Autumn Foliage (Napa Valley, CA and Macro)

It is autumn here in California! I recently took a trip to Napa Valley and shot some autumn foliage there. Also for the second part of this blog post, I got some more macro autumn foliage shots! Remember that blog post I posted a while back? I flattened those leaves out in hopes of getting better shots. Sadly the yellow leaf crumbled, but the red leaf stayed intact. I will also show you the macro photos of the red leaf today.

I first start off with the photos I shot in Napa Valley. This was shot on Zinfandel Lane in St. Helena, CA. This was probably the best shot I got that day. They lighting wasn't that good that day as it was cloudy, but the clouds did clear up for a short while which is when I shot this photo.

Another photo I shot near where I shot the photo above. This was shot on Zinfandel Lane in St. Helena, CA. This was actually the 1st photo I took and the one above was the 2nd. I rearranged them because I thought the 2nd one I took was the best one for this trip.

There was this historic railroad car in Rutherford, CA. I shot 2 photos of it. This photo was shot near State Route 128.

Now I move onto the autumn foliage macro. Since I only had 1 good leaf, I only shot one photo, but processed it differently a few times. 

Here is a black and white process of the photo.
