Like most photographers, I’m trying ahead to and planning for fall images, the cooler climate the season brings, and—most significantly—the colourful shows of nature earlier than winter units in. Fall colours will be so spectacular, it actually doesn’t matter the place you go; there are various nice places to discover. Each photographer has his or her favourite fall colour photograph places, although, and these are a few of mine.

Nice Smoky Mountains Nationwide Park

Nice Smoky Mountains Nationwide Park. This “golden oldie” of Little River digs manner again in time. Taken almost 30 years in the past with a Pentax 6×7, the colour was at peak alongside Little River Highway on the way in which to Cades Cove from Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Pentax 6×7, Pentax 45mm lens, Fujichrome Velvia movie. Publicity: Roughly 2 sec., ƒ/22.

This vacation spot is a no brainer for me. It’s a straightforward five-hour drive from my hometown close to Louisville, Kentucky. The Smokies straddle the North Carolina and Tennessee border. Don’t come to the southern mountains anticipating flaming purple colours rivaling New England, as the colours listed here are bit much less vibrant than within the north. Nonetheless, the photograph alternatives are outstanding. The Smokies provide nice number of scenes and topics, together with plunging valleys, mountain vistas, historic cabins, barns, speeding streams, waterfalls and pastoral scenes in Cades Cove.

The most effective places for grand vistas are excessive up the mountain and proper on the aspect of the primary park highway, U.S. Route 441. My favourite places embrace Morton Overlook, which is one of the best westward-facing view with easy accessibility by automotive. Notice, nevertheless, that the solar doesn’t set within the valley under through the fall season. This location will be good for morning fog blended with fall colours.

At Newfound Hole, simply earlier than crossing into North Carolina, there’s a massive parking space with restricted vistas. Following Route 441 east and descending into North Carolina, the view in your proper is a few of the finest within the japanese U.S. Right here you’ll discover a collection of overlooks dealing with south with spectacular views of Deep Creek Valley. This space will be good in each the mornings and evenings within the fall.

The park is blessed with quite a few speeding streams and rivers flowing beneath a cover of mature hardwoods displaying their colours. A few of the finest embrace Little River alongside Little River Highway on the way in which to Cades Cove, Little Pigeon River, Center Prong of Little River and Huge Creek.

The timing of “peak” fall colour isn’t a precise science. Often the height on this space is from the third week in October into the primary week of November. Peak colour can range per week or so in both path, so it’s finest to verify earlier than going. If you’re early, work the upper elevations; if you’re late within the season, take a look at Cades Cove for the final remaining colour.

Cades Cove is on my must-see record throughout any season. If planning a go to, know there’s a gate proscribing entry by car till dawn. Guests begin lining up of their automobiles on the gate an hour earlier than dawn, so plan on arriving very early and ready in your automotive in line till the ranger opens the gate. In case you can’t be there very early, I’d skip Cades Cove. By mid-morning, the 11-mile loop highway turns right into a car parking zone, and it requires a number of hours to make the loop via this lovely pastoral setting.

Probably the most centrally positioned lodging for the Smokies is in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I choose accommodations positioned very close to the park entrance for straightforward entry out and in of Gatlinburg, which will be very crowded in fall. Get out very early, and the crowds should not often an issue, however returning to Gatlinburg at time for dinner generally is a visitors headache.

Blue Ridge Parkway

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Blue Ridge Parkway
Blue Ridge Parkway. Dawn and lightweight fog within the valley are seen from Pounding Mill Overlook. That is certainly one of my favourite fall dawn places alongside the Blue Ridge Parkway. On today, the fog laid within the valley completely and had this cotton sweet search for almost two hours after dawn. Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM at 250mm. Publicity: 10 sec., ƒ/16, ISO 100.

The Journey Channel not too long ago featured the Blue Ridge Parkway as among the finest fall foliage highway journeys within the nation, and it’s certainly one of my favorites as effectively. The Parkway really terminates on the Nice Smoky Mountains Nationwide Park, which means you’ll be able to simply {photograph} the Smokies after which discover northward on the Parkway on the identical journey.

