The Last Shades of Autumn

The colors of Autumn are rapidly fading at the base of the White Mountains. A trip today into more northern New Hampshire, on Route 16 toward Mount Washington, found many trees on the hillsides already turned to brown. This did not dissuade many leaf-peepers, with a plethora of the vehicles seen being from Massachusetts. If color was their goal, they may have done better on the Mohawk Trail in their own state.

I made this photograph in Eaton from the town beach, which is within a few miles of where we live in Freedom. I guess I could have stayed closer to home, but my wife wanted to get out after a day or so of rain. Camera in hand, I obliged.

Until next time...
