Fall Is Falling
It's fall foliage time. Close the book and grab your camera!
Before there is this....
There will be these....
Looking again at these photos....
Spectacular fall foliage can be on a street near you, or from a trip you take in the fall specifically to see the fall foliage.
Fall is also a time when there is rain and there can be rainbows just across the street, but still with fall foliage. If the sun comes out after a fall rain, look for the rainbows and position them in your photo where you want to capture them.
A mountainside with varied fall colors is always inviting the viewer to imagine walking there, even climbing up a hill.
Views from different angles become even more inviting with a stream running through the foliage, and be sure to take views from slightly different angles so you can choose the one you prefer later on. You can't ever go back to get what you once saw but didn't snap.
Another advantage of multiple photos of a scene, is that you may later find out there is an object in the photo which spoiled what you thought was a perfectly good photo. Having an alternate view of the scene you wanted to capture will save the photo.
This days of digital cameras with copious microchips, snap away. Unlike the days when only professional photographers could afford seemingly endless film and the developing of hundreds of photos, today the average photographer can snap almost endlessly, save the wanted photos and remove the rest to free up space for hundreds more.
Sometimes an individual tree can offer a variety of colors. Sometimes you will want to feature just the bright color of the foliage alone, or show the whole tree which created the gorgeous foliage.
Fall is a time like no other, and the beauty can be all around you, from the street where you live, your own backyard, or that special trip made for visual memories and the photo reminders.
Enjoy the season again this year, and every fall hereafter.
