Local Saturday - True Colors

Again, for my readers wanting more fall foliage pictures taken in the Northeast United States, I am happy to oblige.

Last week, my guest photographer took a trip from where we live in upstate New York to Massachusetts.

She did all the work - I did all the enjoying of her photos sent after her trip..

Now you, my blog readers, will enjoy some of her fall highlights. 

Some of these were taken in upstate New York, others (I don't know which) in neighboring Massachusetts.

Brilliant trees.
Do good fences make good neighbors?

Fall is so precious here because it is so short.  I'm not talking about astronomical fall, but weather fall.  It's nature's apology for what is to come.  And, winter will come too soon.  Snow in our higher elevations is possible in tonight's forecast.  Today, a high of 44 F (6.6 Celsius). Tonight, a freeze, perhaps, low of 28 (-2.2 C.)

Once frost strikes, the color progression will accelerate.  Strap in.

More views of fall tomorrow.

  2. Sure are pretty. I can't believe are fall weather. It was above mid 50, so hubby and I went out to get firewood.

    1. We are below freezing right now, but it is supposed to warm up into the 50's for us over the next several days. I hope so. This was too sudden.

  3. Loved that first shot of the leaves in fall colour. How sad to anticipate the white-out that is coming.

    1. Well, we got the snow yesterday - no accumulation for us but some parts of upstate New York got over 6 inches (15 cm) of snow yesterday.

  4. Apt description of your short Fall season..."nature's apology for what is to come". Even though short, it is incredibly beautiful. Thanks for sharing the photos for those of us who have yet to have much change in scenery. I had to travel a ways to catch the changing of leaves....new pics and post on CITexas Gal. Happy Fall, Ya'll.
