188 days until autumn!

I know spring is just arriving and already I’m thinking autumn! Well to be honest, I was out photographing the fog on Salem harbor and around Derby Wharf this morning. All the places I tell you about usually look great in all seasons. So if you are coming here (not in autumn) then take a look at my pictures and read some of the articles. New England is a great four season region. Although the 5th and 6th seasons (Stick and Mud seasons are less than photogenic)

As you can see The Stony Brook covered bridge looks very photogenic in every season and is very approachable, even in winter (but high boots are a plus)

The big thing to remember is that, although I love my fleece and pumpkin spice coffee on a chill morning. I look forward to spring and summer as much as anyone else. If for no other reason than that, autumn follows close behind. Did I mention, only 188 days to go? 🙂

For those who like to think autumn year round, you can answer these below and put your answers in the comments. Of those who answer I will pick one lucky person to send a New Hampshire autumn leaf magnet… Hey! it’s what is in my grab bag of things I bought last fall!

Autumn year round — 7 Comments

  1. Ok Jeff, here we go:
    The sight of red maples on a crisp sunny day – best part of Autumn
    Waiting at the door in our neighborhood for all the little ghosts and goblins for Trick or Treat – Halloween
    First leaves falling, morning air has a new somewhat smokey fragrance, caramel apples at the store – Autumn is starting
    Witch – my ultimate costume
    The Exorcist – best scary movie (still gives me the heebie jeebies after all these years!)
    Coffee – black, thanks
    Neighbors in the 60s inviting us in and MAKING us do a trick for the treat (I know, creepy…they were nice though) – we told a quick knock – knock joke, got our candy and scooted out the door!
    Would love to spend Halloween in Jackson NH, all those pumpkin people you know
    Roasted corn with maple pepper – fav food
    Corn Maze? No too claustrophobic!
    PATRIOTS
    Eddie Bauer fleece vest, warm and cool as needed – accessory
    Skip the turkey, pass the stuffing/dressing – Thanksgiving food
    Autumn – a sunny day when beautiful leaves of red and gold drift down from the trees leaving a crunchy carpet on a trail to a brook or waterfall. Ahhh!!!

  2. Jeff,

    I won’t answer all the above questions, but the most important part of autumn to me is the brilliant fall foliage. I live in North Carolina, in the foothills near the Blue Ridge Parkway. There is/can be brilliant color in our mountains, depending on the conditions of the particular year. I also love gingerbread, typically a colder weather item.
