Obligatory Fall Foliage Photos!

View across our rental home's driveway
The conversations in the car lately are variations on the following few phrases....

"Look at that tree!"

"Oh... look at that yard"
Near campus in town

"I'd forgotten how pretty Fall could be."
Park and Dam in Town

"Man that's a bright orange"

To the point are the continual "Wow"s.   
Steeple at our new church.

When it all starts to fade a little next week, I've got my secret weapon...... 
My sunglasses make everything just a little more vivid!  

I've taken to calling them my "Vermont Shades", since they boost the color up a notch or two!  

Hence another common phrase heard in the car is.... 
"That's gorgeous..... and I don't even have my sunglasses on!" 


  1. Lovely shots. I'm glad you're enjoying the season.

  2. Gorgeous photos! I love the orange shades.

  3. Beautiful series, Grace. You've hit on one of my secrets with your sunglasses. I use a circular polarizer filter on my lens and it really make the colors pop!

  4. These are beautiful! I just can't get enough of all this fall beauty.

  5. It's wonderful to hear someone exclaim with glee how gorgeous our autumn season is here in the east!
    This is what I for every year...Our Florida friends just don't get it. "Don't you miss the palm trees and the beach?" They ask. "Nope" I answer :)
    Have a lovely day!

  6. Hi Grace, I like the new blog design!. It's great to read yur excitement at the fall colors. It's been much the same way for us on our NH road trip. We are returning to our VA eastern shore next Monday and expect to see color changes there in the nearly month we have been away.

  7. Pinch yourself! So true, just too lovely, isn't it. Funny about the sunglasses; just said the same thing last weekend in Blowing Rock.
