20151013, 14, 15 Some more local colour including a visit along Hwy 522

It was difficult  NOT to take photos of the very vibrant colours we enjoyed the last few days.  Although a lot of the leaves were blown or rained off, there were still many scenes left to delight us.  Some examples:

Hwy 522:


Balsam Creek Road: P1700376-1 P1700382-1

20151011-12 Local colours

We went down to the Hwy 69 Bridge over Harris Creek again to see the changes in colours.   Here are three results:

P1700175-1-5 P1700193-1 P1700202-1-3

Have you figured out where the sun is in the uppermost photo?   Interesting challenge for the photographer!  I was intrigued by the reflection on the underside of the bridge, the lighting through the “tunnel” and the backlit leaves.  A good exercise in composition and exposure…….. and in post processing!

Here are some pics taken in Britt:

The “OPEN” sign has been unlit for a while now.
