Autumn in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Dicks Creek Falls-Toby Gant-2014

I’ve been able to get out and explore this week. The leaves are changing in the North Georgia mountains. What is normally a beautiful area becomes truly stunning with the changing colors.

I captured this image of Dicks Creek Falls using my 24-70mm f/2.8mm, tripod mounted and using a circular polarizer. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Beautiful photo, as always, Toby! Looks like the colors are coming in. Here in western Oregon, we don’t get the spectacular colors I used to see in New England. Our native Big Leaf maple turns yellow and slips away with the daylight hours. Occasionally one sees a planting of non-native sugar maple, and the riot of oranges, red and golds.

      • I haven’t seen any in the foothills where I am, but it seems as though we should have some in the upper elevations. I am at about 800 feet. Oregon State University lists Quaking Aspen as being native. We have a lot of (very tall ) Douglas Fir, some redwoods, lots of oak, big leaf maple, ash and cottonwood in my area.

  2. What a peaceful image and the beauty of Autumn so well captured. The waterfall looks so soft. I admire your photography and look forward to follow your blog and be treated to more! Thanks for visting my blog, Johanna
    ps the photo on the banner is a winner too!
