Late fall is my favorite time for making fall foliage motion abstracts. The muted colors make for slightly less garish color blurs. Yet at the same time, the leafless backgrounds help provide contrast and make the remaining color stand out.

Here is a small collection of late fall abstracts taken in the Sleepy Hollow, NY area on Rockefeller State Park Preserve land and adjacent Rockefeller Family land. In the next post, I'll have a few more to share and talk a little bit about the technique.
