New Fall Photos From Yesterday!

in photography •  7 months ago 

Yesterday afternoon, I grabbed the camera took a nice drive around the town where I live - Truckee, California. It's a great time of year up here with fall colors pretty much peaking in the area. I hope to get out again this weekend before strong winds knock all of these leaves out of the trees. It happens fast, and I saw quite of bit of leaves falling in the afternoon wind.

This first one is a stitched panoramic photo of the Truckee River in Downtown Truckee. Pretty much a 180 degree view.

This next shot below is at Donner Pond, also known as Coldstream Pond, near Donner Lake.

This abandoned home/shack is across the parking lot from the Cottonwood Restaurant. There is a great view of Downtown Truckee from this area but the colors weren't looking great from that spot so I shot something different.

This bridge below is walking distance from my house and it was actually my first stop. I must admit, I'm pretty lucky to live so close to a scene like this.

Thanks for looking and I hope you are all having a photogenic weekend out there!

Beautiful pictures, as always Scott!
If you don't mind me asking, how you do the star effect on the sun? It is very impressive :)

Thank you @fotostef! A small aperture is the #1 trick, those two sunbursts were both shot at f22. A wide angle lens also helps so the sun is a bit smaller in the frame. Lowering the "highlights" slider in Photoshop RAW or Lightroom helps define the star effect even a bit more. Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot!
I'll try this at first chance :)

Cool! Have fun and happy shooting!
