It’s that time of year again when summer is slowly fading away to reveal the cooler temperatures of the glorious fall season. Fall is marked by many things, apple picking, pumpkin patches, football games, and most of all the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves. Some of the most stunning leaves come from the Sugar Maple, Black Tupelo, Aspen, and the Sourwood trees.
If you love to photograph everything nature has to offer, then you are in your element during the fall due to its astounding beauty. You can photograph the changing trees on the ground, taking a slow walk through the park to smell the fresh autumn air as the leaves slowly turn crisp orange, bright red, and sweet yellow. Or you can take to the skies to photograph the fall foliage by air on your own hot air balloon ride. Wouldn’t that be just about the most fun you could have? The pictures you’ll get from your adventure will blow you away.
Many places throughout the country offer hot air balloon rides, especially to enjoy all the fabulous fall colors. It’s easy to go online and find Balloon companies or pilots in your area. Plus it’s less expensive then you might think. Get a group together, or just your family to spread out the cost a bit. They usually charge by the hour so you’ll have plenty of time to get some stellar photographs of all the trees while gliding through the crisp fall air.
Another option if you don’t’ have a hot balloon ride operation in the air, then you might just find a small airport in the area to hire a private pilot for a few hours. They can take you up high into the friendly skies to take as many pictures as you would like to. The vantage point from the sky will give you a whole new perspective on what the fall leaves look like from up above.
