WARREN CONNECTICUT – “Winter is icumen in” to quote Ezra Pond’s parody of the Cuckoo Song. A gray, raw day here.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – It was beautiful here today with soft light taking the edge off of the colorful Fall landscape. I took the opportunity to get close to the landscape, shooting wide with my Leica Monochrom. One technique that I’m exploring is shooting handheld in this relatively poor light at f16 to permit deep depth of field, and compensating with high ISO (2,400), which is very much against the grain for landscape, but works well with the Monochrom.

On this day two years ago (day 1478): Late fall in CT. So . . . two years ago I was shooting very similar subject to those that I am shooting today. Not surprising given the local deciduous landscape.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – A hectic weekend of board meeting preparation. I just barely had time to get my image for the day, which is a sad, neglected-looking little thing. Even my Leica Monochrom needs a little guidance to produce a good image.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – I got some good light on the fall foliage, which as usual is reproduced here in black and white because I shoot in black and white – with my Leica Monochrom camera and the wonderful Carl Zeiss 15mm ZM lens.

WAAREN CONNECTICUT – I strapped my 1945 Carl Zeiss Sonnar lens onto my Leica Monochrom today and went out into the blazing fall landscape shooting . . . black and white of course. This is a remarkable lens that renders the Fall light beautifully, providing greater transparency into shadows than a modern lens, and slightly diffused highlights.
