Looking for that perfect Autumn day

autumn.jpgFall is by far my favorite season but, for this photographer, a perfect day requires three elements. (1) The foliage has to be at its absolute peak, (2) the sky needs to be crisp and blue with little or no wind, and (3) I need to have the day off.

2004 had several of these perfect days but 2005 was a complete washout. Today was close, except that Ile Bizard is still a week or two from peak colors. I’ll check out the Bois de Liesse later today but it’s probably too early as well.

I am determined to make 2006 a banner year for Fall photography and I am perfectly willing to forgo #3 and take a day off if the conditions are right. Unfortunately I can’t be everywhere at once and different areas will peak at different times. If you visit a hiking trail or nature park within an hour of the city and notice that the conditions are as perfect as they’ll ever be please leave me a comment. I’m especially partial to red and orange. To make it worth your while, I’ll send anyone whose suggestion leads me to photographic nirvana a print of my best shot of the day.
