A Touch of Fall

The past few weeks, as fellow bloggers have posted the most incredible fall foliage images, has been a joy for me! Having been raised in New England, fall was always my favorite season as the maples turned multiple shades of red, orange, and yellow.

Fall is still a wonderful time in northwest Oregon, but the forests are somewhat lacking in the range of color. Last week I decided to take a drive inland, about twenty miles from the coast, in an attempt to see what this fall had to offer. Unfortunately, the fog persisted most of the afternoon so the color of the big leaf maples were a bit muted. OK, so I cheated a little by adding a little "punch" via Lightroom.

Thanks Shelby, it was a fun day even if the sun failed to make an appearance.

It's nice to know there is a fall out there on the "right coast." ;-) Beautiful...

Earl, Fall ends just about a month too soon.

That's not cheating. It's maximizing potential. Very appealing scenes.

Thanks Anita - any day in the fall that is even partly sunny is a real treat.

I have no problem with a LR2 work as it really can help with what we actually saw.

It's always good to know that others make use of the "tools of the trade" - LR is great for giving the image that little extra.
