I've always found fall colour shots a challenge, because you simply can't capture the vibrancy of what you see in person in a camera, especially not in an iphone camera! And the human eye is drawn to individual bright trees, but that's not what the camera captures best. But some shots are certainly better than others and sometimes you just get lucky. So here are some of my best fall colour shots from the past, most from nearly 10 years ago, along with some comments on what makes them my favourites.
Since 'whole tree pictures' aren't usually winners i photos, I'm leaving those out. The first group of these are shots capturing a portion of colourful trees, and the second group zoom in on just a group of leaves. If you find these sharper than my usual photos today, that's because they were all shot with my bigger Nikon, not just an iphone.
