Nature Photography – Remembering Autumn

Its the middle of winter and even here in sunny Texas, its cold and wet. On days like this when the weather makes shooting questionable, I like to sit down with a nice cup of tea, open up Lightroom and review some of my images from months past. Its amazing how a little time and distance can change your perspective on the images you thought were not quite up to snuff.

Take this shot for example. I captured this during a walk last fall through the Monument Hill State Historical Site near La Grange, Texas. I rounded a turn in the old road and decided this scene might make a nice shot so I took a few exposures but wasn’t really thrilled by what I saw on the LCD. Now several months later this shot looks much better to me, especially after some cropping and enhancements using Nik’s Color Efex Pro filters. Its also nice to look at some color during these long winter months.
