Don’t you love the Fall Season? You get all excited because it’s that time of the year when the leaves change and they’re oh so beautiful. The sky is bright and the clouds just make everything so, so sweet. You go to an online website and find out when the leaves will be at their fullest peak when they change colors. You have a few “favorite places” to take photographs. And if you’re an artist you tend to do the same. Sounds like a Hallmark movie 🙂  Yep that’s me.

Reality sets in. They never changed to their fullest peak or if they did it was quick. Remember when they use to last at least 1-2 weeks? Those days are long gone; at least in Northern VA where I live. Who knows maybe I’m looking in the wrong places; but I do know of some places that I go to they would change. And if they have changed they’re spotted here and there.

So a few weeks ago I was in the mood to shoot fall images. I really wasn’t in the mood to drive anywhere; I wanted someplace close. Then I thought, “Fall is more than pretty trees”. What else happens during the fall season? Of course we rake the leaves up to give the grass room to breathe…and to jump in them for fun 🙂 🙂  But how often, as we walk around, look down to see what’s going on? I decided to do that. A couple of days I went to two of my spots and decided to photograph other parts of Fall such as leaves changing on the tree limbs, branches piled up, or how they look after the rain. It’s amazing what you see because we just take it all for granted.


I did find some beautiful trees to photograph! It was awesome and so much fun. Thank you Harpers Ferry National Park parking lot for this beautiful image of Fall 😉 😉
