Autumn Reflected

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 5 November 2020 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Spotted at the Blackwell Forest Preserve on Butterfield Road in Warrenville, Illinois, autumn is reflected off of Silver Lake. This is a scenic area with nine miles of trails, picnic pavilions/shelters, fishing and boat rentals, archery ranges, camping, snow tubing and more. This was our first visit here and we were totally surprised by the autumn colors and scenery we saw.

A fellow Aminus3 member, Anna Cherer, once recommended that I not always center my images and after I took this photo, I realized that is exactly what I did. So I cropped some of the water at the bottom of the frame.

Photo captured October 24, 2020.

NIKON D7000 1/1000 second F/5.6 ISO 250 27 mm (35mm equiv.)
