Washington, Connecticut

This cluster of trees at the edge of the steep river bank above the Shepaug, at the start of its "clamshell" section in the main area of Steep Rock Preserve, was backlit and glowing in the hazy mid afternoon light yesterday. I wanted to get a sense of being surrounded by the bright leaves and as I looked for the right camera position I found that it was easiest to get by shooting with the GX7 at waist level, Rollie-style, using the LCD flipped up 90° for viewing. Almost all the other hardwoods are bare at this point, very close to the end of the autumn picture season.

Gorgeous image - makes me miss those last days of fall, bursts of color before the graying begins.
