The sumac fall fate, originally uploaded by seyDoggy.
Where I live, in the Kitchener Waterloo area, we have a lot of sumacs that make for quite a show in the fall when their leaves turn a deep red. I’ve never had much luck shooting the tree as a whole, there is something about the red saturation that I am never able to capture all that well. But in this case I was able to isolate a few leaves that were browning and withering in a way that appealed to me.
This was taken on Marguerite Ormston Trailway while walking with my daughter. Taken with a Sony DSLR-A100, with a Sigma EX 28-70mm f2.8 at an effective focal length of 105mm.
