We have been having a spectacular fall here in the Northeast. October has been a near perfect month with warm daytime temperatures and cool nights, with no frost yet. The deep blue skies have set off the colorful foliage beautifully. So on Mr. D’s. birthday which was last weekend, we set off on (another) foliage drive. Even though some of the color was fading in a few areas it was still quite beautiful, and I was able to capture a variety of scenes with my camera. Come along with us for a ride.
For my readers who live in parts of the world where nature does not put on a show like this, I thought you might like to see some of what we experienced through my photographs.
A group of kayakers were out on the river, enjoying a beautiful day. A short distance from this scene we came upon an old covered bridge spanning the river. The following photos are from that spot.
One car at a time can pass through this bridge.
Continuing on our drive, we came upon another old farmhouse, beautifully maintained. Note the stone chimney.
Another bend in the road brought new sights:
In New England there are many stone walls. Constructed by hand to mark property boundaries, you see them everywhere, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one along a river bank like this.
Red barns are a common sight. This one has an unusual round window on the side. The weathered barn in the center is attached to the back of the house, seen at the right.
At the end of the day, a scene in my own back yard. As I look out my kitchen window, I see this tree set “on fire” by the setting sun. Gorgeous!
Hope you have enjoyed the day’s outing with us.
