.The trees are tallish in this stretch of my daily commute. The amber rays from the setting sun broke through a gap in the trees on my right, and lit up these red Maple leaves. The scenery almost looked fabricated, as if the coloring was boosted with saturation (but it wasn't). Perhaps it was the queen's gardeners (from Alice in Wonderland) who painted the leaves such a brilliant hue of red.

fall foliage at 6 pm
Many evening photographs are taken into the sun for spectacular sunsets or dramatic silhouettes. This one was more like ninety degrees away from the sun. That is a good angle to use a polarizing filter, because the sky comes out darker.
