More like the ‘Yellow Leaf Road’, the trees are shedding their colors fast this year. Timing is never easy. I routinely check the progress of the leaves throughout the end of October. The park isn’t at its peak color phase yet. I’d give it another week.
People always ask how I get the Mall Area, in New York’s Central Park, without people. Wake up early and wait for a rainy day. Cloud cover is better anyways. It reduces the tonal range of the image to range the camera captures more comfortably.
