The Photo

Board walk in Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park during autumn season.

Story Behind the Photo

Catching the peak autumn colors is like dream come true for most of us. As I noted in Day #9 and Day #10 photo stories, we were on a week trip to Upper Peninsula area and were lucky enough to witness the peak colors.

Every nook and corner of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park was filled with colors. It was truly a breath-taking experience. Out of numerous board walks inside the park, the beauty surrounding this board walk caught my attention.

Composing such scene is a no brainer because of the leading lines that are formed by the board walk. Vertical composition  made me to fill the frame with peak colors and removed uninteresting portions from either side of the frame.

Facts from Wiki

The Porcupine Mountains, or Porkies, are a group of small mountains spanning the northwestern Upper Peninsula of Michigan in Ontonagon and Gogebic counties, near the shore of Lake Superior. The area is part of the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. The Porcupine Mountains were named by the native Ojibwa people, supposedly because their silhouette had the shape of a porcupine.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Photo Story. Have a Great Day Ahead!
