Autumn Paradox



  1. A universe within a leaf. If you set this up expressly to get this effect then many congratulations. I would never know exactly what to put where to achieve a specific look. The receding swirl into that central brightness does carry the hint of some large event in deep space. The colour distribution is well-balanced too.

  2. Beautiful color and effect. I like John’s description of a universe within a leaf.

  3. This creates a lovely little world all of it’s own. I can imaging this making a very nice small print, mounted into a bigger mount – not sure if light or dark – and then being hung in a hallway to catch a moments attention as people pass and brighten up their day. If you shot for this, doubly well done!

    • I can’t claim to know how these are going to turn out, but experimenting sure beats trailing in and out of the shops with my wife. As I may have said before, I have a pragmatic approach to my photography; a lot of people might put their cameras away when the sun has long since given up any hope of staying above the horizon and curse that they haven’t brought a tripod with them. But I just think “why not try and make something of the camera movement”. I tend to put the resulting images in a folder I’ve named “tripodophobia”.

      This image is one of several I took at a whitewashed wall covered in a virginia creeper with a dramatic range of coloured leaves. This ones a 2.5 second exposure.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment folks.

      • Yes, I can well understand tripodophobia! Although I have a tripod and big camera to put on it, I am usually happier with the little ‘un handheld.

  4. For some reason it occurred to me earlier tonight that my photography is usually of the “hunter gatherer” type. As opposed to the planning and preparation I’d associate with a tripod, which is perhaps more like farming.

  5. Rich colours, speaks to me of cooling moist forest. making something of the camera movement worked well.

  6. Very imaginative. I love the mix of colours and the central bright area keeps my attention whilst the colours swirl around.
