Cassandra on Fire!

Conrail 3375 and NS unit help shove a freight towards Cresson in October 2000. Thin overcast skies and Agfa Ultra 50 film helped to capture this "hyper-saturated" fall color picture. Photo was taken with a Hasselblad 500 C/M with 150mm lens. 4x5 print scanned on HP 4c scanner. No color modifications were performed in this scan...
Fall colour doesn't get any better than this. Nice shot.
Do you paint those trees?
You lucky b......, I can only dream about those vivid autumn colours...
Excelent job.

And that is why I laugh when folks out here in Seattle see three maples turn colors and rave about the wonderful autumn foliage. I just mutter "You ain't seen nothing yet..."
Wow, you don't get fall color like that all the time! I only hope to capture a scene like that someday.
I grew up in New York and moved to Colorado. You don't see colors (plural) like this in our mountains, just aspen gold. I had to travel back to Pennsylvania to get my fall color fix. The Agfa Ultra 50 was the print film version of Velvia. I think it has been discontinued so you can't get it any more. I have a 16x20 of this image printed on Kodak Endura metallic paper. The colors jump off the image.
I would have sworn the color was over-saturated
in processing, but since it wasn't, I congratulate
you for this superb photo.
