Walking along the beautiful rail trails is a wonderful way to experience the beauty of fall in New England, and we’ve been doing just that almost every day. One of the trails runs along the east side of the Nashua River, and the backlit foliage along the river in the late afternoon light is just spectacular. I took many shots there and this is one of my favorites.
But why stop at one? Here’s a slideshow with some more of my favorites. There are 9 images and all but #5 were taken on the Nashua River Rail Trail in either Pepperell or Groton, Massachusetts. Number 5 was shot on the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
Acadia National Park is one of our favorite places in the world. We’ve been there countless times over the last 35 years, but its beauty and magic enchant us still. And this was the first time we ever saw an eclipse there – the splendor of the blood moon was enhanced by a sky filled with more stars than we have ever seen. Although we didn’t photograph the eclipse, the memories of that glorious evening will fill our hearts with joy forever.
One spot we love to visit and photograph is Duck Brook, and on our last day there we stopped by late in the morning, and the light on the reeds was just amazing. I took lots of shots, but this one was my favorites.
