Fun Friday: Fall’s Peak Colors

Today’s post includes a couple of images I captured yesterday, after returning from a last-minute trip to Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks for some fall photography … more on that later.

A few days earlier, when I left for my photo trip, the leaves around my rural Missouri home were making some big changes. But when I returned home yesterday, two maples that sit on the south side of my home, immediately behind my butterfly garden, were in blazing colors!

And the fall colors in my butterfly garden include a mum, a dwarf burning bush and lots of small, purple asters.

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love getting out and finding things to shoot in the fall colors, rather it be wildlife or landscapes!

In my coming posts, I will be posting some images on my fall color trip to the Lake of the Ozarks, particularly at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, a beautiful location to visit in the fall!
