Out on our morning walk Lexi and I are starting to see the quick progression of fall colors in Shunga Park. The oaks are the most dominant tree in the area we walk and they still haven’t made much of a color change, some of the inner leaves have begun and the over all colors of the hardwoods have started to lighten up, they are always the last to change and the longest to hold on to their leaves. This shot is of a small tree, looks like sycamore, just along the walking trail that I had to stop at and pull out the G11 (wow I’m going to like this camera), shot in aperture priority and set to macro mode I was able to get in close enough to concentrate on just the section I wanted.
