One of the distinctive qualities about the fall in Milford is the beautiful colors that blanket the yards and streets around town. Local artist April Abel has been busy capturing the warm, welcoming colors as the trees begin their transformation from spring to fall.
“I photograph nature every day,” commented Ms. Abel. “We have had an exceptionally colorful autumn this year, in spite of the hurricane. The beauty of the light and the leaves was just begging to be captured. ”
April earned her Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts at Wesley College. Introduced to the art form by Joseph Mullan, she was opened to a creative and expressive world that she had always hoped to experience but had not yet found entry into. In the spring of 2012, she set out to photograph the marshes and wildlife of central Delaware capturing images of the coastline, the sunrises and sunsets, and the migratory birds, otters, muskrat, and deer that make their home there.
