Chocorua Lake in New Hampshire in 2017

Last year, I visited my good buddy, Larry, at his new home in North Andover, Massachusetts.  I timed it so I could find Eastern fall foliage to shoot. One of my photography passions is shooting the wide spectrum of fall colors which is not as common in northern California.

So, Larry was patient and kind to chauffeur me around the surrounding areas in search of scenic fall foliage. We stumbled and found Chocorua Lake at the end of day in New Hamshire. I love the orange, gold, red and green colors in the leaves.

I always strive to shoot the photos with the light in the background.  It is ideal to shoot as the sun is setting since the light is more subtle.  One has to be quick to get the ideal light before the sunsets. The spectacular lighting is the key for your photographs.  Also utilizing the natural light to highlight your scene is essential. Also there is a certain glow in the leaves which makes this scene pretty.

Sunsets are great to experience. Hope this post will encourage plans for an outing to enjoy the special light at sunset and take some great scenic shots. Scenic photos are one time events to capture, since the exact scene is only temporary.
