I wanted to announce that Jan Barcewski of Colorado won this months Jeff-foliage.com free print!
She choose this photo for her free print! If you are new to the website?? (that can’t be… :-)) But if you are reading this you’ve done half the work. Now you go to the sidebar and subscribe to the blog via email (needs to be an email you check enough to catch the announcement in a timely fashion)
Once you subscribe, you are automatically entered into my monthly contest. Right now it ends on December 31st 2012 but since I have almost 50 subscribers, if I get up to 100… I’ll continue it through 2013… So please tell your friends!
The background on the image she choose is this. Birch pond is for those visiting New England later in the season. The peak colors come to the coastal areas later and this image was shot around 20 Oct on an overcast day (as can be seen in the sky and water) The sun made periodic attempts to break through so what I ended up with is a bright soft light on the scene. The time is late morning 9-10AM which is a bit late for really great shots but I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
To me there is nothing better than the soft fall colors on the trees, reflecting on the water.
