I am guessing these are probably more what folks have in mind when they think of autumnal photos in the Adirondacks. On our photography trip, the first place we stopped was Greenwood Creek State Forest. Here's where D began his photography lessons for the day.
I took about a zillion photos here, but only liked a handful. As so often happens with my photography, I am either in the groove or not, and for some reason gorgeous fall leaves and waterfalls weren't as inspiring for me on Sunday as they would normally be. Apparently I was more in the mood for industrial decay (see previous post). Still, I do really like some of these:
Among the things I experimented with was the aperture, which affects the depth of field. Although I knew what changing the aperture does for the depth of field, I made a point of taking the same shot with extreme differences in the aperture setting, just for comparison's sake. I thought this was an amazing example of the power of the aperture. The first was taken at an f 6.3 , and the second at f 36. (No, M, I did not bother to identify the type of fungus... yet):
And just some more water, leaves, and rocks:
