Faint clouds grace the blue sky on the oddly warm October morning. The last significant rain was in August and the forest is thirsty. Rain is required for a colorful Fall and so far the leaves have gone straight from green to brown leaving very little hope for the beautiful colors of the Appalachian Fall. To be honest, we’ve been spoiled the past few years by plenty of rain. But this September was dryer than normal. So I was pleasantly surprised by the spender of the maple trees at the scenic overlook in Mount Nebo West Virginia. The rich golden leaves stood out as I passed by and I knew that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. The leaves are normally bright yellow but the brown tinged edges give them this orange hue that’s very “October-ish”. The search for a good Fall photo this year has kinda been like panning for gold. I get excited to see a few pops of color here and there but most of it has been dross. Finding this scene was like hitting the motherload.
There’s still hope for more color as the seasonal winds begin to blow. They bring cooler days and with them a chance for rain.
