First Snow

We had already scheduled a trip to check out how fall colors were coming along when we got 6″ of fresh heavy snow.  The cold snap helped the colors along, bringing out brilliant reds in the maples, and golden yellows among the oaks.

The ground was covered with a blanket of fallen color on the fresh white snow.  It was a thing of beauty to walk among nature and all her glory.

We even found these fresh bear tracks leading through the forest, who surely must have been enjoying the cool weather and the awesome environment we were witnessing.

First Fall

Living in the woods, I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite season, as we have all 4 of them.  They all have their own beauty.  Having said that, I do love Fall.  As a photographer, Fall provides such photographic possibilities.  While it is a grand subject, made busy by the very trees and leaves that make it beautiful.  The trick is to separate out the color from the busyness, while maintaining the intent.

Our Fall has only just begun, but it is coming fast.  The temps are dropping, as are the leaves.  So these are the first Fall photos of the year, but there promise to be more…. and I can’t wait for the challenge and the beauty that comes with it.
