Default Fall in the Cascades

headed east on the North Cascades Highway yesterday looking for some fall color... found a few places showing some nice hues, but was rather disappointed at the lack of color at the higher elevations. hardly any vine maples to provide the red, but plenty of yellows and oranges... all shot with the 5D and Tammy 24-135, various settings...

a hillside east of the town of Concrete... the morning clouds hadn't burned off yet, and were still clinging to the hill tops...



a small farm along the Skagit River...



fall color along Canyon Creek...





got east of the mountains, and found a one-lane gravel road just west of Winthrop that i'd shot several years ago... the reds weren't so much in evidence this time around, but the golds were definitely out... these were shot well after sundown, and the 8-second exposures don't give the colors the 'pop' they'd have in brighter light, but by the time i got this far east it was getting pretty late...

Rocky,

Have no words for the sublimity of the two fog pictures. At this moment, in the beginning of the month of October, I wish I could do something like that. I find comfort though, knowing that such pictures already have been made
