Prelude to Fall

Julie Hall’s photo captures the beauty of the changing seasons.

A resident of the Colby Lake area since 1991, Julie Hall is a longtime photography enthusiast. “I took some photography classes in high school and college. Prior to an Alaskan vacation in 2013, I took one through community education to refresh some of my photography skills,” Hall says. “That’s when I purchased my current camera, a Nikon D5100.”

Hall used that camera, with a 300mm lens, for this colorful photo. “This was taken on my front steps,” she says. “I enjoy gardening, so I take lots of pictures of my flowers.”
