Oct. is one of the prettiest months in New England, colors of every hue grace the land. The crisp fresh air, wafts of hay, apples and pumpkins fill your nostrils as the countryside changes colors on a daily basis. It's an artist's dream. :-)

This is one of my favorite fields...I would like nothing better than to take a horse across it. The view in the background isn't half bad either. :-)

Thanks Ronnie, tomorrow i'm going into the mountains for a Country Fair and hope to get some nice shots. If they have helicopter rides again, I may get brave and go up with my camera. The last time I was there they had them but I didn't have my camera with me...this time i'm going prepared!! :-)

Great pics, everyone! Jen, I like that happy barn. Too bad you couldn't have stopped and zoomed in on that. How neat! Love the fall pics from Longwood. That oakleaf hydrangea is really pretty.

I went for a walk with Gretchen and the dogs last weekend at a conservation area. There was some nice color. Other than that, I have not done much fall photography this year. Here are some pics.

i do not get color on all of them every year so it helps to have a lot of them, some are more consistent than others, japonicum's are very reliable.
