As is the norm in Traverse City, people have decorated their homes and yards to celebrate Halloween. Take a drive and enjoy the spooky scenes all around.
On my last photoshoot for fall color, I focused on the abundant hillsides in our area. They were alive in brilliant color! My only difficulty was shooting around the electrical and telephone wires, which seemed to be everywhere. Until next year, enjoy that last of this season’s fall color show. And if you haven't gotten out there yet, there's still plenty of color to see, especially near the Lakeshore.
The weekend forecast was for lots of sun and no rain. Saturday didn’t turn out that way, however. Gray clouds rolled in during the afternoon, but I decided to head out anyway. I’m glad I did because the fall vistas had reached peak color. It was one of the most brilliant fall afternoons I’d ever photographed, even without the blue skies. Finally, near sunset, as I headed home, the sun peeked through just enough to drench a last stand of trees in glorious sunshine.
I was in farm country Monday afternoon, checking the progression of fall colors. It was the first sunny day in ages! The color was definitely coming along, but not as much as I thought it would. Probably, all that rain didn’t help. Hope you can get outdoors these next couple weeks to enjoy the beauty of the fall season.
