Even when we don't get the colors, light, or other conditions we are hoping for, there are always other ways to manipulate the photo.
I'm not talking about editing the photo and changing the green leaves to gold. I'm talking about using compositions that manipulate what the photo says.

The Park Service has built a nice bridge right next to Juney Whank Falls that allows the hiker or photographer to get close to the falls. The yellow and red leaves stuck to the rock face caught my attention. Instead of taking a picture of the entire falls, I chose to zoom in on a small section with those leaves and some white water. I think this photo has an autumn feel with the little color that there is.
Another opportunity to manipulate the mood through composition is the picture of this small rock in a stream.

No need to manipulate a photo in software. You can change the story the photo tells by paying trying compositions that are different from the obvious, getting the right angle, paying attention to the light and getting a bit creative.
