Board walk in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park during autumn season.
Story Behind the Photo
Catching the peak autumn colors is like dream come true for most of us. As I noted in Day #9 and Day #10 photo stories, we were on a week trip to Upper Peninsula area and were lucky enough to witness the peak colors.
Every nook and corner of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park was filled with colors. It was truly a breath-taking experience. Out of numerous board walks inside the park, the beauty surrounding this board walk caught my attention.
Composing such scene is a no brainer because of the leading lines that are formed by the board walk. Vertical composition made me to fill the frame with peak colors and removed uninteresting portions from either side of the frame.
Body: Nikon D7100

Most often you would end up with good results with simple composition techniques like leading lines. Added to it, if you try both vertical and horizontal compositions you would know what works the best for a given scene.
Facts from Wiki
The Porcupine Mountains, or Porkies, are a group of small mountains spanning the northwestern Upper Peninsula of Michigan in Ontonagon and Gogebic counties, near the shore of Lake Superior. The area is part of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. The Porcupine Mountains were named by the native Ojibwa people, supposedly because their silhouette had the shape of a porcupine.
