It’s turning out to be a beautiful year for autumn leaves in the Midwest. I think the colors will be at their peak in a week or so. I grabbed my camera and took a different walk route yesterday afternoon for this view. Bonus – I even remembered my camera!
I hope you aren’t getting tired of seeing the fall leaves from our hike at Weston Bend State Park this weekend. They may all have the same brilliant colors, but each photo is so different I just couldn’t narrow them down. Just a couple more days, I promise. And if you missed the other posts, here they are.
The first beautiful leaf fallen from our maple tree (taken before the tree turned a brilliant yellow).
Some of the most brilliant autumn leaves I’ve ever seen were on our trip to North Carolina in 2008.
Sometimes leaves can be just as pretty as blooms, especially when the sun hits them just right and they’re covered in water droplets. I have to say though, I’m looking forward to this lily blooming.
One of the few times I have to just go out and shoot photos is during my lunch break, which doesn’t lend itself to the best light, but I make do. Here’s a shot from my photo walk on Wednesday.
And don’t forget about my holiday portrait special!
Can you tell what kind of flower this is? I noticed its leaf looked translucent when the sun was hitting it a few days ago, so I dropped what I was doing to snap a few photos.
All the pretty leaves have already fallen where I live. Half the trees are brown and the other half hasn’t even turned yet. Hard to believe we’ve already passed the peak, considering it’s just over halfway through October.
I warned you I’d be posting more fall leaf photos. I just can’t help it – they’re so beautiful!
