1. A little fall juxtaposition from Indiana, which seems to be peaking in color this weekend. (Oct. 20), at least in the central part of the state. Shot with the Vivitar Series 1 105 macro, processed with a bit of exposure blending.

2. Edited to add second shot, about 1/4 mile away from the first. Same set up.

Travis, if you don't see what you like, just head down in elevation. I know the CNPA (Carolina Nature Tog Assoc.) has a meet planned for DuPont Forest on Sat. Hopefully they have local info that told them it would be good there. Places like Whitewater Falls and all along the escarpment should be good. I'm heading towards Atlanta for a gymnastics meet tomorrow! lol

DuPont was nice for color...we were there at the complete wrong time yesterday...the sunlight on all of the falls was terrible...We were there 6 hours...I didn't even take 40 photographs...only 1 or 2 that I might do anything with.



This one was from Wayah Bald Friday night, great place, but better suited for sunrise than sunset, the observation tower is on the east side, and lower than the trees and rolling hills to the west...but looking south I got a decent bit of golden light...

I can really see the Oklahoma dust that came through that day. Sorry about DuPont. I've only hiked there but it is a place with lots of potential. Where else did you get to?

Sounds great. I love the 215/BRP area. Hope you post some of those.

It was a really nice area. I will have a thread or two in the Landscape Section for them. Might throw one up here today to show the color in that area and DuPont...I bet the 215/BRP area was peak last weekend. The reds were mostly gone, but the yellows were in full display.

Smokies Update.

Foothills Parkway East - 50%-60% But, this 50%-60% is just past peak even though the other leaves haven't turned. I think this is due to the leaves starting to turn, then the temperature warmed up and slowed things down.

Wears Valley - 10%-20%

Roaring Fork Motor Trail - Just past peak

Cosby Campground - Just past peak

Foothills Parkway West - 60%-70% which are just past peak

In general, the colors aren't as good this year, but every once in a while, there is a great looking maple. (At least, I think they are maples.)

BTW, the tourists should be pretty much done by the end of the week.

I'd like to put this here in addition to the thread I made for C&C purposes. Colors in the Smokies are as good this year as I've ever seen. Try to get out there soon if you're close!

The colors in the Stevens pass area were fabulous over last week. The peak is gone and leaved welted specially after the first snow Sat/Sun. Here is one from my recent trip there

Cataloochee has already dropped it's leaves. But, the road to Cataloochee still has some nice color, as well as, along interstate I-40 through the mountains between TN and NC.

For the most part, the BRP above 4500' is now mostly bare. What color remains is in the lower elevations in and out of the gaps. This pic was taken this afternoon around 4000' in elevation near Balsam Gap.
