Where Colors Play by PeterJCoskun Where Colors Play by PeterJCoskun
There are two primary colors associated with autumn foliage. Yellow and red. It's easy to find both if you look in the right place, but many associate fall foliage with trees. Although the trees steal the show 99% of the time, there are other plants that change brilliant colors as well. Ferns, are probably the easiest to recognize. Contrasting with the bright yellow aspens, the red fern leaves provide a beautiful red color during autumn. What really brought me to this scene was the range of colors throughout the image. There are greens, reds, yellows, oranges, and even blues that all come together here. Match that with the backlit foliage, and you have a VERY colorful combination. I'm always a sucker for sunstars, so I positioned myself in a way that would yield a clean sunstar with little flare just off center. These small intimate autumn scenes are becoming a favorite of mine, and cannot wait for more foliage to turn in the coming weeks.

Aspen corner- Flagstaff, Arizona.

Primo shot. Very different from the standard fall aspen composition you see all over the place. The inclusion of the ferns and the sun star really top this off. :clap:

Wonderful glow lighting! Fall is such an amazing time. I have been away from electricity for a long, long time traveling to see as much as I can during the season. Hope all is well, looking forward to being on-line again to check out all of your new work!

an absolutely beautiful shot! Have you noticed the grizzly in the dead tree just above the sun ball.... I always see faces in tree bark, and this one looks real convincing!

Thank you! Good eye on the grizzly face, I usually find faces in cliffs and trees as well.

Magnificent. I love the array of colors you captured here. Ferns are so unnoticed in the fall, but they are so beautiful! :) I'm a sucker for the sunstar as well, and the one in this photo is absolutley perfect! Heck, everything in this scene is; you have an excellent eye...I would never had found that spot(much less been able to shoot it!) ;)
