While out and about in New England I am always looking for beautiful reflections of fall foliage in local lakes or rivers. No difference during this years' New England fall foliage season. Cruising along Massachusetts Route 9 often rewards beautiful Photo Possibilities that are easy and conveniently can be accessed. Southborough has an array of small interconnecting lakes where I stopped that morning. Upon arrival I determined my composition and then patiently waited for the early morning light to fire up the autumn colors. I equipped may camera lens with a polarizing filter to cut out glare and boost colors and hand-held a split neutral density filter to balance the bright light on the trees against the darker foreground of the reflection and leaves immediately in front of me.
Good light and happy photo making!
