Every year it’s like I fall in love with fall all over again, and I just cannot get enough. It’s infatuation, really, because it has a bit of a dangerous side.
During peak color weeks, it’s not unusual for me to be found pulled along the side of a windy Wisconsin road, crouched in front of my old Ford Focus, snapping photos of fire-colored leaves with golden sun streaming through or beautiful thorny brush entwined in forgotten fence posts. I frequently stop 4, 5 & 6 times along the same narrow road depending on the light and loveliness of the foliage. Even if I’m late or dying to get home to see my family – I cannot help but get out of my car to document the beauty from abandoned driveways or field entrances.
