Fall Photo Walk, October 21

I’m pleased to report that I am feeling significantly better today than I did yesterday. I am also grateful that my orthopedic problems do not prevent me from enjoying my photo walk habit; I don’t need to linger too long in any one spot to get a decent shot. This weekend photo walk habit has certainly lifted my spirits during this ongoing saga.

Low rainfall and a lack of cool nights have contributed to an underwhelming leaf season this year. The display started early due to leaf drop, and it is dragging on with muted colors. I increased the saturation on some of these shots. The muted palette just didn’t look natural to me despite that it is a normal result of the unusually dry, warm climate we’ve had over the past three months.

Here’s a curiosity I spotted today. I can’t decide if it resembles an extremely advanced yoga position or a sleek predator turning ever-so-slightly to catch a secret glimpse of its prey:

I hope leaf season lingers throughout the month so I have a few more opportunities for photo walks with this sort of scenery. I’m not sure if we’ll have true peak color this year, but I will enjoy the process of capturing these changes, nonetheless.
