Congratulations to Gregg B. for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 12 votes - View Previous Winners


This summer I was exhibiting my work at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, so I didn't (and couldn't) go anywhere shoot. I think it's been over 3 months now since I had a camera in my hand. But, this last weekend I was finally able to go to the Sierra Nevada and shoot some fall colors. The place looked great and colors were peaking (at least in some areas). I was mostly after intimate kind of shots (leaves and branches etc.) and I found a few amazing trees in Aspendale for that. But, I also shot some easy accessible landscape locations (yes, I did go to the North Lake and it was crowded there).
Since I didn't have any clouds (or very few) I just burned the sky quite a bit to make the snow stand out. It did snow in the mountains (specially northern part of the SN, around Mammoth mountains). They all looked (and still do) fantastic with the snow and fall colors around them. If you do decide to go, go now. This weekend might be the last chance to get some colors (of aspen trees at least, others will probably change colors in early November). Oh, and the air quality is very good now...

Gregg, I always look forward to seeing your images. Love the way you PP and compose your images. I am headed there on Friday and hopefully will get to see some colors. Thanks

Amazing set of fall pictures. What settings you use to shoot the leaves?

Thanks John. I used the new (and amazing IMO) Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 Z lens. I set it to f/2.8 to get the background blurred. There was no wind whatsoever so I set my camera to ISO 64. Shutter speed was slow, maybe a sec or so....

There are a lot of spots with aspen trees in Sierra Nevada. Check Aspendale as an example. No hike is required either....
