Morton Arboretum

Every season has its perks when it comes to photography. You may have noticed I love photographing flowers, so summer is excellent for that. But I think my favorite season to shoot is fall. Lots of blue skies. Soft, low angle sunlight. And of course, colorful changing leaves. Today I spent four hours at Morton Arboretum in Lisle, IL (about 40 minutes from my place) photographing all the beautiful colors of fall. While I thought the colors would be at their peak this weekend, I actually think it will be next weekend. That's not to say there weren't plenty of colorful trees in all stages of transformation. From the vibrant oranges and reds of the maples, to the deep purples and rusts of the oaks, to the brilliant yellows of the ginkgos (which smelled like absolute shit) there were bursts of color all around. Below is the first gallery of two. I captured some amazing stuff so it was hard narrowing it down. That means two super-sized galleries for you. Check out the other gallery here. Enjoy!
