After the government shutdown, I am diverted to state parks. The following pictures were taken yesterday at Great River Bluff State Park, MN, overlooking Mississippi River. Love the fall colors.
Tip of the Day
If you are into fall colors like I do, October is typically the best time of the year to photograph them. I mentioned before that the best time to photograph the colors of mountains or clouds is during sunrise or sunset. However, the fall colors are best captured in strong sun light, for example between 10-4pm. The direct sunlight will reflect the brightest colors from the leaves into your camera. Just make sure to have the sun behind you, and avoid shooting into the sun. The latter will only give you a silhouette of trees which will make them look dark.
It’s not too late to get out to photograph the colors. Enjoy your next photo shooting!
