Quintessential Autumn in New England

Orange foliage in New England

Autumn in New England

And There It Stood…

One thing about autumn in New England is that vibrant color can appear out of nowhere. Needless to say this splash of orange certainly grabbed my attention. I, in turn, wasted no time in grabbing my camera to capture it. Sometimes traveling the back roads of New Hampshire while in search of a specific covered bridge can yield a bonus or two. I certainly found one here!

The Perfect Backdrop

This lone tree seemed to tower over the little farm house comfortably serving as its backdrop. I loved the structure’s peeling paint and angular details. They were a nice contrast to the oval shape of the tree bathed in sun-drenched color. Those kind of details can really add something special to a shot.

It’s The Journey!

When it comes to exploring New England, the real fun and spirit of adventure is in the journey. Stumbling upon this glorious autumn tree while in search of a covered bridge was simply coming face to face with quintessential autumn in New England.

As for that covered bridge, I did find it! I’ll save that image, however, for another time…

    That is like the perfect tree! Then add the house, paint peeling and all, and the green background, how could you not photograph that!

    And the journey is half the fun. You never know what’s around the next corner.

      Thanks Jeff. I couldn’t have asked for more when I spotted it!
