Fall has so many great attributes going for it, none of which is color and light. The only thing I can think of that is better than fall color is aircraft in front of fall color. I had a marvelous day a couple of weeks ago at Lake Hood PAHL AK doing just that. The wind pushed the pattern so the planes were landing on the water right in front of this smallish patch of color. I shot with the Z400f4.5 cause even though it was a bit tight at the end of the flight, its narrow angle of view was able to isolate the plane in front of that small patch of color. At the same time, it helped eliminate those distracting elements taking the eye away from the fall color. The key to all of this was my positioning of myself. I walked up and down the bank placing myself so when the plane got below the color I was directly opposite so all I saw was the color. I certainly got my steps in but I also captured a number of clicks I really like. It’s a short window of time, but fall is a great background!
