Every October, my camera and I head out for a sail, or two, to capture the fall foliage in the lens. This year, for help, I took a tripod, strapped it down to a cleat, set the lens, focus, timer, and went hunting.
Sailing+fall foliage=elusive target.
As usual, I came back mostly empty-handed. But when I download October sailing photos, despite the lack of the foliage color I'm looking for, I'm usually pleased by something else.
October light in the lens -- that is the prize.
