Fantastic Five: Autumn Nature Prints
Now, I know I’ve been talking about this particular season quite a bit lately on Fantastic Five, but I can’t help it. Its my favorite time of year. The leaves are changing, the temperatures are dropping so its not too hot, and everything looks so beautiful.
Its a different kind of beauty though, of course, especially when it comes to nature. There’s a lot less color than the spring and summer months, very few flowers, and often more freshly fallen leaves on the ground than in the trees. But, its beautiful none the less.
So, today’s Fantastic Five is dedicated to that more subtle beauty of autumn, those rich browns, mustard yellows, and those hints of red and orange, through the eyes of a camera man (or woman): fall photographic prints. These are my my picks…
1. Under the Big Sky by Jude Mcconkey $55: The lonesome house in this breathtaking limited edition print from Jude Mcconkey, is enveloped by its surroundings. A mere spec amongst the great outdoors. And a beautiful capture by the artist.
2. Against the Grain 8×10 Print by Eye Shutter to Think $18: The golden grain and soft light in this photograph looks more like it was taken in the mountains than a field in Florida, just miles from where I grew up. But that’s the beauty of photography isn’t it? You just never can tell.
3. Autumn in the Park by Lesley McLelland $20: And if this photo doesn’t scream fall to you, I don’t know what does. This is exactly the beauty I am talking about. Leaves changing color and scattering all over the earth floor.
4. Golden Leaves Canvas Print by Photographic Passions $250.20: Here you can see those beautiful leaves again, but they are much more vibrant in this piece. The out of focus image almost feels like a painting, and because this photo is actually printed on canvas, you’ll leave your friends guessing.
5. Cloud Watching 8×8 Print by Urban Pink Photography $30: And finally, taken while driving down a country road, Urban Pink captures the perfect photo to represent fall, although it was (strangely) shot in the summer. Again, photography can really play tricks on you, huh? Love the composition.
