A natural reflecting pool, Route 1 near Milbridge, Maine
Last week, I went out, with borrowed camera in hand, and took photos of the beauty that is autumn in Maine, autumn in our Acadia National Park, autumn on our island. I am so sad for people who are coming here to see our park and are being shut out or, in some cases, ticketed, for those of who live here can see it all the time. Maybe this glimpse will, at least, help for those of you who are not lucky enough to come and visit during leaf season. I, myself, have not seen anything like it in my lifetime. Once more, I stand ever thankful to be here, right now.
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
One early fall morning at the Carriage House near Northeast Harbor
I noticed something miraculous and held in time…
Bricks, granite and leaves sharing similar hues!
These autumn colours are electric, especially when posited against grey roof tiles and trunks
A glimpse of the far side of Lower Hadlock Pond outside of Northeast Harbor does make you wonder how it all happens so quickly…
…you can see it again on Parkman Mountain in Acadia National Park.
The trees are beginning to rest…
…the grasses are sprouting rainbows from their bases…
…green is turning to gold.
Before it all fades to grey, it is time to bear witness to the rash of colours all around us!
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
