In a Kashmir Dream

In a Kashmir Dream

When I went to one of my favorite spots in Victoria I suspected that I had missed the peak colours and that too many leaves would be fallen off the trees for getting a worthwhile shot but as it turned out there was one spot where there was a near perfect balance of leaves in the trees versus on the ground and so that gave me some encouragement that I could get a decent pic.

After surveying the scene from every angle I went with this, along and a couple other compositions but I think this is my favorite because this was the only angle where I was able to get the small stream, which was completely carpeted with red leaves, in there.

I then waited for a subtle light to shine through and voila, I think it worked out!