Brevard, North Carolina, supplies a superb base from which to discover. This artsy small city has nice eating places and lodging. Simply out of city is the DuPont State Forest, dwelling to Hooker Falls and different nice waterfalls surrounded by a colourful hardwood forest. Excessive Falls, Triple Falls and Bridal Veil Falls are fascinating locations, when you don’t thoughts mountain climbing. The DuPont State Forest can also be conveniently positioned about 40 miles from Asheville, North Carolina.

Simply out of Brevard in your option to the Parkway on U.S. Route 276 you move Trying Glass Falls within the Pisgah Nationwide Forest. It’s about 35 steps down from the roadside parking to the viewing space on the base of this 60-foot waterfall. Additionally on Route 276 is the Cradle of Forestry, an American Heritage Web site. Right here you’ll discover restored cabins, an previous schoolhouse, rail fences and wood wagons.

The Parkway makes use of a milepost system to establish factors of curiosity alongside the 469-mile route, spanning Virginia and North Carolina. My favourite dawn location is at Pounding Mill Overlook, positioned at Milepost 413.2. Right here you may have a commanding view from an elevation of 4,700 toes. Morning fog typically fills the valleys under and fall colours grace the mountain slopes greater up. The most effective sundown location is at Cowee Mountain Overlook, Milepost 430.7 at an elevation of 5,950. Right here you may have a sweeping, traditional view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

For me, morning is much and away one of the best time to {photograph} the Blue Ridge. Nature typically places on its most spectacular gentle reveals at first gentle, particularly when there may be fog within the valleys or clouds rolling over mountain ridges like waterfalls. If it’s foggy and wet, don’t despair—there are tons of photograph alternatives to border fall colours in opposition to foggy backgrounds. Or enterprise into the forest for extra intimate scenes. Macro images is excellent on foggy and wet days. If you will discover the awe and surprise in small topics, you’ll by no means run out of fascinating issues to {photograph}.

The most effective time to go to is from the top of September to the top of October. Permit for loads of journey time between mileposts as there may be heaps to see and {photograph}.

New Hampshire

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Crawford Notch State Park, New Hampshire
New Hampshire. The pure roadside attraction of Silver Cascade at Crawford Notch State Park attracts guests like a magnet. Drivers always cease and guests soar from their autos to snap a fast shot. That is the most-photographed waterfall within the White Mountains Nationwide Forest. Be very cautious crossing the highway when you determine to cease and be a part of the enjoyable. Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM at 45mm. Publicity: 1.5 sec., ƒ/16, ISO 100.

Point out fall colours and New Hampshire immediately involves thoughts. Many take into account the Kancamagus Freeway one of the best fall scenic drive in New England. Often known as New Hampshire Route 112, this Nationwide Scenic Byway runs 22 miles via the White Mountains from Lincoln to Conway and positively delivers on these expectations. Photographers from throughout the nation descend upon this space each fall. The White Mountains at peak colour are exhausting to beat; the air is crisp and clear, and the north woods are wealthy with vibrant reds and yellows. Fall colour often peaks round late September to the primary week in October.

My favourite space is the Swift River, operating proper alongside the scenic byway. The river flows and cascades over boulders and beneath scenic lined bridges in typical New England allure. The river is at its finest on cloudy, drizzly days, when the colours are tremendous saturated, the sunshine is tender and rocks within the river are moist. Decrease falls is likely one of the extra scenic cascades within the Swift River, flowing over massive granite boulders.

My favourite pond for a bigger scenic is Beaver Pond. Mornings earlier than 9 a.m. provide one of the best lighting, and on calm days, the reflection is crystal clear. Entry could be very straightforward for novices, and execs will benefit from the many variations to be discovered with a bit extra visible exploration. From Woodstock, New Hampshire (not Woodstock, Vermont), journey 3.9 miles on Route 112.

Lily Pond is 18 miles west of Conway proper off the Kancamagus Freeway and is a highly regarded images vacation spot. Right here a phenomenal small pond is surrounded by mountains draped in fall splendor. On a peaceful day, the reflections on the pond are spectacular.

