    Default Adirondacks Fall Color

    It has been a long time since I posted an image in the landscape forum but I had my annual girls' trip last weekend and we went up to Lake Placid in the Adirondacks this year. For those around the globe, Lake Placid was the site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics and is about 5 hours drive north of NYC. We timed our trip well because it was peak or near peak for the fall foliage. The weather didn't cooperate as much with little sunshine except on Saturday morning. I took this one early Saturday at Heart Lake before the wind started to blow. Once the wind started to mess with the reflections I played with some blurs. I'll post one of those in OOTB.

    Canon 5D3

    C&C welcome and appreciated. Thanks,

    Rachel

    Lovely fall colors. The image is well balanced like the soft reflections in the water. I was there the last week of September and the color was no where near this good.

    Such a beautiful scene Rachel and well worth the wait for you to post here again! My only suggestion would be to darken the reflections in the lake so that they are of an equal or slightly darker tone than the surrounding forest.
