I wanted to get some shots of the beautiful oranges, reds, and yellows that I have spotted recently while out mountain biking, but I believe our recent cold snap and winter weather made the leaves change too rapidly and I missed me shot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not blaming Mother Nature for this one, I just missed the opportunity. I want to become a better photographer all around (not just cookies and cupcakes) so I have been trying to take my camera with me to more places and not feeling awkward for doing so.
Last Monday I drove out to one of the locations that we ride, camera, camera bag and extra lenses in tow, and walked for over an hour. (On the bikes I can cover a lot more ground! But putting a bag that expensive on my bike? Oh yeah, that would be the day I lean how to take a fall.).
So, the leaves weren’t as vivid, and some of the branches had gone barren, but it was worth it.
