October Therapy : Autumn Glory, Part 2

Will winter EVER come!

Tall Yellow, Dummerston, Vt

It seems like it was about this time last year that I complained about our snow less December and wondered whether we would be forced to look at barren stick all winter. Of course we then we proceeded to have one of the snowiest winter on record. Accordingly I am a bit reluctant to start whining once again, but I am running low on autumn images to process and a little snow would be nice. New England weather has a definite mind of its own and in the meantime I will share some of my favorite images from the glorious second half of October.

This week it is my turn to produce another article for the New England Photography Guild blog and happily there are plenty of fall foliage pictures to go around. In my Guild article I collected ten of my favorite images from the entire season. It was an impossible task, to be so limited, but I don't have the same restrictions within my personal Getting it Right in the Digital Camera blog" and gush forth with even more of the great color from this year's season.

It is wonderful that, in retirement, I don't have to restrict my shoots to a few weekends and the brief snatches of color in the fleeting evening hours, but there are still demands which competed with my shooting. These included the preparation around my Digital Photography course, the assembly of a show at Brewbakers in Keene NH, work on a number of different projects including for the Savings Bank of Walpole and a office display for Deep Roots Massage in Keene and a number of special order fine art prints for the holidays. Over several days toward the end of the month we had a lovely trip to Newport RI and a visit with our son in New York City. The distractions were may, but fortunately the color and the weather was great and I got a reasonable dose of autumn therapy.

The pictures here come from the second half of October, but are only a sampling and primarily from two day-long shoots. For more you can check out my NEPG Blog or my more expansive Autumn 2016 Gallery on my web site. It is all a bit overwhelming, don't worry, by the time you become thoroughly sick of the oranges and golds, everything will be blanketed in the crystal pure monotones of our glorious winter.

I always run by my favorite farm, Roads End Farm in Chesterfield, New Hampshire for varied foliage and majestic horses:

A tour through Marlborough, Dublin and Jaffrey New Hampshire started overcast and ended sunny.  Both conditions offered unique opportunities.

Ok.  It's time to put autumn to rest.
