Summer Photo Walk, June 11

I had high hopes for this morning’s photo walk, but the heat and wind spoiled the venture a bit. The band of temperatures that feel comfortable to me is tightening with each passing year. I’m afraid that by the time I am 50 just one temperature will suit me, likely 60 degrees.

Fall Photo Walk: Sugar Maple Peak

The sugar maples are blazing, and I was fortunate enough to capture some of these trees over the weekend. The light was unreliable despite a forecast of full sun all weekend. The wind was not cooperative at times either, which is typical of fall.

With cool temperatures at hand, the El NiƱo conditions are ending that dampened the beginning of our fall foliage season. Now we’re in the midst of the pre-peak delay, when the trees are on the verge of blazing but dim light, blustery winds, and rain prevent good captures of these changes.

I did have the chance to take a fall photo walk last weekend, and my busy week did not allow posting more of these pictures until now.

The forecast for this weekend is looking very promising, with full sun and temperatures in the 50’s. I hope to capture all the rich colors of the leaves during their predicted peak this weekend.
