My most favorite time of the year is FALL. When the leaves start to turn and the temperature starts cooling down. This year fall on the farm has been exceptional for capturing beautiful photos and it is also the time of year when the ducks start moving in.
Ducks are one of my most favorite subjects to photograph. They are beautiful animals with such vibrant colors. If you have never heard the sound that their wings make when they fly over your head and try to land you are missing one of the most awesome sounds there are.
The air in the fall here in Arkansas on the farm gets light and crisp and there has been many afternoons when the fog gets so thick you can cut it with a knife.
The deer turn the dark color of the brown sage grass and start to be very hard to see.
Even the fox squirrels are harder to see in the trees with leaves colored red, orange and brown.
Geese and Trumpeter swans start arriving in late December and stick around until late February.
One of the most amazing and beautiful sites that I have ever seen is the Trumpet Swan. Such beautiful birds with their pure white feathers and long graceful necks.
Turkeys start coming out more of an evening and these were looking for a place to roost right at sundown when the fog started settling in the valley.
The cattle on the farm also love the fall weather. They can take the cooler temperatures much better than the hot weather during the summer.
Fall sunsets here on the farm are amazing! Bright brilliant colors in the sky that cast colorful reflections on it’s subjects.
Looking through a camera lens has given me a new insight in the world around me. We as humans tend to overlook the simple things in life and the simple things are the greatest!