You might discover the Kancamagus Freeway in both path. I often choose exploring from east to west, beginning in Conway. The benefit of touring east to west is there’s a superb alternative to discover Franconia Notch, dwelling to Flume Gorge. The gorge is positioned on the base of Mount Liberty in Franconia Notch State Park, close to Lincoln. The world contains a plunging gorge with a boardwalk for protected entry, waterfalls and curving cascades carved deep into the rocks.

From Lincoln, you may as well journey north about 30 miles on scenic U.S. Route 302 to Crawford Notch State Park. Right here you’ll discover Silver Cascade, really a roadside waterfall. This should be one of many most-photographed waterfalls within the nation. Notice that this space will be fairly crowded with vacationers and photographers alike, so it’s finest to go to within the very early morning earlier than the crowds arrive.

These areas all deserve extra exploration than a single journey will ever reveal, but in addition take into account getting off the well-traveled roads and examine a few of the again roads. There’s lovely surroundings in every single place.

Michigan’s Higher Peninsula

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Michigan’s Higher Peninsula. Crimson Jack Lake is a favourite for my fall colour workshop within the U.P. throughout early October. On today, just one different photographer was on location. Simply the morning earlier than, we had dramatic storm clouds at dawn, however on today the bushes and the reflection have been all that was wanted. Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM at 182mm. Publicity: 1/5 sec., ƒ/11, ISO 100.

The “U.P.” or Higher Peninsula of Michigan is a photographer’s paradise. There are sandstone cliffs, seashores, sand dunes, waterfalls, inland lakes, north woods and a wild shoreline to discover. Lake Superior wields its affect on the park’s shore areas and areas a lot additional inland, creating distinctive and assorted panorama for images.

For me, the U.P. consists of three fundamental areas to discover. The obvious is the shoreline cliffs and seashores of Pictured Rocks Nationwide Lakeshore, a definite space of its personal. The shoreline of Lake Superior will be traveled on land in lots of areas or through guided tour boats. The most effective views of the 200-foot excessive cliffs are from a ship, which operates each day, climate allowing. Exploring from land is kind of rewarding as waterfalls cascade off cliffs, waves crash in opposition to the shoreline with great power, and fall colours adorn the intersection of land and water.

With per week to spend, strive understanding of two totally different places. The primary is Munising, with superb entry to the Nationwide Lakeshore, waterfalls and a few of the finest lakes surrounded by north woods and fall colours. My good pal John Dykstra launched me to the U.P. just a few years in the past, and I used to be hooked. A few of our first adventures started round Crimson Jack Lake, Council Lake, Irwin Lake and Thornton Lake within the Hiawatha Nationwide Forest.

Crimson Jack Lake is surrounded by a squishy bathroom of Sphagnum moss, and you’re really strolling and capturing from a floating mass of vegetation. Sure, you’ll be able to fastidiously arrange a tripod, and it’s finest you probably have rubber boots or water sneakers in some locations across the shoreline. Deep purple-colored northern pitcher crops follow their carnivorous life-style within the many bogs.

I assume I’m only a morning photographer, however as soon as once more these lakes are finest at dawn, as they’re often calm with reflections, and a lightweight morning mist simply provides to the tranquil temper. Top-of-the-line issues in regards to the U.P. is that it’s not overrun with guests. This space is likely one of the best-kept secrets and techniques within the nation. Plan to be on location round Oct. 10.

The Hiawatha Nationwide Forest surrounding Munising is solely an incredible instance of pristine north woods. The forest understory is open and clear, blueberry foliage is purple, pines and hardwoods combine for nice colour combos, reindeer lichen carpets the forest ground, and golden ferns rise above in nice profusion. The macro potentialities on and across the forest ground are gorgeous, even higher when there are dewdrops or raindrops clinging to every little thing.

About 98 miles east of Munising is Paradise, an important location to headquarter your second stage of exploration. A must-see is Tahquamenon Falls at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in Paradise. It is likely one of the largest waterfalls east of the Mississippi, some 200 toes broad with a 50-foot drop. The water right here is tea-colored from the tannins leached from the cedar swamps, which the river drains. The falls are finest visited on a cloudy day, or higher but a day with very gentle drizzle. There are literally two units of falls on the Tahquamenon River: Higher Falls, the bigger fundamental waterfall, and Decrease Falls, positioned Four miles down-river. The decrease falls consists of 5 smaller falls cascading round an island that’s simply accessible by rowboat. As soon as on the island, a brief mountain climbing path runs alongside the riverside, providing nice views. Additional downstream the river turns into extra placid and gives nice morning scenes of steam rising alongside banks lined in purple ferns.

