Yesterday, I rode to Shenandoah National Park and reconn'd the mountains for Fall color. I was going to camp but the wind was howling out of the northwest on account of an early arctic blast and a lot of leaves were prematurely ripping from the trees. Peak Autumn color is a week away. Despite this, these leaves, wet from the spray of upper Doyle's Falls, were saturated with orange, yellow and red. This for many might be an average waterfall scene but for me it was an exercise to practice hyper focus (focusing 1/3 into a scene to achieve better depth of field and take advantage of the lens' sweet spot without stopping down to f22). Thanks to my pal and pro photographer, Frank Ruggles, I'm getting better! See Frank's work on Facebook or visit his site here.
