Today’s featured photo of the day! October’s feature is: Fall Color/Landscapes

For the month of October I am featuring fall color and landscapes photography as the style. For today, I am posting a nice shot of another set of colorful trees in a latent state of fall near Hambone Lake in the Cook County forest preserves near Palos Heights in Illinois. How colorful. Date – October 1981.

Tree 3_Hambone Lake__Konica Color

Photo taken with a Nikon EM camera through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=polarizer, Aperture=16 f/stop, shutter-speed 1/125th second, loaded with Konica ISO (ASA) 100 Color 135-20 Negative Film processed with C-41 Processing Chemicals, and a Type C Print using the RA-4 enlargement paper process, onto a 4X6″ semi-gloss print.

TIP:  50 mm lenses while taking landscapes makes you physically back up too far to be able to get a nice shot, being actual size with the lens. It is much easier using a wide angle lens that does not fish-eye the shot.

Enjoy, and see you tomorrow with another fine fall color and/or landscape photograph!!