Close by is Whitefish Level Lighthouse, good for an additional scenic focal point. Search for reflections within the home windows and the brightly coloured purple rooftops. The lakeshore seashores listed here are lined in colourful rounded clean stones. These are fantastic for pure sample photos.

Acadia Nationwide Park

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Acadia National Park
Acadia Nationwide Park. Fall colours reflecting on flooded parking space at Wild Gardens of Acadia. Our workshop hit as fall colours peaked within the park, however we additionally had a hurricane blowing up the coast, depositing torrential rains for a full day. The catastrophe made for some nice reflections the next day. Thank goodness that the rain stopped, as we may solely shoot reduce flowers within the lodge convention room for thus lengthy! Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM at 100mm. Publicity: 2 sec., ƒ/16, ISO 100.

With its dramatic assembly of land and sea, Acadia Nationwide Park is a photographer’s dream any time of 12 months. Throw in crisp, cool autumn air, spectacular fall colours, rugged shoreline, lakes and ponds, and it’s not possible to go flawed, photographically talking. Take into account that peak fall colour is often round mid-October, however like anyplace else, the precise peak might range. (You’ll be able to verify present situations at Peak colour appears a bit late within the season for such a northern location, which is as a result of ocean moderating coastal temperatures, delaying peak colour in comparison with extra inland places.

No matter what the autumn colours are doing, the shoreline within the park is solely gorgeous. Pink granite boulders rise in opposition to the relentless pounding of the ocean waves. The most effective seashores are on the east aspect of Mount Desert Island and are spectacular at dawn. Ocean Path is a straightforward path proper alongside the primary highway, following a dramatic stretch between Sand Seashore and Otter Level. Landmarks you’ll encounter embrace Sand Seashore, Thunder Gap, Monument Cove and Otter Cliff. Otter Cliff is a highly regarded backdrop. This space will be fairly crowded at dawn throughout peak instances, with photographers jockeying for one of the best angle on the bowling-ball-sized rocks on the seashore, so arrive lots early.

Cadillac Mountain is the tallest mountain on Mount Desert Island. The summit of it’s stated to obtain the very first gentle that strikes the U.S., and is a particularly in style location at dawn. The car parking zone on the prime is commonly full, so once more, go very early, or skip it and discover additional inland away from the crowds. The view at dawn is gorgeous, with pink granite rocks dotting the panorama amongst wild blueberry foliage displaying wealthy purple autumn colour.

Jordan Pond and Bubble Pond are well-known locations and positively price your go to. Mountain climbing trails afford loads of entry round these two ponds, and a brief trek of 800 toes rewards you with sweeping views of Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond, surrounded by breathtaking fall colours.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is one other must-see vacation spot inside the park. This lighthouse is likely one of the most photogenic lights in New England. This attraction will be photographed at dawn or sundown. The lighthouse is about 18 miles from Bar Harbor on the south aspect of Mount Desert Island, simply off Maine State Route 102A.

Roughly midway between Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse and Seawall on Route 102A is the Wonderland Path. This space is degree in comparison with the remainder of Acadia. The path is an previous deserted highway heading towards the ocean. On the way in which, you move via pines and huge flat areas lined in wild blueberry foliage displaying sensible purple leaves. On the ocean, there are tide swimming pools to discover on this quieter aspect of the island.

Acadia has far more than sufficient to fulfill most photographers, and I’ve merely touched on the massive apparent places. Get out and discover by yourself through the carriage paths and quite a few mountain climbing trails, and also you gained’t be disillusioned.

Though not a part of the park, Breakneck Ponds typically have nice fall colour across the shoreline and reflections for wide-angle scenic photos. These ponds are positioned just some minutes out of Bar Harbor off Maine State Route 233. From Bar Harbor go west on Route 233 to the northern tip of Eagle Lake close to Eagle Lake Bridge. From right here there’s a quick mountain climbing path north to Breakneck Ponds.

