Oregon Fall is truly a magical season. Nature comes alive. Colors explode. Cool air rolls in off the mountains. Cleansing scents fill the air. It truly is beautiful. Sometimes nature is just so powerful it speaks for itself. After a morning rainstorm, this tree just burst into color. Careful cropping of the image was critical —I wanted to just fill the frame with beauty. Photography is my tool for capturing the moment of pristine beauty and sharing it with the rest of the world. It’s a special feeling that I live for, every day of my life.
