Yellow, Orange and Black

There are a lot of maple trees around my house. Each October the area is ablaze with yellows, oranges and reds. Except this year. This year the reds and oranges were noticeably absent for some reason. The unbroken sea of brilliant yellow in the trees was both novel and beautiful.

Here is a shot of one of the trees I took while experimenting with the Orton effect.

Pretty in Yellow

Moving down to the pond, I at last found a spot of red and orange, floating on the dark water.
