Who says autumn images need to be in color? This is the Blair Bridge in Campton, NH, and my visit here a few weeks ago was a bit early for peak fall color. In addition, the fog was quite thick when I arrived just after sunrise, and I immediately knew I wanted a B&W image from this scene. Fog can look great in a color photo, but I think it adds even more mood to a monochrome image instead. An exposure of 0.7 seconds gave me a little motion in the water without having too much movement in the leaves and trees, and it was a simple conversion in Lightroom CC.
It was an amazing morning, and I can still feel the chill in the air and hear the sounds of the river. The leaves are now mostly gone, and although it’s been unseasonably warm and pleasant this week, I already miss the fall.
