Recently we visited Komoka Provincial Park, just outside of London to take advantage of the warm fall weather and take some pictures of the changing fall colours. The park offers many walking and running trails along with some options for biking. Most of the trails we checked out were not challenging, although we haven’t explored the entire park just yet!

We were able to get some great photos of the changing leaves and other plants growing in the park. The timing of our walk was great as well as the sun was beginning to set.

Here are a few items to consider when trying to capture your perfect fall “shot”:

  • Try multiple angles focusing on the leaves, tree or plant from above, below or the side.
  • Consider incorporating other plants into the picture.
  • Get creative and try something different! You might be surprised with how your photos turn out.
  • Don’t be discouraged if the photos you took did not turn out as you had hoped. There are lots of great photo editing software options and often changing a few items in terms of saturation, contrast and lightness and darkness can make a big difference.

The fall colour palette is amazing with leaves changing into shades of yellow, orange and red. We only wish they would stick around a little longer. Before we know it the trees will be shedding all of their leaves for the winter. Until then we’re planning to soak up the fall colours and enjoy them while they last, including taking more photos!

What’s your favorite part of fall?

We want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Take time this weekend to enjoy the fall landscape and spending time with family and friends and of course giving thanks!
