365 Photo Project - Day 44 - Fall Winter Spring

Day 44 - Fall Winter Spring

I live in Texas. Weather is weird. On the drive home today I saw a gorgeous patch of trees in front a subdivision with a reddish vegetation growing underneath them. Today was beautiful, bright sun, light breeze, the type of day that makes you wish you had the guts to call in sick. But when I saw this patch of trees, I thought of fall, however, today is February 13, which is still technically winter. It was a gorgeous Fall, Winter, Spring day.

In order to catch the full dynamic range of this photo, to bring out all the colors, I shot 9 individual photos and merged them to HDR to span the full breadth of the beautiful lighting that I saw.
