I took a quick trip to Cheshire to see my friend Harold this afternoon. On my way back I detoured to Mt. Carmel Avenue. There’s a nondescript highway bridge over the Mill River right at the foot of Sleeping Giant Mountain. I had wanted to take some photos there but somehow the time was never right.
I took a few dozens pictures and was walking back to my car when I realized I’d set the camera wrong! I walked back and took this one, facing south.
This photo (here’s a larger version) is a 3-shot HDR. It was taken in aperture priority with the exposure centered 2-f/stops darker than what was indicated. Without that the blue sky would have been totally washed out.
There are plenty of bare trees now. This was probably the last good leaf peeping weekend.
