Fall is finally showing its true color in Marblehead and I have been fortunate to catch a few areas at their peak. On Saturday, I was driving down West Shore when I saw this brilliant tree in Waterside Cemetery. I quickly turned around and grabbed my camera for a few shots. The trouble was that many of the trees in the background had already lost their leaves so the lone tree looked a bit depressing rather than vibrant. I chose to process this photo using the Orton effect (which I also used on the Welcome to Marblehead sign a while back) to give it a painterly quality and highlight the singular red tree. More foliage shots to come this week.
