The brown period
I’ve been dazzling you with great autumn color the past few posts and now, unfortunately (for some, I imagine). it’s time to tone it down a bit. We are now entering the “brown period” of autumn, where all of the fallen leaves lose all of their color, the soil is almost always muddy, and the only color is the blue of the sky on that rare clear day.
I happen to like this time of year for black and white photography. The bare limbs of the trees are way more interesting and the dark textures of soggy ground work in my favor. It’s easier to spot old cars or other interesting subjects normally hidden in the weeds when driving around the countryside and the bold clouds can make a landscape even more dramatic.
But enough about me. Here’s a “brown” photo.
