Autumn Road

It is January, and in my part of the world that means beautiful, glittering snow and a bright sun, shining through leafless trees, but for purpose of this post, we are going back to a golden world with soft colors and glowing leaves. Let's look back on October.

Last October, as we were driving through the Concord area of Massachusetts, we stumbled onto a bucolic town called Lincoln. Lincoln is only 20 to 30 miles away from the city of Boston, but it was pure countryside, with rolling green hills, farms, winding roads through tunnels of trees, and gorgeous, old colonial homes. I had to stop on this particular road to take photos because not only did it have some stunning fall color, but it also encompassed an old graveyard. I am an old graveyard fanatic, and the combo of the autumn trees, countryside, and centuries old graves was too irresistible.

The next picture was not taken in Lincoln, but instead in Salem, Massachusetts. Since it falls into the category of forgotten autumn photos, though, I thought I add it to the mix.

Thanks for indulging my posting of past season photos. I will probably be doing this again, as I have plenty of photos from Cape Cod and Bar Harbor this summer that I haven't even touched yet.

Hope you all are having a wonderful start to 2013. So far, 2013 has been kind to me.  I feel full of hope and excitement for what lies ahead, and I am grateful for my family and grateful for a layer of snow on the ground that has created a magical feeling to the world around me.


  1. This post made me smile as I tend to do the same thing: take far too many pictures in one day and then be stuck for hours and hours in front of my computer trying to figure out which ones to use. I am rather grateful though that I don't have to look at the cost of each shot anymore.

    These pictures are beautiful and such a contrast to our grey weather here.

    Happy to hear that 2013 has started well for you and your family. Hope it continues that way. Have a lovely week xo

  2. More? Cape Cod? Bar Harbor? Yes, please! I'd love to see them.

    I'm an over-taker too. Maybe we just see the beauty in even the tiniest of things, and at every angle? Digital photography sure has changed everything hasn't it? Our children's lives will be documented in a way unlike any other generation.

  3. I'm so glad you revisited these photos! I love the first one of the tree lined road. All beautiful! I get so overwhelmed with my digital photos too....thousands of them. I need to figure out a good system for managing them because I love taking them!

  4. I do the same thing and then have to find the space on my laptop to save all of them! I am so glad you posted these because it's so grey and rainy here in London and I am missing autumn so much! The last shot is my favourite!

  5. How much fun to see bright autumn foliage on a grey winter's day! I'm even farther behind on my photo editing and the images do pile up. It is worth the time to edit them. Lovely!

  6. Oh these are beautiful ... I love the last one especially. So nice to see all this color on a black-and-white January day!

  7. So gorgeous! I don't mind you posting fall pics at all. Post away, please! I don't see autumn often :)

    I'm glad 2013 has been good to you so far!

  8. Autumn here is well portrayed, the road is a good one as is your way of seeing.
    I know that you are an old graveyard fanatic, but I must tell you that old graveyards looks awesome with blue umbrellas!...:-)
