RED RAW


Life in our world
 is 
in Red Raw
 every colour of the warm side of the rainbow
is surrounding us 
in this case on 
the Raw setting of the camera.


Practice, sampling, fine tuning and 'nope that doesn't work' and 'that's just fine' !


I am still sniffing my way along the trails
along the blazing colourful paths
that will soon be quietened 
to a darker hue
and
a soften whiter presence
in a few weeks time.


So soaking up nature this time of year
is always more than a treat
it's a sensual feast of the colour spectrum.


The last few trees splatter the yellows
so familiar in other parts of the country
and continent
as Jim nears the car.


Hey, Jim!
Wait up !
Don't go too quickly.
I love this place
just smell those pine needles.

    1. Jim is teaching me how to use the RAW setting, boy oh boy, it's going to take some practice and understanding ~~~ meanwhile the fantastic photos slip pass me. I have got to learn and understand this though. I tweaked most of the photos slightly because they were either too dark or just needed some oomph ~~ hope you like them!!

  10. Beautiful! You three amigos enjoy the same things me and hubby do. Plunk me down where I am surrounded by Mother Nature and I am one happy camper. Sophie, you blend in so well with those autumn colours. Must be that gorgeous fur of yours. I will be sad to see this season go, but there's always something new and exciting up ahead. It's all good in the end.

  11. I have done the raw shooting but have gone back to my old jpeg system. It suits me fine.
    The red fall colors are such a treat, that and the sharp smell of ripe cranberries in the forest. I do love the fall time of year!

    1. I know exactly what you mean about RAW ~~ it's interesting to learn and understand the system and then see if it's my cuppa tea!
      Time will tell.
      Now, ripe cranberries in the forest sounds so wonderful ~~~ really could learn to love that ~~ we had cranberries growing in a bog at Lawrencetown Beach, however a hurricane devastated them all and now they are minimal. Maybe in time they will come back!
