It’s been a while since I actually went out on a Wednesday in Marblehead to capture images around town. The name of the site got its name from my day off of my ‘real’ job but I tended to shoot whenever the light was good and it worked out between the home and work schedule.  Yesterday, I dropped the kids off at their respective schools and headed out to Waterside Cemetery where I had scouted a tree nearing peak foliage a few days previously.

I found the tree to have reached its peak color with very little in the way of leaf drop and had arrived in time for the sun to still be behind the leaves allowing the backlight to illuminate their varying colors. I stopped down the lens and moved to this spot in order to capture the sun as a sun star (or sunburst) between the tree’s branches.

If you are looking for some great displays of fall color, head over to Waterside Cemetery this weekend for some nice leaf peeping.
