One of my favorite drives is my fall leaf trip around Mt. Hood. Every year, armed with my camera, we drive around Mt. Hood to shoot pictures of the turning leaves. Last year it was a little difficult to catch the colors before the rain knocked the leaves off the trees. We caught couple nice days, one in October and one in early November. I shot the photo at the left, shooting upward to catch the sunlight shining through. We missed most of the reds but caught lots of yellow and browns.
Then there was an October a couple years ago, that I was shooting up at an entirely different tree…from Waikiki Beach.
