Maple, outside my bedroom window

One compensation for the sticky, hot, summers in New England is the autumnal colours. Quite spectacular in most years.

On a certain morning, in late September, I awoke to a strange pinkish/orange light reflecting from the white-painted ceiling. Looking outside, I could scarcely believe my eyes, for there was a perfect example of a flaming, red maple tree not 40 feet from my bedroom.

Needless to say, I was outside and snapping away as fast as I could. The colour was so fantastic, that motorists were actually sreeching to a halt, and taking pictures with anything they had, phones, PDAs, some even had cameras!

Anyway, here we are – Fall in New England
