Lucky dude am I; I have a pair of autumn hangouts with a number of potential areas offering fall photography opportunities; Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains is one hangout, portions of Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, and surrounding preserved natural areas, the second.
Fall, 2011 has not been the spectacular season of other years, but, as I get older, I grow more acutely aware that there are no guarantees about tomorrow, nor, about tomorrow itself; so, as at other times of year, in autumn, I go out with my camera and try to make the most of what's available ... sunny, overcast, drizzle ... every type of light offers its own possibility for interesting imagery.
Earlier this week, the forecast Pocono Mountain "peak fall foliage" days arrived ... and I was there. I expect that within the next week to ten days, the peak down here in Philly will arrive ... and I'll be here for that as well.
So far I've processed about 50 +/- good (publishable) Fall, 2011 shots. Here are some for this Foto Friday ... more either in this article or, in follow up articles ahead.
