Autumn leaves form a carpet around the Hazel in our back garden; 30 Oct 2009.

Used away from the horizontal, the fisheye lens has given the whole photo the appearance of showing an elevated ridge in the ground.  Back beyond the Hazel’s trunks, the patches of green lawn appear to be sloping down to either side.  And the nearest leaves seem to be bulging up towards the camera, and to be swirling in a circular fashion – which is an effect I like.

Technique: D700 with Sigma 15mm full frame fisheye; 800 ISO.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    That’s a fun way to use the fisheye, Adrian!


  2. This is beautiful, bud! I noticed the swirl first thing! The colors are fabulous. I hope we have some color here in the south. Not sure what it will be like in autumn. We’ll find out soon enough. Palm trees don’t change pretty colors so I’m counting on the other trees.
    Nice effect!

      Thanks, bud, glad it gets to you! Not sure what sort of palm trees you have, but I love the rattling of dry palm leaves – something from long ago and far away for me. Oh yes, I think I saw mention of bad weather not too far south of you – in ?Mississippi??? Hope it doesn’t come up in your direction! ATP xxxXXX!!!

      Heather, thank you very much, and thank you too for following my blog – I hope you will enjoy my pictures. I know just what you mean about bad and negative thoughts intruding upon Life, they occur all too easily. I hope that photography lifts you, if only a bit. Adrian 🙂
