Fall in the Pisgah Forest, North Carolina

Posted by
Barbara Lee (Oakland, United States) on 1 November 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I have been working on the images I brought back from this quick trip through the Pisgah Forest, one of the most amazing natural settings I have ever visited. The woods explode with color, a cacaphony of twigs and branches growing every which way. Rhodendrons grow at the feet of many of these trees, their buds holding the promise of spring color.

All of the photos from this journey will appear very busy and chaotic. It is the job of the photographer to try to bring focus to this chaos. My wonderful photographer friend Charles Cramer does it so well! You may want to look at some of his work at Look especially at his trees portfolio for his images from the Carolinas. I certainly did not have the luxury of time on this trip to seek out the very best. Charlie wil always me my role model for this kind of photography!

NIKON D90 1/2 second F/16.0 ISO 250 112 mm (35mm equiv.)
