Weekly Photo Challenge : Masterpiece

coloronroadRP

For me, the greatest masterpiece produced by nature is autumn‘s colors. (please click to see more photos and text)

Every October we usually get up to the Deep Creek Lake Area for the Autumn Glory festival. Sometimes the leaves cooperate and turn during the festival though lately its seem to be happening a week or so before schedule. On a good year, the colors are amazing.

I shot the photo above early one October morning while on a drive around the lake. I practically slammed on my brakes to park when I saw this scene as it was something I did not want to miss.

To me, this picture says fall and reminds me of everything beautiful about that time of year. You can see a little sliver of the lake at far left but the leaves are the star of this show.

The church steeple photo was taken in Accident, MD during another fall trip.

I really liked the way these orange leaves appeared to frame the church top.

The photo below was taken along Deep Creek Lake very late one fall afternoon.

  9. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I have always loved autumn colors. This year I’m living in Los Angeles though, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to fully enjoy its blossom. Very nice pics Rob!
    What camera are you shooting with by the way?

  10. I’m lucky enough to love in Southern California, but I’ll admit I dream of living each season in different parts of the world – San Diego definitely does not get those rich autumn tones in our greenery! Thanks for sharing your beautiful images!
