Lockett Meadow Aspen Yellow

Lockett Mdw_IR.jpgThere’s a chill in the air, you know what that means.  Snow is on the way, and fall is in the air.  It’s been a busy time around here, but we are trying to get out to check out the fall colors.  I posted our first glimpse here…  https://kritterspaw.com/2017/09/29/first-fall/

In an effort to diversify our fall outings, we planned a picnic to Lockett Meadow to check out the aspen color.  Lockett Meadow, just outside of Flagstaff, is known for it’s fields of yellow aspen… and it didn’t disappoint.

The woods were ‘aflame’ with yellow, bursting with brilliant yellows against aspens’s signature white truck.  It made a delightful setting for our enjoyable and relaxing day out.  Even Journey enjoyed it.

With the winds we are experiencing, I don’t expect the leaves to last long.  The roads are alive with leaves scattering and blowing across our path as we walk among nature’s beauty.   Catch it while you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.

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.