Colorado’s San Juan Mountains

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Colorado's San Juan Mountains
Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. This can be a nice view of Mt. Sneffels from a really massive parking space about 10.5 miles west of Ridgeway on Colorado State Freeway 62. Because of the manner the mountains are positioned, this location is nice at dawn or sundown. It may be actually windy at this overlook. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM at 70mm. Publicity: 1.Three sec., ƒ/9, ISO 100.

Colorado is very breathtaking, with towering mountains rising dramatically with golden aspen bushes blanketing slopes. The San Juan Mountains are gorgeous and simply accessible from Ouray, Colorado. Aptly described, Ouray calls itself the “Switzerland of America.”

About 6.Three miles south of Ouray towards Silverton on U.S. Route 550 (the “Million Greenback Freeway”) is Crystal Lake. Some discover the highway to be scary, with enormous drop offs and no guardrails, so maintain your eyes on the highway driving up this steep, curvy part. Crystal Lake is nice for a dawn reflection of two mountains lined with aspens on surrounding slopes. Arrive early and go towards the far aspect of the dam for one of the best views. It might take just a few tries at this lake to get a peaceful morning for a pristine reflection. That is additionally an important location for traditional white aspen trunks surrounded by golden leaves, additionally on the far finish of the dam.

Persevering with south on Route 550 is Ironton, a ghost city on the left aspect of the highway. A number of deserted buildings provide numerous photographic potentialities. Persevering with on one other 5 miles brings you to Crimson Mountain Move at 11,008 toes, offering views of mines, purple slopes and rust-colored mine tailings. This space is finest in late afternoon gentle.

You could possibly drive Route 550 for a lot of extra miles, however I often flip round at Crimson Mountain Move and begin working my manner again towards Ridgeway and exploring areas west on Colorado State Freeway 62, which runs from Ridgeway to Placerville. County roads from this freeway result in great views of Mt. Sneffels and the Uncompahgre Nationwide Forest. Freeway 62 is paved, however most of the aspect roads require a higher-clearance car, and presumably 4-wheel drive after a rain.

The primary highway you come to in Ridgeway is County Highway 5 (Lady Scout Camp Highway). Observe this highway so far as you’ll be able to. It crosses non-public property, so keep on the highway till within the nationwide forest. This highway is much less well-known and fewer busy than County Highway 7 and County Highway 9. That is traditional Colorado within the fall, with enormous aspen stands and hovering mountains.

Roughly 5 miles out of Ridgeway, flip left onto County Highway 7. Try the pond on the left for a view of Mt. Sneffels. The pond is on non-public land, so please keep on the highway.

County Highway 9 is 6 miles from Ridgeway. Flip left as soon as once more and observe the highway for about one other 6 miles. The highway crosses the Double RL Ranch owned by Ralph Lauren, so once more, don’t enterprise off the highway till within the Uncompahgre Nationwide Forest.

Dallas Divide is an excellent cease for sweeping vistas of the Sneffels Vary. It’s a massive parking space about 10.5 miles west of Ridgeway on Freeway 62. Dawn and sundown are one of the best instances to seize this traditional view. Keep behind the wood rail fence—property on the opposite aspect of the fence is non-public.

I’ve stated it a number of instances, but it surely bears repeating: Please be respectful of all non-public property. Photographers in some areas, such because the Palouse, are sporting out their welcome by having little or no regard for personal property of others. Please don’t be a type of photographers.

Yellowstone Nationwide Park

Favorite Fall Color Photo Locations: Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone Nationwide Park. I get pleasure from exploring quiet places which are much less visited. This little part of Glen Creek was very satisfying, and I had all of it to myself on a drizzly autumn day. The colourful foliage alongside the meandering creek provides a delicate contact of curiosity. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM at 70mm. Publicity: 0.5 sec., ƒ/16, ISO 100.

Yellowstone is commonly neglected as an important fall vacation spot, however it’s actually spectacular otherwise than the opposite places I’ve talked about right here. My favourite time to go to is in mid-to-late September. By way of colour, there are certainly patches of yellow aspens and cottonwood bushes, however the grassy meadows and thermal options are the attraction. The grasses and reeds within the meadows flip gold and purple in mid-September. The bottom foliage is kind of spectacular in its personal proper.

