Autumn in New York

We went back to Letchworth State Park for a second day of photography, this time focusing on intimate landscapes rather than the grand landscapes I showed in my last posting. The colors of the leaves remained at their peak, creating brilliant displays of the best the season has to offer. Following are some of the images I created. I hope you enjoy them. If so, feel free to leave comments.

The sun backlighting the yellow leaves created brilliant patterns in the dark woods.
The oranges and yellows of the leaves stood out against the dark tree trunks of the forest
There were fewer birch trees than expected, but the ones we found often provided a dramatic contrast to the darker trunks of other trees
