Well, it has been quite a while since I posted a picture – too wrapped up in other projects. Where I live, we have quickly transitioned from a beautiful long dry summer into the cool, grey days of autumn. Although the fall colours are beautiful, as they always are, I still needed something to brighten my day from the frequent rain we’ve been having. It has also been quite some time since I’ve posted a still-life photo, so when I came across this brilliant, vibrant still life, I immediately knew that it was just what I was seeking for my next post. One sees many staged still life pictures based around the harvest and autumn themes this time of the year, however this one is a little different. The mix of colourful flowers and green foliage highlighted by filtered sunlight combine with the brilliant orange pumpkins to create a vivid autumn scene that captures the essence of fall, yet doesn’t leave out the beauty of summer. The photo itself is quite simple, but the composition and lighting all work well together to create an image that ‘pops’.
