New England Colors

Last weekend I went to visit my daughter in the Boston area and did some exploration of the surrounding area. In most places the colors are beautiful at the moment, especially closer to the ocean at lower elevations. At the same time in the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont most of it was gone, just grey naked trees. I did take a few photos in Vermont which I’ll try to process in the near future (another new state under my belt) and share with you guys.

Today, I’m following with another photo taken with my little handy Lumia 1020 phone. I had to lay down on the ground to take this photo, otherwise I could not compose it well. Good thing the road is one-way only, with 25 m/h speed limit and I could see and hear them coming, so there were no risk to my life as I was taking it, laying in the middle of it.

This is taken at the Acadia National Park, on the Park Loop Road, a pretty drive where you can stop at a lot of places and explorer surrounding woods, enjoy a nice hike into the mountains or to the rocky cliffs over the ocean with some spectacular views. Photo of the Sand Beach that I shared yesterday was taken from the hike on the Great Head at Acadia National Park. It appeared to be a good time to visit this park, it is pretty much end of the season and summer crowds were gone, the Bar Harbor was fairly empty, parking in the park was plentiful and very few people on the trails. Very nice time to enjoy it all. Plus you see this is in full beautiful color. Can’t beat that.

Click me!!! I'm better at high resolution!

    Nice touch, the yellow leaf randomly crossing the white line.

    We love Acadia! And there’s nothing like standing on Cadillac Mountain to feel as if you are on top of the world! http://ohtheplaceswesee.com

    This angle is fantastic

  4. The fall colors create beautiful vistas for us to see. Nature a its best.

    Wonderful picture, (and from a phone camera – they sure do perform!) I love the perspective, and the contrast of the white (birch?) trees on the right, and those on the left. Road level photos can be most impressive, as long as you can tell about it later!

    I grew up in New England and there is nothing quite like the fire of the colors up there! Glad you had a great trip and caught a little bit of leaf-peeping season 🙂

  7. The contrast of the road with the colours of the trees makes this a fantastic shot!

    Love how you angle the photo! Gorgeous fall colors!

  10. Beautiful photo taken at a great angle!

  11. Beautiful! It never gets old, taking pictures of fall color in New England. The same trees aren’t the same colors every year, and it’s always so amazing and crisp.

  12. I absolutely love this! The color, perspective, and path symbolism are fantastic!

  13. So love this shot and the way you took it. We were doing Coastal Maine for the first time in mid to late September. Color was just starting on our way home. We managed to run up and down Vermont and New Hampshire, as well. Trees, baby, trees.
