Classic Fall Color

Capturing the best of autumn takes a combination of skill, preparation, timing and equipment

Try A Photo Tour Or Workshop
I definitely suggest workshops and photo tours. In short, it’s like hiring a guide to take you to the best places, and it’s worth the expense, especially if you don’t know the area. Traveling from one place to the other when timing is critical can be somewhat daunting, and the workshop or tour operators take care of this. They will have researched the whole area to make sure you’re in the right places at the peak of the color.
