It Was a Cold and Rainy Day

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. It was a cold and rainy afternoon and that was my attempt at humor. I asked my husband if he wanted to go for a walk in the woods to capture the fall color, while we still have it. We bundled up and went to one of my common photo locations; Asylum Bay.

Before we went, I asked Google where in Oshkosh there would be good fall color. And surprisingly, Asylum Bay was first on the list. For some reason, I got it in my head that there wasn’t much of a variety of trees there, so I didn’t think of it.

We crossed the bridge and walked on the island where the lighthouse is stationed. Only, we went in the opposite direction of the lighthouse. There was a trail that took us through the wooded area to the end of the island. While I was making a TikTok, I saw this view, and thought it looked cool.

I love the contrast of the yellow leaves against the dark brown bark.

For some reason, I also look up from the ground, to capture things that are not much taller than myself. But I hardly ever think of looking up at the leaves. Hopefully, I’ll get to go out a couple more times this autumn before the leaves fall, or we get more than a dusting of snow. If I get lucky and get one more photo shoot out, I’m going to try and remember to take more photos like this one.

Once we got to the edge of the island, I looked across the bay and saw the red, green, and yellow of the trees. I personally like the image on the left a little bit better. Which one is your favorite of the two?

Before we headed out, there was one more photo that I wanted to take. I wanted to get a shot of the bridge we crossed earlier with the trees in the background. This may be one of my favorite images that I’ve taken in a long time. Depending on how well it prints, I’m hoping to add it to my inventory for next year.

  1. Nichole I love that photo of the yellow leaves and the bark. It reminds me of looking up at the heavens with the way the light shines through. Very nice photo!
