End of season

Two weeks ago we headed to Frederiksdal skov, a lovely forest just north of Copenhagen, to absorb the bright and warm autumn colors.

For some reason several tree trunks were labeled with this vivid pink spray. We thought it looked pretty cool in the midst of all natural colors..
All portraits were shot with the Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 lens at 1/80s and f/5.6 (or f/7.1 for the image above), ISO 320. We used a very subtle fill flash (Canon 430ex II at low power set manually) to make the model stand out a bit.

We spotted this lonesome tree in the middle of the shades and gray trunks of a pine tree forest. It almost glowed as if it was on fire when the penetrating rays of the sun fell on its leaves.  

To capture the dark mood of the scenery, I underexposed the image by 2,3 stops. Shot at 1/100 sek; f/7.1, ISO 800

We thought that our little son would enjoy the idyllic scenery, but he fell asleep 5 minutes after we got out of the car..and we had to wake him up three hours later, when we had to put him back in the baby car seat again. Anyway, I think all of us enjoyed the trip..
