October is always the busiest month out of the year, and this past October was no exception. It is really amazing to me, following the pattern of the fall leaves. The first weekend in October, there was not much color, and most people wanted to wait a bit to do their portraits. The 2nd & 3rd weekends had more color, with the weekend of the 24th and 25th at the peak color. The weekend of Halloween, most of the leaves had fallen off the trees, and I had to hunt around to find trees still with color.
The number of photographers at the parks were quite amazing too. Usually when I am shooting up at Inniswoods, there might be another photographer there. In October, you could count at least 5-8 there in the late afternoons, and sometimes on Saturdays you’d watch and see weddings parading in and out. The rangers certainly had their work cut out for them!
So here are a smattering of some of the recent outdoor photography sessions from this fall. Enjoy!
