View Full Version : Frosty Morning Shoot...

09-20-2009, 12:33 PM
Though still two plus days from the true beginning of autumn, I've found that in certain environments, color doesn't wait for the calendar to switch.

This morning I began my annual persuit of morning light and autumn foliage. There is something really special about a misty, frosty and crisp morning. Perhaps it's the chill itself, or the silence, muffled by the life's slowness to stir. Perhaps its the anticipation of the coming rays of light that still bring considerable warmth this time of year. Perhaps it's simply the explosion of colors masked by the cloak of green all summer. Whatever it is, I look forward to photographing this season all year.

This morning I shot Ponemah Bog in Amherst, NH, the place that nearly killed my camera this past June. I arrived before 6AM to heavy mist and light frost. A great way to begin autumn!

You are so talented!!

The middle one is my fave. I always like to see a trail or a path in nature photos.

The first one is my favorite, though they are all excellent. I too like the boards/trail. It should be named "Trail to the Sun".:)

Thanks all! It's a great spot, highly rec, just because it's such easy access to a really unique ecosystem!

Very pretty! I like the first one best. I like the capture of a frosty autumn morning in a meadow. Love it!

happy trails :)

I like the first one the best because of the walkway, which is missing in the last photo. I alway try to incoporate images that "walks" your eyes through the picture.

Jim, those are absolutely amazing! I can't pick a favorite! Wish I could get myself up early enough to witness such a scene! :D
