Autumn is a season for self reflection, a time to gaze inward. The shortening days prepare us for the long nights and stark landscape of winter, before we reemerge with blossoming growth in the spring. Mother Nature paints her canvas with bright hues and golden tones bringing light and warmth to the cooling landscape. A lasting impression to guide us. It is a study not only in color, but texture, an artist’s playground. The palette is the perfect balance of earth, lake and sky. Five local photographers have shared their Autumn perspective with us.
