Chasing Autumn at Catoctin

Congress was out of session in October to give members time to campaign for the November election. I took a few vacation days and used the opportunity to get out and shoot some fall foliage. Here, at the end of October, I drove out to Catoctin Mountain Park in Maryland. Catoctin is a national park that is relatively close to D.C. It also happens to be where Camp David, the Presidential retreat, is located.

I didn't actually go anywhere near Camp David, which is off limits to park visitors anyway. I wanted to shoot the sunrise at Chimney Rock, which is in a different part of the park. As you can see, even though it was late October, many of the trees had yet to turn. Nature decided this year that autumn should begin a month later. Nevertheless, it was a very pretty sunrise and I think I captured some great colors.
