On our way for a week-end in New-Hampshire last October, me and my wife decided to drive through the Adirondack of upstate New-York to take full advantage of the autumn colors.

We passed by a spot that we have visited 2 years ago near Keene. Back then, I had posted a picture similar to this one of this beautiful mountain range.

This time around, the sky had some clouds that created some nice shadows. I decided to wait until I had the colorful mountains in the sun and the field in the FG in the shades; trying to capture the light at the right moment. I am generally pleased whit the final result.

Hi Patrick. Nice wide view od colorful autumn glory. Good lighting against the stunning sky. Regards. Jusni

Hi Patrick,
Great to see you post again. I hope you've been doing good. I love the many shades of red and yellow in these trees. They make a quilt of natural colors of the mountain. The contrast with the clear blue sky is great and adds that extra bit of contrast. The few clouds do give the needed touch of detail in the sky.
A wonderful clear photo where the empty FG draws the eye to the colored mountain.

Hi Patrick!

You present us a delightful autumnal landscape picture. The colours are simply superb, the sky is wonderful. It's a refreshing and at the same time so peaceful atmosphere.

Kind regards


Hello Patrick,

A beautiful panoramic shot of the mountains showing delightful autumnal colours. The contrast of light and shade was worth waiting for.
Lovely composition.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

The sunlight on this autumn colored hillside is really nice. The air seems so fresh and clean... without any haze to obscure the vista. The colors are rich, the exposure good and sharpness and depth of field

Hi Patrick

Nice to see you here again, old friend! I hope you are ok :)
This is a lovely shot of these gorgeous fall colors! The different species of trees here made this mosaic of lovely, natural colors come alive while the slope of the mountain made sure that you'd benefit from many tones and details all the way.
Great positioning and perfect exposure - with that beautiful blue sky to go along with everything else.

Bravo and TFS
