Red And Yellow, Swain County, NC - 2013
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
Sweeping vistas of Fall foliage are nice, but I also like to zoom in on smaller, more detailed portions of the colorful forests. You can look for patterns and abstracts by concentrating on tighter shots. I found this single maple with red leaves surrounded by other maples and ashes with yellow leaves along a portion of Wayah Road in Swain county. I thought the contrast was pretty with the rough, grey tree trunks in the foreground. Sometimes I just scan back and forth in my viewfinder until I see a pattern that works.
