Today’s post features another focus-stacked image of the recent fall colors at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, in the Missouri Ozarks. As leaf colors began changing colors, it was not unusual to run across a tree with multi-colored leaves, forming a natural kaleidoscope of colors:
Today’s post features a panorama that I made during one of my fall color hikes at the Lake of the Ozarks. On this day, I got off the main trail and walked through some woods, until it opened up with this scene:
Like I said previously, this is one of the best years for fall colors at the Lake of the Ozarks that I have seen!
Today’s post features a couple of focus-stacked images I captured last week during peak fall colors around the Lake of the Ozarks, in south-central Missouri.
Focus-stacking is a technique I really like to employ when capturing close-up images, or macro images. Using a shallow depth of field, I capture multiple images, varying the focusing point on the subject, with each image captured. Then using focus-stacking software (I use HeliconFocus), I stitch all images together. This results in an image that has more depth in focus, while still maintaining a good, out-of-focus background to the image.
Both of today’s images were captured along a trail in Ha Ha Tonka State Park, located on the southern edge of the Lake of the Ozarks:
And by moving the tripod just a foot or so, this next image was captured, that gives a little different mood to the scene:
Over the past few days I have been photographing the changing fall colors at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, in the Missouri Ozarks. Here are a few of the overall landscape images I have collected. In another post, I will feature some individual and small grouping of leaves. This time of year is always so magical as one hikes the Missouri Ozarks!
Here are a few of my favorite images:
Although nice colors were around when these images were captured, peak color was not here for a few more days. Stay tuned for more fall color images from the area.
