Birch Lake

This fall scene was right off the road in Northern New Hampshire and the birches mixed with the autumn color were just crying out to be captured. I ended up here after hearing two park rangers talk about one area that was on fire with color,and I ended up behind them on a back road after they gave me directions,and I was itching to get there fast but they were taking their time,so I had to keep my enthusiasm in check.The really funny part was about two hours later I passed them again collecting trash at a rest stop almost 50 miles away and as I pass the lady ranger looks up directly at me and smiles,as if to say I told you so.

Roadside Pond

I photographed this gorgeous little pond from the roof of the jeep I rented on my New England adventure recently. Parking across the road and using a long lens allowed me to isolate the foliage and reflection without the bland sky to distract.
