Autumn's last gasp

I love photographing nature towards the end of autumn when the colors have lost their early showy brilliance and have begun settling into shades of muted, decaying browns.  I spotted these leaves on a bike ride along the Hudson River and went back to photograph them the next day with a Nikon D600 and 60mm macro lens.  For the most part, I used the lens at a wide open aperture to achieve a very shallow depth of field.  An overcast day helped tame the colors with a lower contrast.

  1. Natural photography in the autumn season is really great feeling it feels like as paradise different varieties of leave colors are amazing but the end of the Autumn season is really new theme for photography because all the leaves and other flowers lost their natural color and it looks really different
