Every year when the trees start turning colors, I look to see if this season's colors are brilliant or muted. The quest to find bright reds seems to be an annual tradition for me. This year's peak week for leaf peepers in the Northeast came later than usual. When I finally gave up hope of peeping some bright Fall leaf colors last week, the joke was on me! Outside in the crisp Northeast afternoon, the sun was shining and the leaves were brightly colored! It was a fast run for my camera gear and out the door, I went in hopes of capturing some wicked good shots! I hope you enjoy my favorite image of fall lily pond leaves with beautiful water reflections of the pine trees nearby. The vividness of the pinks, blues, and greens spoke to my soul! And now I can stop complaining about this year's Fall colors!
