590 to 620 nm is that glorious region of the electromagnet (light) spectrum that we call the color “orange.”  It is autumn in New England like nowhere else that I have lived this is a time to rejoice, to rejoice in the colors and flavors of the season.  And the quintessential color of fall in New England is orange.  Orange is everywhere, all shades of orange.  Everyone is happy and everyone is snapping photographs.  So I thought that I would celebrate the season with you and with a short photoessay that, because I am quirky, I am going to call “590 nm to 620 nm.  What I was looking for was essentially tone-on-tone images, where the composition is dramatically enhanced by choosing a vibrant color for the image.  This is the first part of a greater series of tone-on-tones that I am working on, with the ultimate intent of spanning the entirety of the visible spectrum.
