Late Fall Afternoon on Our Dock

I went down to our dock late this afternoon to begin winterizing our boat, because it stays on the lake throughout the winter.   It was a gorgeous fall afternoon with unusually high temperatures in the lower 70s, and it was just too nice to be inside. I brought along my camera just in case I saw something worth photographing while on the dock, and there was.

As the sun began setting, its golden light illuminated the remaining leaves on the trees across the cove from our dock. It made the orange leaves glow and turned the brown leaves orange. Autumn’s weather and beautiful colors are refreshing and invigorating.

Below is another image from our dock looking across a very large rock that protrudes out of the lake. Because of its close proximity to our dock, I occasionally use the hooks in it to tie boat lines.

Finally, I photographed some of the leaves floating on the lake. This one caught my attention because of the water that was sitting on it, and because the orange color of the leaf is in direct contrast to the dark blue of the lake.

All of the above images were shot with a Nikon D700 at high ISO settings (1600, 6400 and 1600, respectively), because I was hand-holding the camera, and the light was relatively low requiring a slow shutter speed.
