Foliage Foray

As bright and sunny and awesome as yesterday was, today … not so much. But it was no less fun grabbing the camera and heading out on back roads threading through Franconia, Easton, Bath and Lyman.

Any fashionista worth her weight can tell that a good neutral color like, say, gray, can really pop any color. And so it is with fall foliage. Oh, sure, I would have traded anything for a clear blue sky and sunshine today, but it was a gray and that’s ok.

Pop.Pop. Pop.

Saturday Evening: Bath, NH

Bath, population about 1,000, still has some deep agricultural roots. It also has some beautiful views. Together, the combination makes for some very pretty photographs.

The horse was a sturdy and curious fellow; the red-wing blackbirds were playful; and the barn … the barn was lovely.

For the second day of July, the weather was comfortably cool and dry, so there was no haze. We’ll take it.
