Fall (or Autumn if you prefer) is a season I have very rarely experienced in my entire life. I grew up in the desert (UAE), then the years I’ve spent in France, I lived in Toulouse, away from woods and forests. And now I live in Thailand, with its tropical climate and 3 seasons (Hot, Rain and Smoke)
So when I went on a holiday last month (October) to the US, it was really my first time experiencing the changing leaves and the beautiful colors during what now became my favorite season.
I was lucky I arrived at the best time, when the leaves were slowly starting to change. A few days later after we’ve left, most trees were already naked. I also am happy I got to wear extra layers of cloth with gloves and scarfs instead of just t-shirts and flip-flops like I do in Thailand.
I leave you with a few extra photos from this beautiful season. Don’t hesitate to share them or Pin them if you like!
As often, Fall is associated with Halloween and Thanksgiving so there are often decorations in front of houses with pumpkins and ghosts.
The first few days we arrived in Kentucky, the weather was really cold (about 2C/35F) with frost in the mornings. It was a nice “break” from Thailand’s hot weather.
An abandoned canoe near Rough River lake in the state of Kentucky. A lovely place to relax and enjoy the changing leaves.
Some more pumpkins and an old watercan in front of a cabin. Loving the old gritty texture!
There’s something really amazing about the morning light (The Golden Hour). It’s even more accentuated during fall when all the leaves are already in different shades of warm colors.
Tobacco leaves hanging in an old barn waiting to be fire-cured. Natural tobacco contains lethal amounts of nicotine and need to be cured before consumption. In Kentucky, farmers hang the tobacco leaves and set fires of hardwood inside the barn during a few weeks depending on the process and tobacco.
Beautiful reflections of fall colors on the Rough River lake in Kentucky.
A beautiful scenic road with amazing colors in Kentucky. I don’t like being in cars for too long but it was a pleasure admiring the view during this time of year.
Early risers fishing on the lake while the beautiful golden light covers the whole area.
Even a boring empty field can become a beautiful subject if you look for different angles and the best light. This is one of my favorite shots of this trip. It was taken early morning, while I was crouching in a field covered with frost, waiting for the rising sun to get this beautiful golden light.
