Creating Images With Mood

Creating Images With Mood

I went out to take some photos yesterday after a strong cold front brought snow showers Friday and strong winds.  Funny how one can look forward to Autumn and the colors it brings and in a fleeting moment it disappears.  I spent a month chasing these colors and fought bad weather most days I attempted.

Yesterday was more of the same but this image I got from Heery Woods south of Clarksville Iowa presented me with this image and I thought it turned it good and presents a moody feeling.

Much Better Than This?

Much Better Than This?

Autumn does not get much better than this picture.  Went out for a drive this morning and ended up in Parkersburg Iowa and a low head dam on Beaver Creek.  I was ecstatic over the reflection of Autumn colors in the creek.  Yep does not get any better than this.  Sadly it will now be short lived and I may be able to eek out another week of colors.

Autumn At Brush Creek Canyon Preserve

Autumn At Brush Creek Canyon Preserve

I have been siding the house the past couple of days and headed over to Brush Creek Canyon Preserve north of Arlington Iowa to check out some fall colors.  I let about 6AM so I could arrive there at around sunrise which at this time of year is 7:15.  Everything went as planned and my goal was to see if Moine Creek was flowing after all the rain the past couple of days.  Moine is a dry creek during the dry summer months and this past summer was drier than normal.  I did not see much flowing more like a trickle which was disappointing but I followed it on down to Brush Creek and was pleasantly surprised.  Below is two of the shots I took while roaming the preserve all alone.

Vibrant October Morning

Vibrant October Morning

Sunrise this morning in Butler county. The color didn’t last long but it was vibrant while it lasted.  This is a 5 shot HDR image with no saturation or vibrancy added to the image.  What a great start to a colorful month.
