A lovely Fall image from Central Park in New York City...Read More
I found some incredible color in Central Park on my recent trip to New York - my timing was excellent. And I covered about 20 miles on foot while photographing it - isn't it crazy how much walking you can do in that city?Read More
Fall is by far my favorite time of year. Though here in central Texas we do not get all the color and festive beauty that other areas experience (we do get some), you can still detect a change of the seasons. Our incredible heat subsides, the humidity disappears, and the shifting sunlight seems to have a glow about it. Instead of seeming to hammer us from above all day long, the sun is softer, lighter and I dare say friendlier. In other words, it's perfect.
One day, I will make the much-ballyhooed trip to New England during the fall, so as to catch nature in all her glory. The photos I see - with so much color - are just alive, and I find them incredibly beautiful. Living in Austin, we just don’t quite get that kind of fall. We do get cooler temps, thankfully, and get some color but nothing famous. So, imagine my surprise and excitement when I came across these wonderful leaves floating in a little creek, not too far from the house! I was able to squeeze in about 1 hour yesterday to go shoot, so I headed over to the Bull Creek Greenbelt, which was chosen primarily based on proximity. I hiked around and shot waterfalls (small ones, that is) and kept looking for fall color, to no avail. Finally, I took a different path back to the car and caught a glimpse of these leaves, floating in the creek down at the bottom of a ravine. It made my trip.
