Photo of the Month
The summer went by with a flash and now it is time to enjoy fall in Northeast Iowa. It is one of the best times of the year to enjoy the cool nights, warm days, less humidity and beautiful autumn colors. Peak fall color occurs in Northeast Iowa, on average during the 3rd or 4th weekend in October. This year with the warmer weather and rainy summer; the colors were not quite as vibrant in the years past, but I tried to take advantage of the colors that were out while they lasted. I usually like to photograph the brilliant river bluffs, but this year I decided to hit the gravel roads and see what beautiful countryside Iowa has to offer! It was amazing seeing the vibrant colors against the golden and green fields. It is also the time of the year to get those classic hay bale pictures. This picture was one of my favorites that I took this month. I loved how the light shined on the bales, with the vibrant orange and yellow colors in the background. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the beautiful fall colors like I did.
Now that it is the end of October, the colors are starting to fade and the leaves are blowing off the trees and winter is right around the corner. Take a moment to check out my past blog from January 2016, refresh up on winter photography tips and you will be ready for the first snow fall!
