Abstract Autumn Impressionism

Tree photography during fall foliage high and peak colors always makes for great photography. The other day I made a photo trip up to one of my New England favorite locations: the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Route 112 starting in Lincoln and driving through the White Mountains towards Conway is one of America’s most scenic byways. The byway is more commonly known as the Kancamangus Highway and it is a prime destination for autumn leaf peeping and photography. Year round it attracts outdoor lovers as it provides access to some of the best hiking in the Whites. Along the winding roads of this beautiful byway there are many pullouts that provide magnificent vistas across the wilderness area. One of my favorite spots is Lily Pond about half way of the drive along the Kanc. Every time I stop by I hope for a moose to walk into the frame but so far, no luck! This time I was awarded with stunning morning light and a wonderful fall foliage reflection that made for a great abstract autumn impressionist photograph.


After setting up camera and tripod I focused on the reflection and its impressionistic offering. A careful choice of zoom lens and focal lens allowed for an appropriate crop of the image. The polarizing filter boosted contrast and color saturation in the reflection. Aperture in this image was set to f/22 providing a 1/5 of a second exposure time at ISO100. During post processing I removed dust spots, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast, and color saturation before sharpening the final image of the Abstract Autumn Impressionism photography picture.

Good light and happy photo making! Happy Monday, Juergen
