I just got back from a week in the Hudson Valley area of New York State where I did some shooting, attended a workshop, and got to spend some time with family and friends not seen in a long time! Also, I used Airbnb for the first time, and it was a positive experience! We got there a little too late for the peak fall color change, but there was still some good areas, though you had to work for them. I always find it harder to get good shots the first time I visit a location, unless I am shooting with someone who knows the area well. Otherwise, it’s hit and miss and lots of research, but well worth it!
Driving in a state park, constantly looking for possibilities, I found this little cascade just off the road. A nice patch of lovely golds, and the little creek.
