This has been a great autumn in eastern Massachusetts. A short slide show of images made today within ten miles of my home.
Does Vermont have a lock on the best autumn? Could it be the barns, rolling hills, dirt roads, white trim, cows, tractors, rocking chairs….? And, all that maple! This shot is from a trip through the state in early October a few years ago. Click here to see a larger version, purchase a custom print or to license this image for commercial use.
Today I explored some favorite locations in Essex County, Massachusetts, chasing the afternoon light and a painterly effect. This view is from The Hamlin Reservation managed by The Trustees of Reservations. This wetland is drained by The Labor-In-Vain Creek. Love that name! The image maximizes tonal range by combining three separate exposures.
Warm, late afternoon light, shimmering reflections, and all is right with the world at this moment. If you love this photograph share it with friends. Click image to purchase an archival print or to license the image for commercial use.
Just as I was thinking that the fall colors this year were not very vibrant, I ran into this.
