Are you ready? It's time for our 14th annual photo contest! Enter your best pictures of the year, for a chance to win a calendar and annual subscription here. Hurry! Deadline for entries is October 21.
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. ^_^
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!! ^_^
Thanks Ladies -
I like to lurk in the Northeast forum because I am still a brooklyn girl at heart! I was so hoping to see some fall colors posted this year and here they are!! Very appreciated. keep em coming. no matter how I try and no matter how great my photos come out --- still can't capture the awesome-ness of what my eyes see in the autumn.
Beautiful, you guys! I just love pics of fall colors. I haven't taken much at all this year so far, but there really isn't much yet. Lots more color in Maine, I see. Here are a couple of links to my albums in FB of pics I took last year, and one from 2010.
1) Osho Shirade
2) Shirazz after sandy - very nice fall color the last two years
3) Okagami - similiar to bloodgood
4) Close up of the leaves, just turning color now
5) This little beauty is Akita Yatsubusa
Here are a few more fall color shots. This time i decided to just show wide landscape shots so you can see all the leaves on the ground and not just close ups of individual trees/shrubs. The big rake begins this weekend.
i guess because my land slopes down to the pond and is in a protected little valley there is a micro climate back there - funny thing is all the sugar maples, birch, oak, and hickory have lost all their leaves.
Beautiful fall colors, Karen and Bill! I can't wait for my tiny viburnums to make a contribution! JMs, viburnums and dogwoods are just great together, Bill, and the leaves on the ground are still colorful.
