Sometimes too much rain can actually help with photo opportunities and this shot is an example of that. There is a walking path that goes right beside these maples but thanks to heavy rain, the creek which is to the right was high and runoff was collecting in several low areas. The water provided a good reflection and the sunset contributed as well. I was wearing muck boots which are about a foot high and after I finished shooting I was walking on the path in about 8 inches of water when I must have ventured off the trail and found myself with water cascading into my boots.
Love your work! Enjoy seeing beautiful Lancaster County! I moved to Florida over 20 years ago and you bring back many memories for me. So glad you are back to posting more. Take care!
Thanks a lot. that is the Ephrata park if you familiar with it.
I love this photo, beautiful!
Thank you Don
Into each life some rain must fall. Not sure if you and I can relate but that’s what they say.
Certainly, nice observation.
Donald, you take such beautiful photos. Words cannot describe how picturesque all your photos are. I am fairly new to Lancaster County, and I love every one that you have sent out! This photo with fall colors and sunset and reflection is very very special.
Just wanted to give you a hearty “thank you”!
Thanks Carl, welcome to Lancaster county. I used to do quite a bit of Amish stuff but been a little off my norm this past 6 months. thanks for following along.
Loving these last couple of photos of yours. Hoping things are going well for you right now. Keep up the great work!!!
thanks Joe, hope you had a good fall photo experience.
Enjoyed this scene! And thanks for sharing a bit of what you went through to get it. Sometimes “the hard times” make us appreciate the picture more. Sorry you had to get wet feet.
thank you. for some reason every photo shoot disaster I ever had involved water in some way.
The soft lighting creates such a peaceful mood. Nicely done and deserving of the response you’re getting.
I wondered about that. it has gotten a decent response.
Another outstanding photo!! Thanks for posting! Hope your days are a little bit brighter as well.
thanks, have a couple coming up I am pleased with. A little brighter perhaps. at least I went out once.
