Picturing A Yellow Fall Tree

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing that great shot! I also have a love for photography. I had my husband gift me a DSLR for a Xmas gift a couple years ago. Before our daughter was born. A hobby for me to interact with other moms and snap shots for people. I then fell in love with capturing what my own eye would see.
    Of course the regular portrait sessions became normal. But I, like you haven’t taken much lately. Not like I used too. I am hoping to get out more this season, capture some color with my Nikon and share.
    As far as favorite season, it used to be summer. Then I got older and realized running around in a two piece and drinking all day was no longer an option. So, summer became just, hot. Lol
    My love for fall started. The color changes of course. But it’s the crisp morning air, the hot coco that actually tastes 1000 x’s better because it’s chilly, the scarves I get to add as a accessory and of course all of the outside fun that comes with cool breeze and loads of laughs!
    Summer just never offered what fall does… or perhaps it was just to hot for me to think straight.. ha.

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, glad you like my photo. I guess maybe I liked Summer way more as a kid because no school! But by late high school, Fall was it. That’s great your husband got you a DSLR. I got a Nikon D60 for my wife many years ago and it still works be we hardly ever use it because of being busy and just always having a cameraphone for snapshots. And yes, totally agree on the hot beverages during cool seasons. I’ve been lovin my coffee more lately. Enjoy! 😁
