Central Pa Fall 2020
Just north of Harrisburg where Route 225 and the Appalachian Trail crosses Peters Mountain there is an overlook that I made a couple quick trips to, trying to capture the last of what was a very early and short fall colors season. Each time I did there was quite a bit of clouds and or haze in the sky as the humidity was quite high. Undeterred, I took pictures thru, over, and behind the haze trying to use whatever available light the clouds allowed to get thru. I have decided to perhaps make this a daily trip next fall as it is not far so I can try and be there when the colors and skies are at their best. After only 2 years of trying to get photos of central PA's fall colors I have decide that we have 2 separate opportunities. The first is the early fall when the trees that turn yellow are in full color and then later the oranges and reds come out, but to often, not before the yellows have turned brown or are on the ground. These photos are from the latter stage of Fall. Fortunately there are some trees refusing to give in and we had a couple days of rain the week before so the fields that were not yet plowed under provided some green tones that add nicely to the shots.
