    For cripes sake, it's only Oct. 12th. You just keep that white stuff out there with you, okay? Don't send it eastward, for crying out loud!
    George, last week end we were barbequing on the deck. Now we are getting a hard freeze. Not that uncommon for changes this time of year. A bit early for snow though. Not any real accumulation in this neck of the woods, but parts of Mich upper peninsula getting 1 to 2 feet. The four seasons here are: almost winter, winter, still winter and hotter than hell.

    Here are a series of some of my perennially good sellers of color change at Art Shows. They are also in my Gallery if you need to get information about the images.

    I took the Mamiya 645 up the Pino trail yesterday. I shoot the aspens on TMX with a yellow filter and the results are rather pleasing. The leaves look almost white. Seems the b&w are more interesting looking than the color shots. There was a bit of snow left from Monday. Unfortunately the leaves on the wet ground were rotting very fast. Also there are a lot of "tree-pods" to use. I shot a lot at 1/30 and 1/15 with the mirror locked up on the tree-pods. The 35mm lens gets most of it in and allows for some error when locking the mirror and then shooting. I wanted to bring a tripod but packing it into a wilderness area it was just too much weight and bulk.

    Timing the trip is difficult, if you go too soon the leaves are still green, wait too long and they all are on the ground and rotted.

    There fore to answer the question of where to take fall colours , undoubtley Muskoka and Lake of Bays have to be the best spot in the world.
    Bob, I agree, and can add the Bruce Peninsula. I remember being at a ranch/resort one year in autumn, getting up early and having a field day. The grey split-rail fences, mist in the morning ... colours popped and K25 was like heaven in a light-tight box.
    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    I am glad I am in Rochester and not Buffalo - they got 2' and counting! We missed the worst of it - a light dusting and it melted right away.

    Seems Buffalo is paralyzed - given this is a big surprise and I doubt they were ready since this is unseasonally early (in the regular part of winter, this would not have been a giant deal as they have tons of salt and high speed high volume snow removal equipment).

    As of yeasterday, I got some colors, though it was so dark that it is likely to be mighty grainy given the film I am using. And the trees seem to have lost a lot of leaves already - so it will be an interetsing exercise as long as it isn't an exercise in snow.......

    So the first picture is of Upper Tequomonon falls, but where's the other one? Both are very nice photos!

    Thanks. The second is the Tahquamenon River above the lower falls.

    Fall is my favorite season and that's when I stash a lot of color film. I like to get out when it is drizzling, or right after the rain. It is a completely different world, everything is nicely saturated. Maybe a few tips.... try double exposures, one sharp, one out of focus on the same frame. Or even better 20, 30 exposures on the same frame when is windy. You'll get that dreamy effect. Just don't forget to compensate with iso setting. Try very fast film...the grain can add a nice touch to the colors. Don't forget to try the polizer; it can do the wonders sometimes. Watch for the background, it can make or break the image. Try to play with the complimentary colors for your subject and the background. If you have depth of the field preview, don't forget to peek through before you click the shutter. Those things I try to remind myself when I shoot the nature in the fall.

    Cheers
