With the arrival of fall comes a wide variety of ever changing weather. While hiking on warm sunny days is lovely there's something to be said about cool dark drizzel-y days; the colors seem to be so much more saturated, the tree trunks darker, and the smell of damp leaves surrounds you. I especially like these sorts of days to photograph running water - no blown out highlights and I can get my shutter speed slow enough to exaggerate the flow! This photo was taken yesterday at Wooster Memorial Park just before the rain started.
Although it's been a rainy week, take some time to explore the outdoors in the rain, with proper boots and a jacket you'll find rain hiking is just as nice as hiking on clear sunny days!
