I love everyone's fall photos. Here are a few of mine from my brand new school. I have been waiting for the leaves to turn so I could photograph the extraordinary view from my school's faculty room. These pictures do not do the scene justice, so please click on them for a better view. (I should have uploaded them in the larger format). The leaves are turning a little, but I think they have a way to go. (This has been one of those weird autumns) I may snap a few pictures next week. I would like to do a painting of the view, but I do not feel like dragging my easel, paints, etc. to school on a Saturday. (I'm getting lazy in my old age). There are some dramatic shadows in the morning that I can't quite capture if I paint on location. I used to be a purist when it came to painting a landscape from life. I am warming up to painting from photos because they capture the moment. I drive to work and see such beautiful lighting that can only be caught by camera. (I will justify it because I taught traditional b&w photography for years). I will play with these different images and try to come up with a good composition. I will probably take out the electrical towers and fences, but I think sometimes they can be interesting additions. Your suggestions are welcome! Happy Halloween everyone!
