Dying Leaves - Lake Waramaug State Park, Connecticut

Lake Waramaug State Park, Kent, Connecticut

Almost can't believe that we are halfway through the summer already. When I was browsing through my Lightroom catalog looking for images to edit, I came across this shot that reminded me of how fast this summer has sped by. Before you know it, the Connecticut countryside will be lit with the bright colors of dying leaves. This photo is from one of my favorite locations during foliage season, Lake Waramaug State Park. Located about an hour from my house, I can always take a run out there to see if the foliage is peaking. It is a very pleasant drive, and I have often driven there a few weeks in a row to get the best of the fall colors. This particular area is actually just around the corner from the park and is privately owned. The property is large and I wish that I had the run of the place to photograph it. Perhaps one day, I will get the courage to drive the very long driveway, knock on the door, and ask permission.
