Looking for fall

The colors are slow to change here, and sometimes they just don't. Sometimes things will be just inching along towards a colorful display and then a frost will hit and all the leaves get kicked off the trees. So a couple of weeks ago, I went off with my hubby and our friend Kyle in search of fall colors. As it turns out, there is a great resource online for just such a thing for our area. We went out to Parowan, UT and took the gravel road up to Yankee Meadow and then onto the reservoir. The drive was relaxing and traveling through varying altitudes gave us a variety of shots.

I used my Polaroid SX70 Alpha camera for the square shots and my Keystone 60 Second Everflash for the others. I love that I can decide what mood I want by choosing the format and color tones based on camera and film choice. And, as always, I love unpredictable nature of using expired of experimental film. I mean, who would have thought that snow would come out looking more like a creamy sunshine yellow or that a field of aspens would come out so rosy?
