Yes, the colors are changing. More rapidly now. So I left on a hike, took my point and shoot, and headed out. It wasn’t raining when I left home, but I was headed for the Columbia River Gorge, so all weather is expected. As the saying goes, “wait ten minutes and it will change”. So I took my rain gear. It started out foggy, but turned to rain soon after I got on the trail. The good steady soaking rain. Not a downpour. Pretty much all of me got wet by the time I was done, but it was great. I had the trail mostly to myself, even though I had left later than normal. I met lots of people on my way back, though. The camera survived, as did I and the raincoat. My glasses had a hard day, they kept fogging up. Guess I will have to try Rain-x or something similar. All in all, I had a good day, the photos were not too bad, the colors were bright and saturated just like the leaf images show. Those were right out of the camera. All were for that matter. I only brought out the highlight detail that the camera tends to blow out on days like this. It’s true, don’t let the rain slow down your photo journey.
