2013 in Review : Fall Colors in Western Md.


Before the new year starts, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the most viewed and most “liked” posts on this blog. I may also throw in a couple of my personal favorites that may have not received that much attention their first time out. For some of these Year in Review stories, I may add other photos or additional notes that have similar subject matter but did not run in the particular post the first time out. I will also provide a link to the original version.

For those of you who missed these posts the first time out,  I hope you will enjoy  them.  For those long timers  I hope you will enjoy taking a second look. Over the next week or so I will also be running new posts as warranted so please keep an eye on the ISBAA dailies.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this blog a success. Please see more text and photos below.

Fall colors offer an infinite number of photo opportunities, especially in Western Maryland.

image The top photo was taken of a small creek near the northern branch of the Potomac River. The photo above is of the north branch of the Potomac.

The weather was rather dreary when I shot these three images though the colors on the leaves were pretty saturated.

To remove some of the “drear” from the photos I shot them on the cloudy white balance setting which is almost like warming up the scene with a giant strobe. You can achieve the same effect in Lightroom or Photoshop.

Thanks for stopping by! Rob


  1. When I look that your photos here …. I know why I’m an autumn girl. One of the reasons why I couldn’t live somewhere that don’t have the 4 seasons. Pure magic your photos. *smile


  2. I believe autumn colours are my favourites in nature. You could frame these prints and hang them anywhere, and they’d ‘fit in’ with any interior design palette. Just beautiful, Rob!
