Late Colorful Fall Foliage

leave a comment »

Every year state tourism offices post on their websites the days of peak fall foliage color. In Northeast Ohio that tends to be around the middle of October.

Fall foliage is a funny thing. You can get good color as early as late September and as late as early November.

Last year was a good for colorful foliage in Northeast Ohio in early November. In fact, some of my best fall foliage images were made the weekend of Nov. 5-6.

As you can see by the colors or lack thereof on the other side of the Cuyahoga River in this image, the foliage is past its peak in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. But there was still plenty of color if you went looking for it.

This scene was captured near the Old Station Road bridge over the river. The bridge is out of sight to the left. It was replaced by the bridge in the background, which carries Ohio Route 82 over the Cuyahoga River valley and is one of the most iconic and photographed structures in the CVNP.
