Remember that Peak is a continuing process, where the trees turn color, reach peak and then the colors fade to rust or gold and fall to the ground to provide a light workout for us which prepares those of us who get snow for heavier exertions later 🙁Also remember that not every tree turns at the same rate. I was out on Tuesday seeing what color was out and about in the Merrimack valley and I think I found lots of color. From a single red maple on 1A in Topsfield to an orange and yellow maple on a nearby back road.
Many of the nearby trees to these example are gone by and bare but you can still get out and find those examples that are late to the party! Remember past peak doesn’t mean gone as this final example shows
Colorful reports are still out there, at least till Sarah arrives!Reports of color down in Boston are filtering in and I would head to anywhere along the south coast to view the last vestiges of bright fall colors. Of course if you find really good colors please stop into my fall foliage page on Facebook and submit your image.
Even if you are home from your vacation, you can show us what you found (don’t submit all 1240 images) 🙂 but a few here and there is fine.
I was finding color all the way along my trip on this past Tuesday and if you traveled along route 127 which hugs the coast between Gloucester and Beverly Massachusetts you will find, at least until Sunday some very nice colors.
Print winner for September
I’d like to announce that I have my first international winner that I picked on 30 September. Ms Jenny Myers from Australia. now the fun part is how long it takes for her to get her print. the post office said something about a slow boat from China. She chose a covered bridge shot from Sturbridge village which you can see below.
The end? I don’t think so!I don’t think we’re at a dead-end yet! Even though this gentleman seems to think so.
Every year we get down to the bittersweet end of fall foliage and I have to ask myself “was it all worth it?”. next week I will be posting my final look back on this year’s fall foliage with lots of images and my thoughts on what I found.
If you have any thoughts on what you found this autumn and you’d like to share them put them in the comments below and maybe I’ll try to add some of your comments to the final wrap up.
but people call me Jeff Foliage.
I have several pages that I write blogs for such as: http://www.4cornersnewengland.com/
My most popular blog is for Leaf peepers: Jeff Foliage.com.
I live in Salem, Massachusetts and work as a blogger and Travel Photographer. I'm also the founder of the New England Photography Guild.
Feel free to visit me on my blogs and see what life in New England is like.
I started with Yankee Magazine as their first blogger on everything fall foliage. Now I blog on my own blog on my favorite subject, telling leaf peepers where the fall foliage is showing up in New England and helping them (to some extent) plan their fall foliage vacations.
