I took this photo at South Mountain Reservation’s Fairy Trail during the peak of Fall Foliage in New Jersey. I used HDR to ensure that the sky stayed blue and to enhance the beautiful autumn palette. Taken with my favorite landscape photography lens, the Canon RF 14-35, this photo is a favorite of mine. My daughter and I both enjoy going for walks on the Fairy Trail area of South Mountain, and we always find ourselves down by the Rahway River where I took this photo. I can’t help but think that the South Mountain Conservancy (who maintain the mountain) strategically placed these rocks. They look great, but that’s also what makes them feel a bit constructed. South Mountain is a very well-maintained place and there’s nothing wrong with dressing things up a bit.
