October 28th, 2010 – Fall Window
We had one of those uncommon beautiful sunny October days here in Seattle. This image was taken during a photowalk this morning. I was testing out a newly acquired lens; the 645 Mamiya 200mm/f2.8 APO. The bokeh on this lens is very smooth and it is pretty sharp at wide open aperture. I’ve been hoping to find time to get out to surrounding mountainous areas to capture some of the spectacular fall color that’s happening now , but domestic chores have kept me closer to home lately. We do have some urban areas that are looking pretty nice too so I headed out for a short trip to an old stomping ground to see what I could find. I liked the way the sun illuminated this edge of the tree and the fall colors in the background.
