Every year people flock North to Northern New England to enjoy the crisp, cool Autumn weather while the birds start their migration south. These people are called 'leaf peepers' and excited to take photos of the beautiful leaves changing color. The New England Fall foliage always amazes me.
A few weeks ago I did a little hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Although the foliage is a bit delayed from the lack of rain, there were still a few spots that had started to turn.
While we were hiking and walking along the stream and trail, we came across this beautiful waterfall. People gathered around to enjoy the breathtaking view. Kids played in the water while laughter echoed off the stone wall. Some rested and ate lunch while others waited in line to take photos to remember this moment. The crisp fall air in the woods was present and most enjoyable.
We snapped a few photos and continued on up the trail. There wasn't much foliage to focus on so the waterfall was great to have. It was a great weekend.
I recently sold some prints of this photo. You can buy your own prints here.
This upcoming weekend (Columbus Day), should be much nicer for the leaf peepers visiting New Hampshire. This weekend is typically a great weekend for viewing the New England foliage. I have seen much more foliage over the past few days and I am pretty excited about it myself.
If you are looking to buy some New England photography for your walls, you can view some of my photography here.

I haven't been posting a lot lately and to be honest I haven't been creating a lot of art either. We have been in the middle of Autumn -one of my favorite seasons- and it's been difficult to sit still long enough to create anything; plus the weather has been amazing! That said, I have been busy taking photos as I truly enjoy viewing nature's art and because we only have a short window of time, I have been focusing on that. I have also been focusing on my wedding that is coming up soon!
Once the wedding is over, I will be in a better place to create some new drawings and paintings. But for now, I am happy taking photos and living in the moment. It's good to do what you need to do and not live life by schedule. Don't get me wrong, it's good to have a plan, but I like the freedom to break from it and have some fun, don't you?
To view more of the photos I've been taking lately go here.
I've been creating art in some form or another all my life and it's what I love to do.
