come more often, coating everything in dew drops throughout the day.

But the sunrises. Oh the glorious fiery sunrises.  They come earlier and mean there is more darkness during the day, but it is so worth it!

Oregon, I love you.

All photographs taken with my iPhone and are straight out of camera. Errr, phone. Whatever.

You Capture – Fall

I love Fall.  Not as much as I love Spring, but still love Fall.  The joy of cooler temperatures after the heat.  The smell and sound and feeling of the rains finally returning (I’m an Oregonian, I love rain).  Being able to drink hot tea any time of the day, instead of having to wait until night comes and cools off.

The smell of fresh biscuits being baked.
