One my favorite places to visit during every season of the year is the Japanese Gardens here in Portland. The garden seems to change each time I visit, details that I missed the last time. I think fall is my favorite time to visit. The turning leaves, the chill in the air and the colors that are vibrant even during a foggy morning.
My camera club took a field trip once and during that magical morning we all took some amazing photos. A light fog over hovered and a flute player up in the hills over the garden that seemed to float down. Whoever that was, thank you! That is day of photography I will never forget.
This photo is one of my favorites from that day….
