The Flavors of Autumn

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 18 September 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Pumpkins lined up for purchase at the apple farm near our daughter's home in Vermont. Pumpkins are a true flavor of Autumn in the New England states and everywhere, really.....This one right in the front (on the right) was "the Pumpkin of my eye" ;-) ...This image was captured in late September, 2009 in Essex, Vermont.

OLYMPUS E-510 1/125 second F/4.0 ISO 100 11 mm

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire

Ooh I love pumpkins, we used to see this sight in the south of England but it is too cold up here. I grow a few in our poly tunnel. Their bright colour and size always amaze me. That one front, right is a beauty

This orange perspective is so cool, seems a new game for Halloween, take the pumpkins and throw them as far as you can... if you can ;)

Excellent framing on this vibrant shot, Denny. The colors really pop and the setting is so pretty.

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

These colors are fabulous! Nothing gets me in the mood for the holidays like a bright orange pumpkin!

franz from Baden, Austria

the color of these pumpkins alone is worth looking at them - let alone their taste ... now's the time for pumpkin soup (5*) and pumpking goulash again - we're not so much into pumpkin pie over here ...

A lovely display in orange and greens.

Beautiful! Haven't seen too many pumpkins around here yet, but am looking forward to it. My favorite time of year!

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

What fantastic oranges and greens! I can't believe you guys already have pumpkins for sale up there. Great shot Denny!

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Just went back and saw this was shot in September '09, but still, that seems really early.

19 Sep 2011 2:34am

@Jason Politte: Yep, it was late September - I did'nt look at the exif but I know it was around the 25th or so because it was when we were visiting Amy (following our '09 trip to Acadia) and and I got a call back to work while we were at Amy's in Vermont ;-) Thanks Jason...

Fabulous colours and composition, Denny! Very compelling image with the orange and green together. Couldn't ask for a more iconic Autumn image.

Oh, it's that time of year. I really like the pov here, and the bright colors, too.

Superb composition with this stunning color. Great image!

The colors are wonderful Denny! I was just looking at the aspens...they are starting to turn yellow...the mountain mahogany popped out this morning with bright red leaves...it’s that time of year! Great capture!

Beautiful colors captured here with a great PoV. This PoV gives this composition nice depth.

That's just wonderful! I love the perspective and long fade into the distance. I am a huge pumpkin fan and love the season for all the wonderful orange.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Good perspective and composition with this one, the colours speak for themselves. Pumpkins only find their way into the UK for Hallow'een essentially, I don't think we've quite got the taste for them yet.

What wonderful color!
