Fall in Virginia

31 10 2010

Since I haven’t been able to get my bounty of fall photos this year, I’ve made a collage of my favorite images from the past three years. These were all shot in various parts of Virginia, including my own neighborhood. Enjoy!

Ah, that September light…

15 09 2010

Every fall, I am sadly aware that there will be less and less flowers blooming for me to capture (and in case you hadn’t noticed, it is a passion for me), but the light is always exquisite when I do find a subject to immortalize in pixels. I was drawn to this Mallow flower mostly because of the light behind it, which with a large aperture, morphed into this dreamy soft background with lovely bursts of chartreuse and the rusty browns that fall brings. I’m sure this flower is in the Mallow/Hibiscus family; I just don’t know what variety it is. Anyone?

That perfect light

17 11 2007

Fall has finally come to northern Virginia, albeit much later than normal. Today the light was so beautiful that I just had to get out and shoot some foliage around my neighborhood. Looking at these photos, I find it hard to believe that this area is just off the beltway and not in the Vermont countryside!
