Frosty Leaves at Home

I’m sure this was a busy weekend for everyone, I know it was for me. If you would still like to participate in the next Points of View Photo Project, I’ve decided to reschedule it for this coming Friday instead.

If you’re new to the project, simply click on the link above, download the photo and edit it to your heart’s content. When you’re done, email your version of it to me at by Wednesday night and it will be included in a gallery of everyone’s interpretation of the common source image.

Also, I would like to publicly thank Troy Breidenbach, president of IGT America and sponsor of the October Photo Contest, for not only donating the prize for our winner but for the more than generous offer of giving each of our honorable mentions a free sublimated metal photo as well! Thank you Troy for all that you’ve done and for your support in this past contest and those to come! You and your team are awesome!

And now, onto my latest photos:

Frosty Leaves Triptych

I am rarely up before 9:30 on a Saturday morning and it’s even rarer that I am awake before Kim any day of the week but I found myself up and ready to go around 8am.

The brisk air due to the 20-something degree weather overnight was more refreshing than chilling when I took our dachshund puppy, Milo, out. And as I wandered around the back yard listening to the leaves and frosty grass crunch under my feet I was truly inspired for the first time in quite awhile. So, I ran inside, grabbed my camera and snapped a few frames before finally giving in to the fact that it was still below freezing and I should probably head inside.

The result is the above triptych – thank you Kim for suggesting that I display them this way (I love being married to an artist!) – that, surprisingly required very little post-processing, The light was just about perfect and the colors just worked. I particularly love the almost gray greens and the subdued red and oranges that provide a nice contrast.

I can’t wait to do some more shooting real soon!
