Glynwood – Fall colors

As I write this all of the leaves have fallen from the trees. Although it’s technically not yet Winter it certainly feels like it. A couple of days ago we had seven inches of snow! It has now mostly melted, but it’s still cold and grey.

A little over a month ago (when this picture was taken) it was completely different.

Glynwood – The boat house

I found the area around the boathouse to be particularly picturesque.

The picture below illustrates a problem I had a number of times with this particular camera/lens combination: too narrow depth of field. With the other cameras I use the trees in the background would have been in focus. However, it seems that a full frame (my first and so far only) camera with a fast (f 1.8) 50mm lens did not allow the required depth of field. I’ll have to bear this in mind in future: either stop down more, or use a wider lens.
