Green October

In mid-October, I made the trek over to Shenandoah very early in the morning. It was a beautiful morning. Well, all mornings in Shenandoah are beautiful, but this was an especially beautiful morning. The clouds were perfect and I got some really great color in the sky. I love such mornings. However, one thing was quite strange. In a normal year, all of the leaves would have turned by mid-October. This year, the trees were still very green. I attribute this to the oddly warm weather we'd been having.

After shooting the sunrise, I went for a hike on one of my favorite trails, viz. Whiteoak Canyon. I've shot Upper Whiteoak Falls before (spring and fall). This was my first time hiking further downstream and shooting Lower Whietoak Falls. It was very pretty.
