Fall Colors

September 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

As September begins, the signs of autumn are not widespread, but they are apparent in the forests. Mushroom season has peaked, and the first leaves have fallen to the forest floor. Leaves in the canopy are beginning to loose their chlorophyll and will soon turn the characteristic golden color.

Leaves change at different times, which means that one area might be a glorious display of color while the appearance of summer is just a couple of miles away. This means that a photographer must time visits to nature's fireworks quite precisely.

Fall colors are impressive from a distance, but I think they are best viewed from within the forests. When sunlight passes through the translucent leaves, the forest floor is bathed in an orange glow.

Autumn transforms the landscape in a more colorful but less drastic change than winter, but we can be sure that the first snow is not far behind.
