Change is in the Air

Change is slowly creeping across the northeastern landscape.  The lush green leaves of early summer are now insect damaged, worn and torn, and some are beginning to show a spot of color foretelling the coming change of the season.

For those pursuing whitetails with the camera, the time for photographing bucks in velvet is drawing to a close.  The antlers are nearly fully developed and withing the next three weeks most bucks will have shed.

And the Pa elk rut is just around the corner.  Typically the last two weeks of September will see the most intense rutting activity.  If you are planning a trip to Pennsylvania's elk country to see and hear the thrilling action it's time to make your overnight reservations if you haven't already done so.  And if you love viewing wildlife and have never experienced the elk rut make plans now to visit Pennsylvania's elk country and observe the most impressive wildlife show the Keystone State has to offer!

Change is definitely in the air here too. Some of the low-lying areas had frost a couple of nights ago and more and more yellow is showing up on the trees. Visiting elk country and seeing the elk rut was certainly one of the highlights of our trip through PA two years ago!

There are signs of fall,but the temperatures the last few days do not feel like fall. Love your pictures.

We're feeling the change as well. Have already had our first frost...but many hot days since. Harvest is drawing to a close, and the morning air is crisp. Great shots today, Coy!
