While I’ve lived in different parts of the country throughout my life, having changing seasons has always been a constant. I find beauty in all of them, winter with the twinkling lights, fresh snow, and comfy sweaters, spring when everything comes alive and starts blossoming (also, spring has Cadbury Creme Eggs, which is hard to beat), summer feels full of adventure between beach days and stormy nights, but autumn has always been my favorite.
I’ve been breaking out my sweater collection slowly as the days have gotten colder, but it’s just started to transition to the air having the crisp scent of fall. That means it’s the perfect time to break out your cameras, camera phones, or whatever you prefer for capturing these precious moments, and exploring everything fall has to offer!
Personally, I love going for hikes this time of year, as well as visiting pumpkin patches and apple orchards. Sadly, I haven’t gotten to explore as much as I would have liked, but it’s on my fall to-do list.
Usually I take photos on my phone because it’s convenient, but when I’m out exploring during a sunny day, often that means I can’t tell if my pictures turned out in the moment, due to the light reflecting off my screen. If that’s something you frequently run into with photos (I’m talking to you, sunny states), I recommend our Nikon COOLPIX B500 16.0 Megapixel, as it has a high tilting LCD screen that allows for clear viewing, as well as getting to take shots at unique angles. It’s also great for taking nighttime photos, if you want to spend time outside star gazing before it gets too chilly at night.
What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about the 4th of July? The first thing that comes to my mind is planning BBQs with family and friends. But I was thinking the other day as we made plans for the day, that many of us don’t take a moment to reflect what this date really means to us who live in this beautiful country we call the United States of America. How it represents our freedom to do just that: spend time with our family and friends at BBQs, camping, swimming, and watching fireworks or whatever you’ll be doing this 4th of July.
