09/28/2020 Misty Autumn Landscape

One of my go to places in North Quabbin is the spot where the source of the West Branch of Fever Brook passes under Route 122 in Petersham. Wetlands are usually the first to turn color and this year things are happening early.  I shot this same scene last year a week later and the color was not as developed at that time.

As with yesterday’s post, it was a bit misty with fog in places and cloudy skies.  But the moisture boosted the saturation enhancing the color.

    Lovely. One of the advantages of year on year photographs is that one can keep a record of when seasonal changes occur each year. I find my garden keeps a very regular schedule most years.

  3. The reds lie in a band across the top third. That made me wonder if you also got pictures in which the richest colors are reflected in the water.

    Because of the perspective, I imagined the two shores as two bands or ‘arms’ of color — which led to me imagine a title like “Autumn’s Embrace.”

    Our front passed the northern Houston suburbs at 6:45 a.m. or so, and is projected to be off the coast by noon. It won’t create color like this, but at least going out to enjoy what color we have won’t be as much work as pleasure!

  5. I. Love. This. Somehow I think of Constable and the English Romantics.

    This looks like a nice place to hang out…it almost looks like it is thinking of becoming a bog.

    • With our lack of rain until recently it was rather bog-like. Ordinarily it is much deeper and wider. There may be more water after the last few days but the color is gone. There is a busy small single lane highway behind me so hanging out is a little chancey. 🙂

        Oh darn that is too bad. If only I were’t so cold averse, I could hightail it north as my son has. He lives in northern WI (among the foaming at the mouth trumpers, but he keeps his head down) and it is glorious up there. But, you know. Cold.
