Natural landscapes: a touch of autumn red

MAPLE LEAF BRANCHES, GREENWOOD CONSERVATION AREA, AJAX, ONTARIO

This conservation area, east of Toronto (Canada’s largest city) is a favourite place for my wife and I to walk in and pray whenever we’re visiting the area. A few years ago I was there with my photography equipment, looking for interesting images, when I spotted this combination of amazing leafs and a distant hillside. Using the longest telephoto lens in my camera bag, I compressed the leaves and hillside together, eliminating distracting dull, white sky from the composition.
I also used an enhancing filter, to strengthen the reds. I don’t use this filter often (it often creates garishly unrealistic colours), but it was perfect here. Nikon D50, tripod, polarizing filter.
