October Surprise  by Jim Kuchler

November 2019 - October Surprise

About the Image(s)

Southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois received an October surprise recently. During the peak of fall colors the region experienced an early snow fall. This scene caught my eye when I arrived at an office. It seemed like a wonderful contrast in seasonal color featuring a corporate logo. The company corporate communications group used the image for social media and winter driving safety.

I caught this with an iPhone 8 and processed the photo with the mobile smartphone application Snapseed.

Great capture. Are the leafs really that bright and red?
I have never see them in nature. They are stunning.   Posted: 11/08/2019 11:26:47

It's beautiful! The vibrant orange of autumn leaves at their peak time and the fallen snow are a rare scene to capture. Your company has made a good choice for safety driving in winter by using this image.
Congrats, Jim!   Posted: 11/11/2019 06:13:18

The bright leaves are gorgeous against the snow. In my opinion, you made a smart choice to shoot the company sign in such a pretty setting. Congrats, on having them use the photo for their social media!   Posted: 11/22/2019 12:23:17
