Autumn Veil | ISO – 100 | 60 mm | 1/350 sec @ f/5.6 | Edited with Topaz Lens Effects (Click on the image for a better view)
Pardon me for posting another Autumn landscape, but I was going through some photos that I took last Fall and I realized there are a few that had some potential. This is a shot of Village Tremblant, which was taken as I was standing at the Summit.
You must know that the fog on this image was added during post, since my purchase of the Topaz Bundle some time ago, I haven’t had the chance to play with Topaz Lens Effects and I thought this was a good candidate. I knew I wanted to add “veil” to the landscape, so, after the adjustments on Lightroom 4, I fired up Topaz Lens Effects in Photoshop and added the “Fog” effects” to the water and a little bit to the ground.
This was the original image after Lightroom 4. As you can see, the landscape was pretty clear with no fog in sight. I do like the original, but I’m sure a little creativity never hurts anyone.
Surely, I am not alone in thinking that Autumn is the best season ever! The dramatic change from the lush green landscape to the brilliant hues that is gold, yellow and red is enough reason to love the season.
I cannot believe we’re in December already. You know what that means, right? Winter is just around the corner. We had a taste of ol’ man winter just a few days ago, I’m so not ready for it yet…so please allow me to feast on the remaining colors of Fall.

I had an irresistible urge to get up early last Saturday. The goal was to head to the park before the sun rises to capture some macro shots of the morning dew on the grass. Well, when I got to the park, the sun was starting to rise, and the ground was bone dry, no morning dew in sight! I walked around more, went closer to the river hoping to find some…none…nada!
I wasn’t going to leave the park without shooting anything, so I figured, I’d have some fun capturing the remaining traces of Fall.
