Late October is this year’s best time to view autumn’s peak performance in the color department in my area. Some foliage has already dropped their leaves, leaving branches bare, while others have not quite fully morphed into their deepest autumn colors. This is Mother Nature’s way of extending her color performance for us as long as possible.
One of the best places to capture colors of the autumn season is in a Japanese garden. If your local area has one, take the time to visit. These gardens are magnificent in color this time of year, and are prime material for the nature photographer. A modest sized garden usually has various species of Japanese Maples that exhibit the best samples of autumn color, anywhere. Not only color, but form and structure, as the images below will tell.
