And so it begins! I just love this time of year, the cooler air settles in, there is a crispness about it that breathes new life into me. I find it more and more difficult to drive as my eyes are drawn to the symphony of colors that lay before me. Even though I know it is coming, I am always, always amazed at what beauty is around me. I am blessed!
I have heard it said that there is no place for fall foliage like New England. I agree with that wholeheartedly! It is time for me to head out with my "real" camera and take some new photos, but for now those I have taken with my cell phone will do. (I am planning a trip in the next few days with my camera, I can't wait to see those!)
Getting fall photos means being ready to hop in the car at a moments notice when I see those colors are at peak. It is hit or miss, and each day brings more and more color to us.
The first three below and the one to the right are everyday scenes for me as I walk Georgia behind our home in New Milford. The sun is coming up later and later, and it can be difficult to get a shot if we don't time it right! The last photo was taken the other day at Candlewood Lake while I was out on caravan. Imagine the lucky people who get to see this all day long right outside their windows!
At times I might be jealous of those who are able to post seaside pictures on a regular basis, or moutains that take your breath away. Then I stop and look at what is right in front of me. And I realize that there is beauty in everything, everywhere. From a tree beginning a show of fall colors, to an old abandoned tractor tire, and of course, Candlewood Lake.
