Autumn Foliage — 2015

Filed under: Autumn — Tags: , , — Frank @ 2:00 PM

Last week, I took drives on three different days in search of autumn foliage to photograph. Finding the ideal combination of foliage and light (both quality and direction are important) is not trivial.

Last Wednesday (the 7th) the foliage in our ‘neighborhood’ was good, but not yet peak. Thus, I decided to head north. I meandered as far as Rumney, NH before turning around in the late afternoon. The weather was not completely cooperative but I made a few nice photos before the clouds moved in.

Friday (the 9th) dawned foggy and rainy. I took the camera with me and after finishing my errands, I wandered the back roads on the way home looking for interesting photographs.

Saturday (the 10th), I took an indirect route (via South Newbury, Bradford and Washington) home after I finished photographing the meeting house in South Sutton.

  1. Except for a small stretch of the MA Pike and a few trees in my local cemetery, I have not been impressed with this year’s foliage. I see one great foliage image from this group and a few other passable ones. i don’t think this was a very good year because of the drought conditions over the summer.
