Yes, It's That Time Again
I refer, of course, to fall, autumn, what ever. Mark my word, blog after blog will soon be saturated with pictures of fall colors. Red leafs, yellow leafs and corny water reflections. I also suspect that copies of Photography for Idiots will soon be flying off the shelves of the local book stores. This is a no brainer.With today's digital cameras (and excellent films) it is incredibly simple to capture fall colors. Year after year, photogs make pilgrimages to Vermont, the Smokies and other picturesque locations to capture the colorful change of seasons. Few, however, will succeed in capturing something really special. After all, it's all been done before. It requires, at least, the right light and a perceptive eye. Best light usually occurs early in the day after a rainfall when the saturated air softly scatters the light.
Unwilling to travel or wait for the perfect conditions, I grabbed these shots at a parkway 3 blocks from my house. Break out the cider. It is fall.

Paddle safe...

Here in Israel fall lasts almost a full day, then its suddenly winter, cold and rainy. So its not often that we get to see the fantastic colors that you guys can so easily photograph. We enjoy looking at all the colors and eat our hearts out. Keep posting, just for us. Thanks

Thanks all. I never thought about places that didn't have fall color. I'll also have to check out Michael's images.
