Autumn’s Artistry


This year was the first time I really got the chance to capture the vibrant colors of Autumn using my digital camera. Most photos were taken by chance, rather than on outings specifically looking for colorful scenes of Autumn in my area. It is past peak time for leaf-peeping throughout the mid-Atlantic and northeast regions, according to Fall foliage maps on the Web site. So I am looking forward to next year’s round of leaves changing from green to many vibrant, warm shades.


I caught several images through a car window during light rainfall. The rain drops gave the view I had of the red leaves gave it somewhat of a mystical, ethereal look.


With a little luck, maybe I’ll get to do some Autumn leaf-peeping around scenic New England…which I have never visited before. I’ve always wanted my first visit to the New England states to be during the season of Autumn, a classic time to go. Another place I’d love to visit during Autumn next year is the historic New York town of Sleepy Hollow, along the Hudson River.
