Late Fall

Late fall has a beauty all of its own. Most of the leaves are gone and what is left lacks the brilliant color of peak. Just the same, the blankets of leaves covering the ground, the starkness and the contrasts are beautiful in themselves. It was a cold and rainy day and the rain added that something extra worthy to take some pictures.

I was driving by Houghton's Pond and the storminess of it all just beckoned.

No one out but the crows!

Fall in New England is always so nice. The foliage, the harvests, wonderful farm stands, so much to see and do. The weather is nice, not to hot, not to cold and nice and dry.
Apple picking has become a yearly ritual, along with the hunt and excess consumption of perfect Apple Cider Donuts!
While 'peak' foliage wasnt quite this far South yet, still fabulous, the rows and rows of apple trees and the beautiful colors surrounding the orchids.

With so many varieties to choose from, one must try sampling several varieties to find your favorites.

A drive by snatch!

This year we checked out a new orchid. This was a nice non-commercial place and low spray which definitely made for some funky stuff.

A Hawk soaring over head.

Some interesting color.

At another farm stop, the Pumpkin harvest and some cool critters.

Vermont, The Queen of Color, Part 2

It had rained a better part of the night and when it finally stopped and day light broke, I was out the door.
The rain had magically enhanced the world around me and all the trees and the hills were bursting with color. The sky was completely overcast and the forecast was for rain. Once again, had to run around and take more pictures in a whole new light.

Heading off to Montpelier, I was hoping for more great scenery and photo opportunities and I was not disapointed.
I loved these big pines standing strong at the crest of the hill.

And into the Valley, the fog rising out of the hills and the Valleys.

Vermont is famous for its covered bridges and these people had their own.

Vermont is also known as a dairy state and most important in making my trip complete, seeing some cows. I love Cows! Needless to say, when we came up on this pasture along the road, I was ecstatic! Girls!! A field of Girls!

Unfortunately after the quick trip to town, time to head back to the farm and ready to head back to Boston. Way to little time with so much more to see, roads to travel and even find those LGD's working the farms. ;)

As I hadnt gotten any good pictures of cool old barns, while driving out of town, snapped off a few shots along the road.

Quite the foreboding sky, time to head South.
