You know those family photos that show a mother and son walking in a trail with a wonderful foliage? I am talking about those distinct photos that we see every fall. Kinda like this one. The trick is to know when and where you’ve have those brownish leaves. Well, the trick is to know how to shoot :), but knowing where and when you can find the leaf color that you desire is part of the thing.

Fall Foliage Prediction Map does just that, it provides a visual representation of the foliage color by state. As you move a date slider across a map of the US, you will see what are the dominant leaf colors for each state (or area).

The map covers the fall season from August 29th to November 14th: here is a quick view of it:

The site give plenty of other foliage related date, like the reason that leaf actually fall, what happens to the fallen leaves and the chemistry behind the changing colors. Just in case you wanted to know the scientific formula of the color that you are shooting.

The other part is nailing the right time of the day that will suit your mood, but now that you know where, you can figure out the when.

    While the northeast is the most famous for its beautiful autumns, Colorado has the most stunning season I’ve ever experienced. It’s a genuine fall SEASON, just as this map shows.

    And the map says I’m in the green — even when the entire rest of the country is dark red.

    I miss the changes in seasons, but living in Pensacola, FL I am close to the Alabama border as well as the south Georgia border….so it’s just a short drive to see lots of colors. No need to hate Florida….in the winter when everyone else is freezing, we are hanging out at the beach with soft, warm breezes. I was raised in IL and had ENOUGH of freezing my butt off. More like my toes and fingers and nose. 30 below zero is for Eskimos, not for me.
