I am guessing that yesterday was the peak for fall colors at Brown County State…
When will the fall colors peak in Indiana is the great mystery and the subject of many conversations. Maybe next week? The last few years, the peak has been closer to November 1st.
We have had several dreary days (according to Alexa) with mist and rain that is badly needed. I almost asked Alexa yesterday what is a dreary day, but was afraid she would tell me to go outside! Today we had sunshine, so I ventured out just before sunrise. Driving to my location, I saw fog and drove a little faster. Fortunately, the traffic going my direction was moving faster than me and I never had to slow down.
At my third location, I managed to drop my lens hood and it rolled about 20 feet down a steep hillside before lodging in some weeds. I no longer do steep hills after having two partial-knee replacements. I asked a much younger photographer if he could help me. He came without hesitation and retrieved my lens hood. I do not know his name, but want to thank him again.
We have several days of rain in the forecast, but I may venture out one rainy day. I still need to check some locations further south in Indiana that I have scouted for fall shots.
The fog in the hills and valleys this year is just magical. I was able to photograph fog for two hours after sunrise. All these photos were taken at Brown County State Park.
