Halloween is less than a week away but here the guests are already arriving. it looks like its going to be quite a bash. In the next few days I will be publishing some images of some of the distinguished guests.
Just before getting in the car in the Killarney provincial park I saw this still life of leaves and fungus. I made a couple of pictures but I thought the colours were a little too strong so I reduced colour, which placed more emphasize on the rich textures.
Yesterday we made a Fall colour trip to Killarney. It was a magnificent day and the colours were certainly at their peek and ever since the park has been made famous by the Group of Seven, the area has been immortalized by numerous artists and of course photographers. I took this picture on the shore of Lake George but I simply wanted to have another colourful Fall image. The clouds, the reflections and the colours reminded me of some of the work by the very popular American illustrator and painter Maxfield Parrish, who worked in the early and middle of the twentieth century.
It rained today and of course every photographer knows that the rain will really intensify the colours. Walking in the garden, which is preparing itself for the Winter, I made a series of images of the decaying plants. It simply was a richness of colour and patterns forming some beautiful abstract compositions.
