Autumn, Close Up

The challenge this week from the Lens Artists is about filling the frame. Patti encourages us to get close enough to our subject to really see the details. This is something I’ve always tended to do, so I love this challenge!

The fall colors are just starting to appear now where I live. These are pictures I took last year, after fall really got going. I wasn’t tempted by panoramas of hillsides washed with color. Instead, I got up close and personal with autumn’s beauty.
