“Autumn doesn’t sparkle any more than this. The high backlighting glints off the foliage, and the colors are more vivid when mixed with evergreens. This is definitely fall light. It’s surprising how much the lower sun angle affects things. This is Crystal Lake at Eaton Center. It’s a segment of a larger panorama that includes the famous ‘Little White Church’ there. I’m working on an idea for the whole thing, but in the meantime I really liked the composition of this point and the steep hill meeting it from the other direction. Among all the detail work I do, I love getting to just play with color and shape, light and dark patterns, without the encumbrance of having to render some element in exact shape and perspective. If i don’t get one of these trees just like it is, who’s going to know or complain! It’s my little vacation!” – Peter Ferber
