Hi, my name is Mary, and I'm a recovering Fall-o-phobic. Heh.
Maybe it was Maine, and the super nice people that seem to all live there. Maybe it was the Moose adventure. Maybe it's the fact that it hasn't really gotten cold here yet in Rhode Island. My attempt to sit back, relax and enjoy the change of seasons (Autumnal Acceptance) has resulted in...me liking it, kinda. Woo hoo.
A beautiful time of the year in New England...the part of October that still remains sunny and warm enough to go outside without jackets, even into the night hours. The butterflies are still out, the water is cooling down in the ponds and lakes..Why haven't I noticed all this stuff happening before? It's probably something I can attribute, again, to my camera.
Above are more scenes from the Maine Highlands...Moosehead Lake..and surrounding areas.
As a kid I remember the night of Halloween always being super cold, and my mother forcing me to wear a huge puffy Michelin-Man coat over my costumer- ruining the whole effect. So I'm trying to enjoy the days before that fateful day arrives this year.. and it always seems to take everyone by surprise!
These adirondack chairs sported cutout pine trees and overlooked Moosehead Lake. The water was cobalt blue and the mountains surrounding the lake were tinged with red, orange, yellow and green.
Above are some views from the same hill above the lake, and the sherbet hued sunset behind the pines. A great place to sip some cider and take in the sights and scents of the changing season.
Hope you enjoyed! (While all of this color is happening in Northern New England, we in the Southern section have yet to see the brilliant color of seasons past...still waiting (hoping)! for some additional color, but if it doesn't come I will set out with a few choice lenses this weekend, anyhoo.) :)
