Fall is perhaps my favorite season to photograph nature. The sun hangs lower in the sky, casting long shadows and sweet light across a tapestry of leaves and foliage that changes colors day by day. I love the smells too and the crisp feeling in the air that reminds me to soak up the last of the warm days before the winter rains come. Sun bursting through crimson and vibrant yellow trees creates a phenomenal glow that fills my soul with warmth, a warmth that will get me through the dark days of winter and on to the new green of distant spring.
