It is always a bit of a gamble when you commit to a Fall Higher Ed Photo Shoot . Everything from weather to the school calendar come into play. Now it is possible to narrow down one of the factors, peak fall color, thanks to technology.
The 2018 peak fall color predictor came out this week. This interactive map provides approximate dates for peak leaf color as fall progresses from north to south in the United States. It is a fascinating visualization of summer being pushed down by cooler weather.
The fall photo shoot is an important one. Colleges and Universities are alive with energy. The personality of the institution is on full display and ripe for photography. Hope that the fall color predictor takes a little of the guess work out of the planning.
