Just the other day, I had one of these moments when I discovered a tiny 2 inch autumn leaf on our living room window. What amazed me the most was that it was so perfectly straight and aligned. Curiosity kicked in and made me wonder how the leaf actually ended up where it was. If one thinks about it, the fall leaf must have been blown off a tree nearby to start its journey, traveled through the air and then with the help of the rain and raindrops glued itself to our window. And this all happened over night during a feisty rainstorm, early in the morning or just seconds before I looked out of the window to figure out what the possibilities for exceptional nature photography would be that day. Mind boggling, isn't it?
Because the lighting on the leaf was so exceptional I had to pull out my camera and tripod. The beautiful neon like leaf illumination was created by an overcast morning light where the sun is almost breaking through the clouds. The background in the picture was made of the lawn and trees in the park opposite our house. So, who is your Santa? Mother Nature definitely is my Santa and if I open my mind and eyes, she brings joy, day in and day out. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

The other day I set up on the parking garage of Boston Science museum. It is one of my favorite locations and I love to see the sunlight fade and the city lights come to life. This day I went straight to work and kept on photographing the City Skyline of Boston while the sun was setting and disappearing. I included in the composition the skyline reflections and such Boston landmarks as the Longfellow Bridge, Prudential Center, John Hancock building and placed the Charlesgate Yacht Club as a foreground feature. The exposure of the photograph was timed to to coincide with the Boston T subway crossing over the Longfellow Bridge. At ISO 100, the aperture was set to f/4.5 resulting in a 10 second exposure time. In the post processing steps I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting and color saturation before sharpening.

This week's photo of the week is "NE Fall Foliage" showing the Boston Arnold Arboretum in peak New England fall foliage colors. Juergen used a polarizing filter to saturate colors and remove distracting glare on the leaves and to boost autumn colors in this landscape photography setting.
