The Sycamore trees lining the path to the pier in Red Bank Battlefield Park have lost all their leaves now (I was there this afternoon). I took several pictures of the trees a few weeks ago on a bright, sunny afternoon and captured the last of the autumn ‘colors.’
Sycamore trees resonate with me. I love the shapes of the branches, the unique bark and the tones and patterns made by that bark. I enjoy the play of light and shadow in B&W without the distractions of color.
Both images were taken on the same day with my Nikon N8008s/35mm AF lens combo. The camera was loaded with LP400 film (Fuji Neopan 400). The combination of a moderate wide lens and fast film allowed me to get the depth of field I needed for these shots.
