Are there any fall colors left?
I think you will find fall colors in Southern Vermont and southern NH (Lakes region) In these areas, you will find pockets of fall colors. I posted on the fall foliage, Facebook page about really good color in Dummerston VT and on the Deerfield river off the Mohawk trail.
On 22 October, I saw good color (not great) on/near I-90 around Worcester MA. And I saw good color as I was passing Sturbridge MA. Earlier in the day I drove down to Essex Connecticut where I joined photographer Mark Spremulli who is an expert on this rail line among others.
He is a well known fixture there, and he and I were allowed to photograph the cab of the 2nd steam engine that the Essex Steam Train — Valley Railroad runs. It was thrilling to hear the whistle blow as the Number 40 steam engine rounded the bend or crossed roads along its run up to the ferry and back.
There is a lot of color down in Connecticut as of yesterday afternoon and as I drove up through Brooklyn Ct to Pomfret I saw good but spotty color with bright reds and then dull reds. It wasn’t until I hit Pomfret on Route 169 that I saw some strong orange color and along with interesting barns to photograph but I had lost the light.
I would also bet that on the other side of the state in the Litchfield hills you will also find nice color, (but nothing to back that up). You see good color for me is usually GREAT fall color for most other leaf peepers. So if you are out on a drive then southern VT/NH, Central MA and many areas of CT and RI should be considered for a fall foliage drive this weekend.
I held a contest on Fine Art America and the winner gets posted in my blog. If you would like to see the other images of fall foliage that were entered follow this link to “your best fall foliage”.
