Autumn Paints the Monongahela by joerossbach Autumn Paints the Monongahela by joerossbach
Don't worry, it's coming! This is a shot from several years ago from the summit of Spruce Knob in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia. The day brought very cloudy weather in the morning, but by the time the late afternoon had rolled around the sky began to break up.
I sat on the summit for several hours watching the play of clouds, light and shadow across the forest. This was my favorite shot from the afternoon, as the forest below became bathed in soft diffused light and the clouds above marched across the sky, I captured this image.

I have just released a brand new eBook, 10 Tips for Amazing Autumn Images, just in time for the fall color season! - [link]

Lovely sky. Can not appreciate the foliage texture -- again, too small.

Must be incredible to have autumn colours like that, almost all our native trees in Australia keep their leaves throughout the year so our landscape is very different.

This is beautifully done, great job. I was out in Morgantown for three years, and this reminds me every bit of the fall beauty that resides there.

Where are you in reality? I may add - inside cities as well?

Great capture - if you live too long inside cities it might happen you forget about forests.

Your deviants (not really deviant but for me very important) are always helpful. And I am surprised there are so many with this spirit here - what happened to me?
