I’ve shared a few images of winter foliage that was a surprise to some. On Sunday while driving around before yesterday’s North Quabbin image, I spent some time in the Federated Women’s Clubs State Forest looking at beeches-Fagus grandifolia.
Here’s a little gallery of a few of the images from that time in the woods.
Eventually all color will fade just before the leaves drop and new ones burst forth from the tightly closed buds
but I did get what I needed.
I had hoped for a better sky but I was still happy to be standing at Enfield Lookout in Quabbin Park and enjoying this familiar view of Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. It’s a sight I never tire of even on gloomy dark days. All those layered hills and the mountain rising above makes the drive over well and wait at the gate worth it.
One of many reasons I visit often.
While I do enjoy making these winter images I am about ready for something a bit warmer.
