New England Autumn 2015

IMG_5033_4_5_6_7

It’s that time of the year again, when New England rocks with spectacular colors under a blanket of glorious sunshine! “Round abouts,” (as is said in the colloquial), this is when we follow the time-honored and cherished activity of leaf peeping.

Having had some time off recently, I managed to get quite a bit of photography done. This is the first of eight posts showing the glories of this year’s autumn show. But please don’t feel that you have to look at each one. The ‘Like’ button will only be activated on this, the first post, so enjoy the rest of the postings when and if you want.

And by the way, that ‘leaf peeping’ activity? If nothing else, it helps us prepare for the long white, winter blanketing that is just ahead!

As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does all the heavy lifting in selecting the photos. And thank you sincerely for dropping by the Book of Bokeh. I would also like to invite you to visit my Book of Pain  poetry blog.

    • Thank you! It has been a great autumn…we are very lucky this year. Bold oranges and striking reds are everywhere and no wind or snow storm to rip them from the trees to early.

    • Ours was early this year and come on in a rush…in part, I think to the dry summer we had. So as soon as it turns a little colder…

      Good luck! Looking forward to your pictures. 🙂

        • I know! Me too! It was like yesterday I was looking forward to spring. For us it was not a very hot summer, so I think that is the difference. No long stretches of it in the high 90’s or 100’s with humidity. Two or three days, that’s all.

              • It was really bad this year as the temperature had risen to 50c (in some states) and killed many due to the heatwave.
                I’m a winter kid and I love winters…no matter what. 🙂

                • I had heard news reports on how hot it was. I have been in the low 40’s temperatures and that was brutal…I cannot imagine what 50 is like!

                  But how do you get experienced with winters? Although I would guess that northern India, as it gets more and more mountainous towards the Himalayas must start to get colder and snowy.

                  • Yes, that’s right John. The winters are colder as you reach up north. Other places experience cold due to chilly breeze. Delhi has hot summers and equally cold winters. But of course, no frost bites and all.

    • Lucky me, as usual! I think it was the dry summer that has helped, but you are correct: it has been a beautiful fall this year! 🙂

    • Thank you! It has been a good year for fall foliage this year…I suspect it was our August/September drought. It has since ended many times over! 🙂
