For as much as I love black and white in all its moods and personalities, sometimes I just need color. Shot in a nature preserve near home, this view was shot in the fall . While fall’s palette is a favorite of mine, it was more fun to play with the hue and saturation sliders. At first ,the colors were dreamy like Giverney in spring, but as they grew bolder so did I.Dramatic color heightens the senses and draws us in. Visiting this garden even for a short time provided an escape and change of scene, a welcome respite as days grow shorter and leaves fade to brown. Finding the color in each moment rejuvenates us.
