We don't get a lot of fall color in Texas. I wanted to add some bright colored leaves to my portfolio and set out to shoot one fall weekend. I flew to Virginia and then drove north until I found orange. The states are so close in this area that I crossed at least four states in one day.
The morning was blanketed with fog. So thick it felt like rain. I was pretty disappointed about the low cloud cover and just started driving around. I turned on what was basically a one lane road that looked to be headed up a small mountain. The mountain, or large hill, was called Spruce Knob. As I climbed and saw the curve of the road in my rear view mirror I knew I had a shot. The subdued light being diffused through the fog was perfect to bring out the fall color.
