Regular Random – Last of the Autumn Colour

Just outside my front door, I have two magnificent weeping cherry blossom trees, on either side on a large ornamental fish pond. These trees are dual purpose; in Summer they protect the front windows from harsh early morning – midday sun, in Winter when they have lost all their leaves, they let in the weak morning light. They are also quite structural in Winter, while in Summer they are full of glossy green leaves. In Spring they are covered in the most delicate of white, blush pink blooms for a few weeks and then in Autumn I get such a pop of colour, as they change from green to yellow and orange through to deep red.

I have purchased a new macro light ring for the Nikon camera and thought I would test it out on a late afternoon, with minimal natural light, love the results and I thought I would share as a quick 5-minute segment for this week.

All shot on the Nikon D7100, Tamron 90mm Macro lens between F/2.8 and F/4.5 ISO 160. I will post more about this light ring soon, as I am still testing it and playing with it.

Would you like to join in the RegularRandom event? Here’s how:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and pingback to this post

Don’t forget to check out Desley’s Pink Gin…looks divine and sounds purely delish!
