Autumn Gold

Autumn is now in full flow and it really is my favourite time of the year for photography. The Autumn light in Ireland is beautiful. The slow change of the seasons starts to bring a warm and golden light to the country as the sun is lower and lower in the sky. Throughout the season this effect becomes more and more profound. Combined with the colours this can make for some great Photography.

The city trees are starting to turn form the rich summer green to the beautiful gold of Autumn. Not only are the trees changing, but the light is too. I love the Autumn light. Being relatively far north here in Ireland, the Autumn and winter months bring a lower sun which gives it a warmer colour and longer, more dramatic shadows. The sky seems a richer shade of blue too.

These shots were captured recently on a random photo walk around Dublin city. They were taken with my trusty Nikon D700 and 28-300mm lens. Processing was done in Capture One, and I really liked how it brought out the colour of the shots. I didn’t do a huge amount to them either.

Speaking of Autumn, in case you missed it, I’m having an Autumn sale on some of my Lightroom presets, with a number of my preset packs, including Landscape Gold, on sale for half price. You can see all of the on-sale items on my store.

On another Autumn related topic, here’s another one of my favourite set of Autumn images from a few years ago. These were taken on a Sony A6000 with Canon lenses.
