Watching Time – Autumn is a summation of everything I love about the season and the place. I chose the long horizontal format because it immerses the viewer in the experience, and because the stretched format echoes the way I always want to stretch the season and make it last longer. I can never get enough of the glorious crimsons and russets, especially since the pond will all too soon be frozen over and inaccessible, dormant until spring. Details below. Enjoy!
