Photographer's Note

the autumn in New England is somewhat similar to the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park - you have to see to believe the riot of colours. many of those who have never seen New England's forests on an overcast autumn day take one look at a photo like this, wince and collectively go "booooo, this is photoshop". it's not.

about the photo: park around the Quabbin Reservoir is one of our favourite "hunting grounds", and that's where we were headed last Sunday. the forecast was for a beautiful sunny day, but, needless to say, whoever wrote that forecast, was wrong. the sky was mostly overcast with brief moments of sunlight during which a large number of photographers were seen running in all directions. I, for once, decided to try a landscape without a sky, because I noticed that I tend to rely on the sky to make the photo appealing, and wanted to see if I could to with no sky at all. and this is what I got, I was attracted by both the colours and the "collection of triangles".

RAW, ISO 250, 150mm focal length, spot metering.
