There have been a few questions about what foliage is like in Spring here in Western Massachusetts.  I’ve posted some examples previously and here’s another.  After the maple and moon and colorful clouds over Amherst last Friday, I headed down the hill to do my senior shopping but stopped for this view.

The sun was playing peekaboo behind clouds but every so often would hit the mountain. Of course the low angled light from the rising sun warms things up quite a bit. How I wish the sky to the north was behind the mountain but disappointing as it is I still wanted to share this sight.

  1. That is amazing, because in this particular light it looks like fall colors.

    If I’d seen the photo without commentary, I’d have said it was taken in autumn. Ambiguity: thy name is nature.

    Low golden light can certainly fool us into thinking it was autumn!

    It seems everyone has the same take on this, and I’m another. There’s no limit to what the warm light of a low sun can do to practically any subject. And I like it that you left the high-key sky in.

    • I am not surprised most see it that way and it was my intention to show the effect. But it’s not just the sun. Here’s one from last year where the sun hasn’t hit the foliage yet in the early morning.
      I wouldn’t seriously consider pasting in another sky although I am sure it isn’t difficult.

    It’s really hard to believe this was taken in Spring!
