The day we went to collect the car was a bit wet, but I rather like moody pictures.
This is route 7 approaching Bennington, VT,
The sombre sky and damp atmosphere actually high lighted the amazing colours.
Last year’s Fall was less spectacular than some.
It is all driven by the summer weather.
This year is pretty wonderful, I think.
Even on a dreary day, it’s a lovely sight.
Over a distance of just a few miles the change can vary quite a bit and some trees drop their leaves much sooner than others.
It’s not just the leaves that are a rich colour.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Coming back into Cambridge we passed an Amish farm and got behind one of their horse carts.
Grant doesn’t complain about driving behind them although he thinks horses shouldn’t be made to work.
But then they probably wouldn’t exist in the first place.
Amish horses seem well cared for.
Power lines and poles are unsightly but sometimes they offer perspective, I think.
On a sunny day it’s a whole different look.
This is as close to a traffic jam as we ever get!
We were heading “downtown” to the post office.
And it’s not just the trees that are pretty.
Coming back from Clifton Park on Tuesday we took a dirt road through the fields.
We came upon fields of a different colour.
Soy beans. (I think)
Something we’ve not seen before.
It’s really all rather nice.
