I feel like we were cheated out of fall a bit this year. But given the shortness of the season, I'm extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to enjoy the few days we did have. Here are some photos from my few fall excursions.
I've always suggested the Lexington Cemetery to clients as a location for photographs. When I worked for another studio, I can remember talking to a lady on the phone. She said, in a thick country accent, "Y'all take pictures in a graveyard?" I had a hard time convincing her that it was a really beautiful place especially during the spring.
So, a couple weeks ago my mom came to visit and she said "Can we take a drive through the cemetery? It was so pretty in the spring I want to see what it was looks like in fall." I reluctantly agreed. I've never thought to go there in fall.
I was blown away by the pallet of colors. I'm so glad my mom suggested it, and luckily I had my camera with me.
The following weekend some friends and I traveled down Loraine, KY to visit the Maker's Mark Distillery. Nestled down in a little valley, Makers Mark loaded with classic Kentucky imagery.
We took the distillery tour, did a bourbon tasting and even dipped our own bottle. It was an awesome field trip on a dreary, rainy day.
Now almost all the fall color is gone, and Christmas is looming. We've already had a significant snow (aka: a good dusting. It is Kentucky), and although I feel fall was way to short, today I'm going to tie up loose ends and prepare to embrace winter even if it's early.
