Autumn Leaves All Around...Kirkstall Abbey

2012-10-25 2

In terms of photography, Autumn is my favorite season, the colors are beautiful, the light is hazy, and all the places that seem so familiar to you seem to look different, more magical perhaps.

Aside from enjoying the bright days where the sun is shining and the leaves are glowing, I also love the misty days when the light is low and the skies seem murky, but the colors still seem to hold their own and stand out against all the greys.

Kirkstall Abbey is a perfect location that looks wonderful in any season, but it particularly holds its own in Autumn, the atmosphere increases and the ruins looks gritty in their surroundings.

I actually took these photos as an experiment with light and depth of field with f stops, and I’m really pleased with how they turned out. I was surprised that the colors seemed so bright even though the day was pretty dull, and I used an expired film, but I think that this is a testament to the leaves themselves and how gorgeous they were.

Even though I take a lot of photos around the abbey, I think these are my favorite that I’ve taken with film as they capture the abbey when its empty and not many people are around or chose to see the abbey this way. They also capture the vastness of the space and how empty it seems when the trees are half bare and the mist encloses you.
