Plan B

I had a morning to myself last week. I woke early and grabbed my gear and headed out with the hopes of visiting the upper falls at DeSoto Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forrest. After arriving at the park I realized I was a dollar short of having the full parking fee. Being honest and almost an hour from anywhere, I went to visit Helton Creek Falls again. Helton was just a few miles down the road and I keep an annual pass for the state parks. So, parking was not an issue. The colors were starting to turn. But, they are far from full brilliance. The few hours of fresh air behind the lens was time well spent.

Autumn North of Florida

Autumn leaf. Cumming, GA.After living in Florida for the last 20 years, I will be spending my first autumn in Georgia. The leaves have already started to change color and are slowly making their way to forest floor. I plan to take advantage and explore every opportunity I can manage.

This leaf got an early start on the others and I was fortunate enough to find it. I know for those of you that have been able to enjoy this season year after year it may seem a bit ordinary. But, in the land of pines and palms there is no real fall season. I hope this season leaves me with a few opportunities to get some gallery images.

This image was captured with my 105mm f/2.8 micro. As always thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave your thoughts. You can follow my blog and see gallery images at my site:
