Photographer: Stan Bysshe Location: Huntley Meadows Park, Alexandria, Virginia Equipment: Nikon D5, AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, Gitzo tripod Situation: Huntley Meadows Park occupies about 2 square miles of woods and wetlands. It’s one of the best wildlife habitats in the Washington, D.C., area and just 15 minutes from my home. It’s a rare week that I don’t spend at least one sunrise at the park. In the spring and fall, when migrating birds are passing through, I’m at Huntley several mornings a week. A year ago, I decided to try and create images of Huntley through all four seasons. I made several trips to scout the best areas to capture some of the fall color in the park. It turned out that sunset was the best time for light on the woods…

Fall is arguably the best season for outdoor photography. Temperatures mellow, and changing weather patterns bring a mix of dramatic stormy skies and overcast days with soft, diffused light on the landscape. And, of course, along with these changes come the sublime colors of foliage that make this time of year a favorite for nature photographers. When we think of fall color photography in the U.S., New England is likely the backdrop we picture, but there are opportunities across the country, likely within a few hours’ drive from your home. In this issue, we’re highlighting 10 hotspots for fall color, and some are places you might not expect. Each location has its own unique appeal, and the photographers featured in this article share their experience of the place, with insights to…

Last Leaves Of Fall “Fall can be fickle. Especially in Yosemite. I had planned a weekend photographing fall color in the Valley, only to hear friends complain that fall had come early and the leaves were almost gone. Undeterred, I made the drive and started searching for good color on the valley floor. I found some good leaves, but the pickings were slim. “On the verge of giving up, I came across these trees. Most of the leaves were gone, but there was color at the top and, more importantly, a shaded valley wall in the background. My hope was that as golden hour hit, I’d get warm, golden leaves against cool blue granite. “After an hour of waiting, everything came together.” See more of Jon McCormack’s work at jonmccormack.com.

SONY’S 61-MEGAPIXEL FULL-FRAME A7R IV “R” stands for resolution, and the new Sony a7R IV pushes that spec further than ever before for the Alpha series, with its 61-megapixel back-illuminated sensor. That’s massive resolution for a full-frame camera, but there’s more. For still subjects like architecture or even landscapes in calm weather, the a7R IV offers a Pixel Shift Multi Shooting mode that takes up to 16 full-resolution images—moving the sensor in one- or one-half-pixel increments between exposures—that can then be composited into an incredibly detailed 240-megapixel final image using Sony’s Imaging Edge desktop software. The camera’s EVF also boasts a boost in resolution. The 5.76 million-dot UXGA OLED Tru-finder EVF is Sony’s highest resolution EVF yet, and while this spec is perhaps less tangible than sensor resolution or other top-line features,…
