NW Autumn Landscapes
17 images Created 16 Jan 2013
Autumn is a special and perfect time to be outside in the Pacific Northwest. The air is crisp and temperatures are lower. Fall comes first to the subalpine habitats of Washington and then gradually works down the slopes to the edge of Puget Sound. At high altitudes the heather and huckleberry meadows are interspersed with mountain hemlocks forming a fascinating patchwork of color. Many flowers are rushing to produce their seeds before winter comes. Fog is common at this time of year and creates a peaceful feeling to the environment. The color, the design and the fog create interesting opportunities to capture the serene and tranquil sense of the landscapes in photographic art.
