As Halloween approaches, I long for the autumn colors that paint the Northeast landscape. Strange how distance and time changes perception. On Oct. 30, 2005, I started shooting with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens attached to the 20D. I regarded these pics as disappointing then, but find them rather appealing today. For sure, the bokeh produced by the lens-camera combination is breathtaking. I shot the trees from our Kensington, Md., front yard.
