Finding Fall Leaves

I found it a bit challenging for shooting fall leaves in Ann Arbor this year.  Maybe it was me, but peak color waited for a frost that never came, and then the colors peaked at different times, followed by wind that blew leaves off of trees much more quickly than in past years. Here we are in November and we haven’t had a hard frost, and our days warm to the 70’s all week. Very bizarre!  Not so bad for yard cleanup, but somehow I’ve not found as many great, peak-color shooting opportunities as in past years.

Still, there were fall leaves that didn’t disappear too fast – or maybe my timing was lucky. I found a striking maple across the Argo Cascades and explored the large leaves of a hydrangea in my back yard.
