In one of the few nature outings I did this past fall, I focused on the dying leaves and other evidence of seasonal change that occurs here in Louisiana (yes, THAT Louisiana). It's not the rust colored beauty of the mountains in Vermont or New Hampshire but it's still nice to look at.
I photographed this short series in the early evening. The croaking of frogs and the crunching sound of squirrels scrambling across a blanket of orange and red colored leaves resting on the cool ground accompanied me as I set up my camera on the tripod. I love these moments, being alone, breathing in the cool air and listening to nature doing its thing undisturbed by my presence.
