Yes it is barely a week since I posted about early autumn in Colorado but things change fast here.  My guess is a decent Colorado autumn averages about 2 weeks, though those weeks can overlap 4 or more between north, central, and southern parts of the state.

My efforts to learn manual aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings on my new Nikon D5200 have been a DISASTER.  Rather than show you 500 examples of good and bad shots (bad and not-as-bad?), knowing you can find 500,000 examples on review sites all over the web, I will attempt to show some of the better shots with only a few bad included.  My main problem?  OVER-exposure.  (But not the two following.)

A little good, bad, ugly:

It’s all about the trees:

f/8 vs f/14, (mid-sized aperture vs. small) other settings the same:  (Scroll down and click View Full Size to do so, click again for super zoom.  Those houses in the center must have some views!)

Wrapping up:

Coming soon: Dog, Dove, and Depth of Field (Caw! Caw!) (Tesla).  Stay tuned.

  1. I absolutely LOVE my iPhone 5….some of the best pictures I’ve ever taken were taken with the built-in camera on my phone. I only wish I had such amazing views to use it on! Great shots!!
