Photo Of The Day By David Connel
Photo By David Connel
Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Autumn Mirror” by David Connel. Location: Caddo Lake, Texas/Louisiana border.
“This year I chose a unique ecosystem to photograph fall colors,” explains Connel. “Rather than take the stereotypical photos of fall colors in the mountains, I chose to photograph the swamps and bayous of Caddo Lake. This required miles of kayaking among the cypress trees. By choosing small groups of trees as my subject, I could select the perspective and backdrop in my images. Water current and debris made maneuvering the kayak into the proper position difficult. A big thanks to my wife for all the work she did maneuvering our tandem kayak into the proper position to capture my images. Luckily, each day of paddling brought a different set of clouds to use to highlight the colors of the cypress trees. This day also brought calm waters to make excellent reflections.”
Exposure: 1/125 sec, f/10, ISO 250, 20mm.
