Trees were trying out their new fall colors a week ago Sunday, and I drove over to Schoepfle Garden to see what I could see there. In the comments section of the last post I confessed that I have a hard time making what I consider real landscape photographs. By “real” I mean ones with breadth and depth—panoramas. I’m more comfortable taking tighter shots. As usual, I was disappointed in last week’s download of photos taken with the wide-angle end of my zoom lens. To be surrounded by beauty and feel inadequate to convey it is distressing. But after watching an Alexander Kunz video, I went back—filled with hope—to several of my discards to see if I could improve them. I found I could. They’re still not the quality of landscape photographs I would like to make, but I hope that they display some of the beauty at Schoepfle. Other wider-angle photos were not salvageable except as cropped images. Taken together I hope these photographs convey the reason for the pleasure of a late-afternoon walk through northern Ohio woods.
