Morning Colors

Most days of the year an early morning objective of mine is to make an outdoor photo or two. Rain, snow, fog and overcast skies do not deter me. In April and May, and later in October and November, my mission becomes easier and more enjoyable because of changing colors of trees and vegetation. As an aside, both photos were made while seated on our front porch, looking east toward the rising sun.

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.
