If you have never taken a trip along the Natchez Trace Parkway, I recommend doing so. In addition to slower speed limits, the Trace does not have the clutter of signage or businesses, which makes for a pleasing travel experience.
I recently discovered a Fall Foliage Photo Contest on a website called Natchez Trace Travel. On my day off last week, my husband very graciously accompanied me on a photo outing, so that I could try for the contest.
I submitted the most allowed, and of the four, they accepted three pictures as entries. Whether or not I win anything, it flatters me that they chose some of my pictures.
I mentioned in my last post that I think the fall colors show up better on overcast conditions. The day we did this photo adventure, it was very sunny out, and the colors were already fading.
The photo conditions didn’t really matter, though, because we had a lovely time together. I am SO THANKFUL for the blessings of a wonderful husband!
Mississippi has many trees; most are pines and oaks. The pines and other evergreens bring year round greenery, but the large numbers of oaks make for much leave raking in the fall.
We ended our journey near the Pearl River, where we also discovered a nice picnic area for future enjoyment.
While the purpose of this trip to the Natchez Trace was so that I could take pictures of fall colors, I found a lovely surprise at one of our stops. In fact, I ended up taking as many pictures of what I found there as I did of scenes out on the Trace. One of them is my other entry in the contest.
But you have to wait until my next post to see my unexpected photo opportunity.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
