Foliage Report – New England

Grafton Notch State Park – Screw Auger Falls, Maine
 

Foliage Report: Sept 29-30, 2010

The colors are looking pretty good in the White Mountains of New hampshire (Kancamagus Highway – North) and in parts of Maine, BUT they are fading fast and this weekend may be your last chance to see any great color in the White Mountains.

Since it has been raining, gray and overcast all week in the White Mountains the typical landscape(mountain scenes, clouds, and foliage) shots are out.  During this type of weather waterscapes and forests become excellent subjects.  

The overcast sky provides nice even light across the scene (something not usually achievable on a sunny day) and the rain deepens the colors of autumn. Only drawback is the boulders around the rivers are very slippery.
