One of the many things I love about Autumn is the spectacular and dramatic late afternoon light.
Yesterday, my husband and I went for a walk at neighboring Rose Tree Park and were treated not only to glorious light, but also really interesting cloud formations. After a little research, I think they were either altocumulus or cirrocumulus clouds. This combination was sure to create beautiful imagery. Unfortunately, I did not have my Nikon D600 with me, so I had to capture what I could with my iPhone 6S.
Photographing in the late afternoon Autumn light can be challenging due to the long shadows. Instead of trying to figure out how to lose our shadows, we decided to have fun with them, and include them in the photos!
Some people find Autumn depressing because everything appears to be “dying” and it means Winter is near. However, being an outdoor photography enthusiast, I appreciate the rich Fall colors, and the warm late afternoon light.
Because I’m a science and nature geek, I’m including information on the Seasons, the Equinox, and the Solstices.
