The Colors of Fall

Here, in upstate New York, people are looking for the Peak Color on their trees. I'm not sure when that will be, and no one really knows how much color we will get after all the rain this summer, but be sure, we will be watching. Here are a few images to wet your whistle, and  inspire you to get those cameras (or iphones) out!

So get outside, for the next couple weeks, and enjoy the sun and the color. 

E-mail me any great shots you take and I'll show off your best.

Happy hunting!

I think Fall might be my favorite season. There's the crispness to the air. There are the pumpkins, and apples, and fall feasts. The heat of the summer is gone. The mosquitoes aren't, but nothing is perfect right? The nights are cool. The light is different too, due to the earth's rotation, the sunrises are more colorful, as are the sunsets. Then there is the foliage.

I enjoy the wispy greens and bright pink and white colors of spring, and it's the season of hope and renewal.But to me Fall is almost like the last hurrah before we go into the deep freeze of winter. Kind of like Nature's Mardi Gras. So here are some shots of the party:

As a new contributor to the Saratoga Snapshots Blog  I thought I should introduce myself.

that's me on the left and mr. peabody on the right

I've been an architectural photographer for 25 or so years, making a living photographing houses all over the county. If you'd like to see some of that work it's at I've also had much of my work featured in national magazines, books, and in local galleries.

our renovated farmhouse

I live on a small farm, in a 220 year old Farmhouse on the Hudson River (we just finished the renovation), just outside Saratoga Springs, with my lovely wife Lu, and our 2 horses, Mr. Peabody & Leroy, and Jerry the Goat.  

Here are the official portraits of all of us. Yup, OFFICIAL!  More about "official portraits" somewhere down the road.

"where's mr. peabody?"

I'll be sharing with you, on a regular basis, some of my photographs, and thoughts, and might even throw in a photo lesson every now and then.

Mr. P and I will be scouring the land, making some interesting photos to share with you.
