Now is the time to take your camera out to photograph the fall color displays among the groves of aspens and big cottonwoods around northern Nevada and the eastern Sierra. The weather is changing, so don't wait or all the leaves will be on the ground.
The timing can be difficult to guage as it is different every year. I've found peak color as early as the middle of October and as late at the first week in November. You can't really tell by what's going on in Reno, either. I recently took a drive up to Hope Valley south of Lake Tahoe - some of the trees were already bare and some were still brilliant yellow and orange. At the same time here in Reno, things are just getting started.
There are lots of fall color photography places in the mountains around Lake Tahoe and along the eastern Sierra. If you hit them just right, you'll be rewarded with some outstanding shots. If you can't get out and about, you won't be disappointed with what you can find right here in the Reno area.
