Leaf Peeping, 2105 Edition

This is a good time of year to live in New England. We have been blessed with wonderful weather since Labor Day — lots of warm days and cool nights. Last Saturday, we put the top down on the Miata and went in search of freshly squeezed apple cider, pumpkins and foliage. We found all three!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day with a piercing blue sky and temps in the low 70s. Not a cloud anywhere all the way from Albany to Attleboro. We agreed we would stop the car every time we saw something worthy of photographing. We must have hopped in and out of the car at least a dozen times during the afternoon.

Let’s begin with the pumpkins we saw. The low, slanting sunlight of October highlighted them perfectly.

Next up, scenes we stumbled upon as we drove along the backroads between Chepachet and Putnam, Connecticut. The foliage was simply breathtaking!

We got home as the light was failing, having had a wonderful ride in the fresh air. We marveled at all of nature’s beauty we saw during our journey and then we stepped out onto our deck that overlooks the lake and saw this incredible scene. Just had to share this with you. Enjoy!
