[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This unseasonably cool summer has me thinking about autumn already. So, I went through some of my favorite fall shots and thought this one of a dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) would be a nice one to usher in the next season, whenever it arrives. Its delicate leaves and brilliant fall color never fail to thrill me.

We are fortunate to have an arboretum within 10 minutes of our home, and I spend many happy hours walking around photographing the trees, plants and wildlife there. This tree grows near the lake there.

For more information about dawn redwoods, be sure to read this interesting bit of their history at the Dawes Arboretum website.

Spectacular composition with great mixture between the branches, the foreground and the background. The colors are superb. Bravo!

Kimberley, this is awesome. I like the backlight from the sun glowing through the leaves. Wonderful.

I really like this picture Kimberley. It is like a painting. The colors are so warm; it gives a very attractive look to the ensemble.

Hi Kimberly,
This is really top-notch exhibiting an excellent use of wide aperture, flowing composition, and beautiful lighting. I like the hint of detail in the bark. Well done!

Hi Kimberly,
Pleasing image, with some interesting shadow & light. Nice warm color and I like the trees branches running through on the diagonal :)
Well done.

Hi Kimberley,
Una imagen realmente estupenda, como para hacer un cuadro y colgar de la pared. Esos colores son hermosos, me gusta como las hojas llenan todo. Excelente trabajo
