The Fall Foliage 1 NFT is the first of a series of NFTs by Dan Schenker Photography. Its intention is to celebrate the fall colors in northern New Jersey, a far cry from New Jersey’s external reputation! This was originally taken via aerial drone at a secret location in New Jersey.
More specifically, this is a particularly special photo to me. I’d been hunting for the absolute perfect time to capture the fall foliage in the northern part of the state, and I’d struck out on a handful of locations leading up to this one. Either the trees were dead, or the colors were flat… nothin really popped. Then this road jumped out at me: the perfect winding road through the perfect patch of color. It’s been compared to a location where a car commercial might be filmed, and I couldn’t agree with that thought more.
I plan to build this series out with other photos taken from the air, but I’m curious to see how the community thinks this series should evolve. Should it strictly be aerial photos? Aerial photos of just New Jersey? Any photos of New Jersey? Aerial photos from anywhere? I’d love to tap into the community aspect of NFTs and crypto in general to really help this series grow as organically as possible.
Because this is a special photo to me, it was released as a unique NFT: a supply of 1.
Also, I had originally minted it with a starting price of 0.075 WETH to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, but I’d since dropped it to just 0.02 WETH while I get a feel for the NFT photography space and feel out the levels of interest for different types of projects.
The auction is live from October 15, 2021 through November 15, 2021.
I hope you love this photo as much as I do, and I can’t wait to see it as a part of your collection!
