Blueberry Flame: For Assignment52 "October Colours " and AAW "Gold Rush."

It was officially chilly this morning! Definitely fall weather in the air. I took advantage of my pretty blueberry leaves for this shot, backlighting them with the morning sun just as it broke above the tree line.


In PP, just some contrast adjustments, blue saturation and a crop.

    Lovely minimalist capture. It almost appears to be dancing to welcome the sun!
  • Wiley C 2y

    I'm always a fan of the sole subject photo. You caught some nice reddish hues.

    Lovely! I wonder how it would look on a diagonal, corner to corner?
  • Kristi DS 2y

    Scoutdogs (Chris) It'd look something like this. ;) A shot I took at a different time of day the day before.

    I like them both! What a wonderful palate of colours with the strong blue and reds and a halo of yellow on top. I never knew blueberries changed like that.

    Very warm feel, good job.
