Autumn Light…

by on Aug.20, 2016, under Life, Photography

Each year I usually like to get out and shoot some autumn colour when it’s peak time here in Sydney. There’s not actually a great deal of autumn colour in Sydney itself. There are a few good locations for photography in and around Sydney. The best spots in our local area however are up in the Blue Mountains at places like Mount Wilson. It’s always a very popular spot for photographers and you have to get up there very early in the morning (read before sunrise). If you are lucky enough to be there on those few days when the leaves are in their peak and still on the trees you can get some magnificent images.

We’d actually missed most of the autumn prime being overseas (in Japan) during the peak time. So this year I didn’t get out to shoot any autumn colour at all.

I was however fortunate to be in this right place at exactly the right time. It’s actually on the grounds of the school my two elder daughters attend. We were waiting with my youngest daughter for an event there.

It was late in the afternoon when I saw these fantastic trees being lit up by the later afternoon light. If I could just place my daughter in the right spot where she’d be lit up as well with the epic 70-200 shooting wide open…

Sometimes the autumnal gods do shine their light upon me…
