Welcome Fall! Yesterday I celebrated the first day of fall by looking back through last year's glorious day on a photo shoot in Bernheim Forest. This photo is from the canopy walk over the treetops. A wonderful view that had me feeling a bit nostalgic. With the extremely dry weather this year we may not have this color. And then there was missing my good old boy Willie the Pit Bull who was my shooting partner for this day. When the trees turn, I'll take Chet to Bernheim Forest for a photo day, but he'll have big paws to fill.
