Summer ends, and then winter sets in. The cold is not as enjoyable for me as the warm sunny days of summer. The winter season drastically changes what landscapes are available to photograph. So autumn is bittersweet. It is one of the most beautiful times of the year, but it goes by really fast. There are times however, just when you thing the fall colors are dying away, when mother nature puts on one more show for you.
The leaves have mostly gone from the trees. A few trees here and there still have some color. The last color of the season is highlighted with an early morning frost, and a light coating of ice on the trees from the valley fog. This show is very brief. As soon as the sun comes out, the frost is gone. Catch it while you can, and enjoy the fleeting views that mother nature gives us.
