Season changes in New England are always very dramatic.  When nature begins preparing the landscape for long, dark, cold days ahead, she leaves a special pallet of colors and designs that are barely noticeable but can, in fact, be stunning.

Grays of stone surround the pale rust of leaves.

These stones glimmer in the soft morning light.

Dried pods dot the hillsides ready to spread their seeds.

Shades of misty blue are even more dramatic when set behind a darkend forest.

Acorns cast their own tawny hues along the roadways.

Storm broken branches and cat tails form their own woodland sculptures.

Pine cones and leaves cover the forest floor with beautiful designs
painted in burnt umber, ochre and shades of beige.

This is my New England!

  1. These are absolutely beautiful. I miss New England - especially stones. I haven't figured out how to get pix on my blog. Will add yours to those I follow.

  2. The beauty of the pictures of Fall in New England brought the smell with them of nature's fresh, crisp clean air... So inviting to take nice hike or walk. In fact, you motivated me to take a nice Fall walk even though the landscaping by the ocean is a little ok, a lot different. We do have river rocks which speak to me. We do have leaves turning and the colors are exceptional. Love your blogs, keep it up! Thanks for sharing..

  3. Great perspective and photos.

  4. New England seems to be for all seasons. Thak's for sharing it with us.
