Lederman’s Lens: Morning Light

Posted inPhotography onNovember 4 2016, by Matt Newman

Larry Lederman‘s lens takes you to the Garden when you can’t be there and previews what to see when you can.


Fall at the Garden is a time of tremendous change, but it begins in small fits and starts. You can see it in the way shafts of light slip through the trees, and in the first hints of leaf color peeking from the tips of their branches. In recent weeks, Larry Lederman has explored these scenes with his camera, visiting the Native Plant Garden and the Thain Family Forest—often the most vivid fall displays at the Garden.

Here you’ll see deciduous trees at the earliest stages of their seasonal switch, just beginning to show color and certainly wearing the early morning fall sun well.
