I love to look up through the tree canopy to the sky above in any season, but in autumn with the foliage on fire, this practice fills me with wonder and delight.
I never tire of it, Nature’s beauty knows no bounds!The hills are tapestries of color, peaking this week in our area of New England. Driving through the countryside, I marvel at the glory of red, orange and gold, interwoven with accents of evergreen. All too fleeting, I find myself pausing to drink it in, knowing full well that with every passing breeze and raindrop that falls, this show will be coming to an end. Enjoy this brilliant moment!
The close ups are so lacy and feminine, Eliza, and the distance images are magnificent! I am so glad you are documenting Autumn too!!! Thank you, my friend. Love, Amy
Amy, you’re so sweet. Blessings! 🙂
I do!!! stunning:-)
Thanks, Robbie 🙂
Thank you, Cindy!
You, effortlessly, give us all a connection with the beauty of this time and place.
Thanks, Kim, you are so kind! 🙂
Such beautiful colours Eliza! I too love looking at the sky through the trees and on the weekend I lay down under the cherry trees as it ‘snowed’ petals – quite magical!
Oh, lovely! I got married in an apple orchard during blossom time so I could have that effect. It is magical!
Oh what a wonderful idea!
Tasmania is nicknamed the Apple Isle because of all the orchards – perfect destination for an anniversary holiday perhaps!
That’s just it, isn’t it? It’s so incredibly beautiful and so very fleeting. I love Virginia and we have beautiful foliage here but nothing compares to New England in the fall.
It is pretty amazing. It’s all those red and sugar maples, they are spectacular!
I remember New England falls and there isn’t anything quite like it.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you! Having lived here all my life, I sometimes forget just how special autumn is here. I will redouble and renew my appreciation! 🙂
Beautiful, Eliza. I can’t get enough of these colors – fleeting and surreal, almost. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Thanks back to you, Sharon. 🙂
Beautiful leafy shots!
The colors of your canopy are magical. The very fact that you live in a canopy world, regardless of season, is even more magical. Thanks for sharing with us.
My pleasure! I love sharing my forests with you!
With you there Eliza – and how beautiful your photos are!
Thanks so much!
Stunning, just stunning…
Thank you kindly!
Thank you so much for sharing this. We don’t get that kind of colour here so I have to live vicariously =)
So glad to share the beauty – it is pretty phenomenal!
Such a beauty… What a treat for the eye, mind and soul! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Thank you, Ana!
The colors of the seasons are gifts that never fail to surprise. When I think I’ve seen it all, I am still left breathless. Your photos are so delightful, but I’ll bet you will still be surprised next year. 🙂
You are so right! I was saying just that to a friend yesterday – how I never cease to be awed by the beauty of Nature! Thanks, Dor!
I really like YOUR autumn. Great and beautiful photos!
Thank you, Daniel. You must come to New England some September/October to photograph the seasonal change. I would tell you the best places to go and you would capture the best of it! 🙂
Yes new england in september october thats one of my biggest dreams. Hopefully maybe one day…
I love how you have captured the beauty of the foliage against the blue sky! Its breathtaking Eliza 🙂
Thanks so much, Val. It is the contrast that always captivates me, even as a young child I remember looking up and feeling such joy!
What a wonderful canopy! I’m trying to figure out where you are again … such beautiful countryside. I can look up into my Pin Oak but don’t have enough mature trees yet to look up into a “canopy.” By then, I won’t have enough sun for my Potager ha ha. I love to watch the trees grow, though. There is something so magical in looking up to those branches – especially in Spring and Fall. Hope you made a wish! (Maybe to escape Winter?)
I am in western MA, lots of forest in this part of the state. Heavenly! I did note your young trees, particularly the spruce and oak and thought that in a few years, they will take over! They are so cute and innocent in their little pots when we plant them! We’ve been here 24 years and it is astounding to look at old photos and see how open the yard was – now it is a jungle with very limited open areas.
Spectacular shots, Eliza.
I take it you’re experiencing a second summer this year as well. We were in the low 70’s yesterday, 68 today. Your area is probably even warmer. 🙂
Thanks, Michael. Yes, our temps. are about the same. Second summer indeed. We’re being deluged today, very warm and humid. Our waterfall is up and splashing! 🙂
