This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Open Topic.
I chose this photo because it sums up this autumn for me. This has been a good autumn for colour but with weather or locations that have hindered me getting shots.
This tree was almost glowing in the half light of dawn on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. Unfortunately it’s location is such that it was impossible to photograph the whole tree without including an ugly, distracting background.
So once the sun came up I put the telephoto zoom on the camera and started isolating sections of colour where I could control the background.
