I thought it would be helpful to show some examples of past years’ color display in Southern Colorado, for folks out there planning a trip to Southern Colorado to capture and enjoy the fall colors. These images and their metadata sure show that the range of seasonal peak dates have been all over the board. Keep coming back to this blog for up-to-date Fall Color Foliage Reports and information.
These are screenshots taken in Lightroom 4 so you can see the image data in the top left corner.
What I learned doing this research:
- Be ready anytime in late September through Mid-October for Colorado Fall Foliage to change color.
- Be prepared for snow (and cheer for it)
- Bring raingear, snowgear, gloves and a warm hat (this past Friday it was about 20 degrees or less up on Dallas Divide).
- Get out and STAY OUT.
Here’s a link to a very nice weblog about photographing in the Fall.
