Fall is undoubtedly one of the best times of year for photography. Each fall season, photographers flock to the mountains of the west, to the deciduous forests of the northeast, and even to the desert southwest in search of epic color and light.
What if we told you, though, that one of the best kept secrets of fall is located in the bayou of the American south? You heard that right!
Today, Backcountry Journeys is happy to announce a brand new trip offering to one of the great hidden gems in the United States for landscape photography.
Each November, the cypress swamps of the south offer a fiery red and orange display of fall color. They transform into one of the most unique landscapes you’ll ever see or photograph. Fall in the south can offer excellent weather conditions as well. Ambient temperatures often drop below lake temperatures, which can create a mysterious pairing of fog and mist with the brilliant colors.
