Fall at Elm Creek Park Reserve

Fall at Elm Creek

Fall is in full swing now, and is actually nearing its end. By now, most of the leaves have dropped. A few weeks ago though, Elm Creek Park Reserve in particular had great colors. There were a lot of yellows and oranges. I started at the Woodman Nature Center and hiked part of the Meadowlark Trail.

I struck out into a more open field to get this picture. For some reason, it’s one of my favorites from the day.

These bright yellow colors were prominent throughout the park.

It’s too bad fall colors are so short-lived, because they are fun to work with for photography, especially against a nice blue sky for contrast. But soon we will get the cool blue tones of winter instead. I wonder how this last picture would look with a foot of snow?
