It’s good to be sitting down at the computer and spending a few moments reflecting on the Fall we’ve been having. The last few months have been a wee bit chaotic with trying to sell our house, being on the road, raising our little ones, and everything else in between. But, I’ve never had it so good, so I suppose I should be grateful and stop my whining!
This Fall has been good, but kind of strange. It’s been in the seventies and eighties for most of September through October, and blue skies most days. It’s definitely not typical and very warm for this time of year. However the colors still look great and they are going strong all over the state. With the warm weather it has made for some challenging photography ,and there have been a couple days I came home empty handed without even taking my camera out of my bag.
When it’s warm, dry, and clear blue skies, the leaves are just dry and crunchy looking and there’s none of that beautiful contrast and saturation we get with a day of moisture. Right now we have a small low pressure system moving through the state and has greatly helped things out.
If you are wanting to go out and photograph some fall colors, this week’s the time to do it, as in the next couple weeks a lot of trees will have dumped their leaves.
I will be traveling up north to Seeley Lake for a Fall Photography Workshop Oct. 22-24 to explore some of the amazing Larch around the Seeley-Swan Valley just as the trees are starting to peak. There is still room left on the workshop if anyone is interested. It runs from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. You can check my site for more info www.jasonsavagephotography.com
Should have some great images to post soon after.
Good luck to all those who venture out in the next couple weeks!
