Muted View

I have been working on tuning my processing of images to match the Olympus E-M5 III camera.  Since it was foggy when I made this image, I used the fog and the naturally dull muted colors of this fall to create this painterly picture.  

By the way, this is a scene many drive by each day on our campus here at Homewood at Plum Creek and they never “see it” because they don’t look.  Those who walk and who are observant should recognize where it is; but I doubt that many do.

The colors of leaves all over the U.S. have been more dull this year.  There are many reasons for this, but in general, when very warm and wet weather extends into mid- and late October, leaves typically go from green to either dull colors or directly to brown.  These conditions are caused by the heating of the earth causing climate changes.  You can find more information about this in a very readable and interesting article by clicking here.
