Dogwoods in Color

It’s that time of year again. Our neighborhood thankfully has lots of Dogwood trees (first and second photo) and others that “get their color” early in the fall. It helps having good light (sun rise) when you make a photo of trees and leaves. Backlighting is also really nice as in the second image. Dogwoods are one of my favorites. Very colorful in the spring and equally so in the fall.

  1. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some good color this year. We have several dogwoods and they are beautiful this time of year. Last year we ended up going to Galax to leaf peep. I’m thinking about heading south on the BRP this time. Maybe Pilot Mountain? Is that a good spot?

    1. Yes, go south on BRP. Pilot Mt would look good from far away. But … one never knows. A bit farther, 2+ hours, is Blowing Rock and Grandfather Mountain in NC. Got to have clear weather however. Low clouds and fog can mess it up. Good luck!
