Welcome to day 303 of 365 photos…I haven’t seen fall colors like this since we moved here. This is the 3rd year that we have been here. Of course, the first year, we stayed in Maine until November. I didn’t set out today to look for fall colors. The day had been pretty drab so I decided to head to New Bern to see what I could find for a daily photo. I was delighted that the sun peeked out just as I arrived at around 4. I took some photos by the river and then took some more in town and then headed home.
I had noticed the fall colors of the trees on the drive to New Bern but as I headed out of town, I was struck by just how pretty they looked in the setting sun. I just have to show the fall colors for my photos tonight. I will start with the one that I took in the middle of the drive home. This is in Pollocksville. I don’t think that boat has not moved since we lived here but it helped to make a pretty photo.
Camera: Nikon D7100 – Lens: Nikon 18-300mm

I stopped for gas while still in New Bern. I paid $2.74 a gallon there and it is $2.89 in Swansboro. Just saying’! As I was gassing up, I turned around to this.I turned onto route 58 towards home and just outside of Maysville was the group of trees below. Light was fading by then but the sky was still quite pink. No, that is not snow in the field. That is leftover cotton. The amount of cotton left on the ground AND on the sides of the roadways amazes me. Seems like a lot of waste but what do I know? 🙂 Well, there you have it. It is not the color that we see in New England but it looks pretty good to me.
Glad that you stopped by my self-project of a photo a day for 365 days. If this is your first time to my site and you wonder what this 365 days of photos is all about, click HERE to read the original post. Settings are added to the photos so that I can remember what I’ve used and can see if any future photos done with other settings turn out better or worse. Remember, this project is all about my learning more about photography.
