INTRODUCTION

This photography adventure had us heading back to the Mount Macedon Region, Victoria – Australia.  Being the last days of Autumn, I hoped to capture some images of trees displaying autumn coloured leaves.  Fortunately, we found Alton Road which offered a beautiful display of trees lining its course.  Here we stopped and I took the opportunity to spend some time photographing colourful Autumn leaves close up!  It was wonderful to get out-and-about again and experience this lovely region.

The above image of beautiful golden-yellow autumn leaves appear like dancing ballerina’s balancing in mid air…

Some beautiful autumn coloured leaves silhouetted against a darken forest like tree garden.

  • Focal Length 29mm
  • ISO 80

  • Lens FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3OSS

A view from the road of spindly trees and a scattering of coloured autumn leaves created an interesting abstract image.  I decided to make this into a monochrome image because the backlighting help detail the trees well.

  • Focal Length 80mm
  • ISO 80
  • Camera Make Sony

The star of this image is the Autumn leaves as they held tight to their spindly dark stems.

  • Focal Length 144 mm
  • ISO 80
  • Camera Make Sony

Here I liked the contrast of the green gum leaves, the tree bark and the yellow-green Autumn leaves.

  • Focal Length 52 mm
  • ISO 80

I loved how the colourful Autumn leaves appeared to cascade down towards the ground.

 

CONCLUSION

Photography is just another way to improve one’s sense of wellbeing and at the same time – be creative. Being out-and-about experiencing the natural wonders of the world and the creatures it inhabits is a real privilege for sure. It really does rejuvenate the body and soul.
