This Crimson King maple is in our yard and it's foliage has put on it's bright fall coat. While this tree is pretty and the leaves are lovely to view, the real show is on the ground. That's right, take a walk through the leave that have already fallen off of the tree and see what the lens will find.
The subtle colors and textures in the leaves are truly a show all by themselves. You can even crop them to a square image like these, print them, frame them, and use them as fall decor in your home.
Just add water. There is nothing like a little rain to intensify the colors of any foliage. Cloudy skies and a little mist are a photographers best friends when capturing detail images of Autumn.
Back the lens up just a bit and you get a collage that only nature could paint. So, the next time your out on your fall foliage tour, don't forget to look down. There is a show on the ground that you might be missing. Happy Ruby Tuesday.
