The weather has started to cool, most of the flowers have finished blooming, and everything is very green with a splash of colour as the leaves begin to turn. With the cooler weather we change our activities from kayaking to hiking the trails around Ottawa and the Gatineau. With the season change from summer to fall, my focus changes from colourful flowers to colourful foliage. This photo was taken on the Sugarbush Trail in Gatineau Park.
We were hoping to get in a hike between rain showers. The sky was overcast which was great for photography on the water and in the woods. I used a long shutter speed to smooth out the water. As I was taking this picture a storm was moving in fast. We could hear thunder so we headed back to the car. Unfortunately the hike was very short but I was pleased to capture this first sign of fall.
