There is nothing more bracing than a walk on a fine Autumn Day.
I love to walk through the colorful leaves and watch new ones fall from the trees. Then to complete the treat, a hot cup of cocoa to warm you back up.

2 layers of texture applied to an Autumn scene taken Lithia Park in Southern Oregon. I used Photoshop CS6 to combine the layers of texture and also used Topaz Adjust to bring out detail and color in the leaves and trees. Dodge and burn tools used to highlight and shadow areas of the image.

I’m a 65 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
