Autumn colours in the evening sunset.

It's difficult to see in the scanned photo, but this one has sort of a "View-master" look to it. That is, the leaves on the tree, in full sun, are in focus, while the leaves in shadow are out of focus. So, there's a definite depth-of-field there, which gives this photo a 3D effect, like you would see in a View-master slide.

Neat tones..... Nice to see some photos from you again; it's been a while ;) Thought you went back to IP...

Hey, Fizgig! Nope, not going back to IP (in fact, my account there will expire in a couple of days). I've just been busy with other things, out here on the homestead, and haven't done much in the way of photography. Today was the first time, in a long time, that I took to snap a couple of photos. Glad you liked them!

Winter will be hear in short order, so I'll soon be spending more time on-line and hopefully catch up on some of what I've been missing, here on 23.

David, this is so neat. Glad to see you back, yes, autumn is here. I will be posting those pix soon, so pleas visit my post, thanks.

I sure will, Marvin. Looking forward to seeing what you have.

There's some really interesting things one can do with the Lomo'Instant camera and its changeable lenses. In this photo, I used the "portrait" lens, which produced this effect.

Looks a bit threatening, like the tree is about to jump down on you. ;o)
