I love the Fall! And photography is also a hobby and passion of mine. I don’t do it much these days because…busy! But my camera is always in my pocket (iPhone 6). So last Sunday walking into church, I saw the tree with it’s bright yellow leaves. My brain goes, “Ok, I gotta capture that Fall beauty.”
I took a shot or two from one angle. It didn’t do justice. Later, I tried again and thought what angle would be better. I thought, get the cross and steeple in the shot. Crop it down to the best composure. And I think I got it.
I shared this photo on Facebook and a lot of people liked it. I think it works well because it’s simple. There’s just a tree and a church. Two objects, one subject. And it’s got three main colors: yellow, white, and blue. Clean and simple.
This picture is also on my instagram; maybe I’ll put it on Flickr. But what I really wanna do is go out soon just to take more Fall pictures.
Something I used to do a lot was go out to just enjoy nature and be intentional about practicing photography. Some people like portraits of people. My favorite subject has always been the grandeur and glory of God’s creation in nature.
So about the Fall. I was thinking why I like Fall more than Spring and the other seasons. Summer and Winter are extremes. Too hot. Too cold. Spring is nice: new life, new beginnings, flowers…
But I like Fall more than Spring because the cool relief from Summer’s heat feels best, and the many vibrant colors of the trees are striking. And my birthday is in October, so Fall is a time of celebration for me. It’s also the prelude to the “most wonderful time of the year,” Christmas!!
So what’s your favorite season!? Feel free to leave a comment below! Thanks.
