Photographing Fall Colors
It’s that time of year to go out and take pictures of the Fall foliage as it changes to beautiful reds, yellow and oranges.
To help you get the most out of your shooting, I’ve pulled together the following links.
http://www.flagstaffwebcam.com/Leaf-O-Meter – You have to love a site called Leaf-O-Meter. They put up photos of leaves changing color in different areas around Flagstaff that are sent in by visitors to their site. They also have a link to self-guided tours.
http://www.flagstaffwebcam.com/fall-foliage-guided-tour – This site lists some good places to go to get photographs of the leaves changing color in and around Flagstaff.
http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/recreation/fall-colors/sandra-klotz.shtml – This Coconino National Forest site explains why leaves change colors, what trees produce what colors, and hikes to see this wonder of nature.
http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/recreation/fall-colors/aspen-watch.shtml – Every week photographs are added showing how the leaves are changing color, from the same four locations in Hart Prairie. Old photos are left up so you can see the changes, week by week.
For the rest of the country
http://www.weather.com/maps/activity/fallfoliage/index_large.html – The Weather Channel has a map of the U.S. showing where the leaves are changing colors.
There’s a National Fall Color Hotline too 1-800-354-4595. Call this number and choose the area of the country you’re interested in and get information on leaf color, scenic drives, peak times for the colors, other fall activities.
I hope you get some fantastic photographs this year.
