Boulder Fall Pictures - Viele Lake & Flatirons
This landscape picture was taken in the fall from the Fairview High School parking lot overlooking the lake. The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) can be seen in the foothills next to the Flatirons. It is a challenge to capture Boulder pictures with fall colors because most of the trees in the foothills are evergreens.
Photographer Tips - Polarizers
When taking scenic pictures of fall colors, often a polarizer can help to bring out the color contrasts. As you can see in this photo, the blues are quite saturated and even though the leaves of the trees are not at the fall peak, they have been drawn out with the polarizer. Some polarizers also provide a warming tint.
Remember that the greatest polarization effect occurs when the sunlight direction is perpendicular to your line of sight; however, it is not always desirable to crank up the maximum effect. Sometime you may just want a little polarization impact. For best results, use a circular polarizer – it is more expensive, but will result in a higher quality shot.
