Fall in the Blue Hills

My first blog - how exciting!
This year the peak of the fall colors seemed late. Having lived in northern Wisconsin (Sawyer and Rusk County) for over 20 years the colors often peaked in the last week of September. The week started out with a few rainy and cloudy days which were the perfect conditions to get nicely saturated images. No wind was an added bonus to get clear reflections in lakes. By mid week we had strong winds and a hard freeze on October 1st. And with that the glorious fall colors almost came to an end. Many maple leaves turned brown on the edges or dropped. In more protected areas little frost damage is visible. With nice and warm weather coming I hope we can enjoy this wonderful season for a few more weeks.
Some of my first images - more to come.