Autumn temps in a single day will be fairly cool, good for producing ethereal steam clouds from the nice and cozy waters and geothermal options. The fog and steam add a magical ambiance to the meadows, streams and bushes, affording us limitless alternative to discover inventive landscapes. Elk, bison, wolves, coyotes and bear are of their prime and make nice portraits or components of bigger panorama photos. Dew and frost sparkle and refract the morning gentle throughout the meadows and spider webs glisten. The toughest factor could also be deciding the right way to break up your time between photographing wildlife or landscapes. With somewhat luck, an early dusting of snow transforms the park’s scenic potentialities.

The park is so massive you might wish to take into account lodging in two or extra places. I like West Yellowstone outdoors the park on the west entrance. Right here there are many lodging and eating places as soon as capturing is finished for the day. From West Yellowstone, the pullout at Madison Junction close to the campground is a superb meadow for steaming sunrises alongside the Madison River. The resident elk herd right here will be very cooperative and energetic round dawn. This nook has been a favourite of mine for a few years.

Gardiner on the north entrance is a superb location for exploring the areas round Mammoth Sizzling Springs, Tower-Roosevelt and Lamar Valley additional towards the northeast entrance.

Previous Devoted Inn is a favourite for households and positioned contained in the park, however reservations must be made a 12 months prematurely. Make sure to see an Previous Devoted eruption, particularly you probably have a dramatic sky behind this much-photographed icon.

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is one other iconic place for panorama images. The most effective time within the fall is at dawn. The canyon partitions provide nice patterns to be extracted by the observant photographer with a telephoto lens. One 12 months, my workshop group was met with an enormous male black bear proper on the sidewalk on the overlook. After all, we knew who needed to yield on this state of affairs.

I by no means tire of Yellowstone. The interplay of sunshine, the steam, vibrant colours and huge animals in abundance are intoxicating. Even when the autumn colours within the meadows mysteriously did not materialize, tons of different topics on this jewel of a park beckon to be photographed. The thermal options alone provide great colours, patterns and textures any season or time of day.

My Suggestions For Fall Coloration Images

Crimson maple tree in Pisgah Nationwide Forest, North Carolina. Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM at 82mm. Publicity: 1 sec., ƒ/13, ISO 100.

Nice fall colour photos will be made in any form of gentle, from brilliant solar to overcast skies and rain. Regulate your capturing to accommodate the lighting encountered. In any case, we’re “portray with gentle,” so use it to one of the best impact. For instance, if the sky is white and featureless, merely compose with none sky.

All the time take into account the path of your lighting and the way it impacts necessary parts of your composition. Strive backlighting leaves or different colourful topics for a distinct look, and range your publicity enormously for dramatically backlit topics.

I almost all the time use a tripod for landscapes and the bottom ISO that may get the job executed. If the wind is shifting the leaves in your scene, keep away from longer exposures—until you’re in search of a movement blur impact. If there’s a troublesome breeze, push the ISO greater to permit for shorter shutter speeds to counteract motion and blurry leaves. I’d somewhat use the next ISO and freeze any movement than use the bottom ISO and have blurry photos.

More often than not, my lenses have polarizers on them. This filter saturates the colours of most scenes, eradicating shiny glare that reduces colour transmission. The filter is very efficient round waterfalls, moist leaves and rocks, and wider scenic photos. Simply watch out on crystal clear blue-sky days. When utilizing a really broad lens, solely a portion of the sky is polarized. Often, one nook of the sky could be very darkish blue and the opposite nook is regular. Unevenness within the sky could be very unnatural trying within the completed picture. A polarizing filter can also be very efficient on moist cloudy days, once more eradicating delicate reflections from moist rocks and foliage.

Practice your self to be open to all the probabilities out there at any given time. Strive capturing straight up via the bushes. Look down on the bottom on the nearly limitless alternatives for macro images through the fall season. Leaf patterns on the bottom, mushrooms, ferns, pinecones, rocks, lichen, grasses, frost, dew—all are wonderful topics if we take the time to watch them carefully.
