New Opportunities

Posted: October 2, 2016 in Uncategorized
We are all looking for the places that provide new opportunities to shoot macro subjects. In one of the parks I shoot at they are restructuring the water system. They dug out a new canal, and it follows right along the edge of a woods full of Cottonwoods trees. At this time of year in early October in Southeast Michigan, the Cottonwood trees start to lose some early fall leaves.  It’s still a few weeks away before the leaves start to really fall and turn colors, but I found quite a bit of subject matter already. No floating leaves that I liked, but found other comps to shoot.
Here is the new canal.



This group was floating at the edge.



Leaves in the mud.



This is from the area where they laid down the straw with grass seed and mesh. Two leaves fell in perfect position.
