We think that what follows fall is winter.
But it’s not true. What follows fall is a season of it’s own. A peaceful time of warmth and splendor, fading color and fading light.
Bright foliage against bare trunks and limbs becomes more brilliant by contrast.
We stop, stare and catch our breath – it always takes us by surprise.
This view looks north along West Road in North Bennington, Vermont, near historic Park-McCullough House. On this November afternoon, the maple trees on the right side of the road were still full with bright yellow leaves. November sun is not bright, but it was enough to nicely highlight the bright leaves and provide contrast with the warm grey of the bare trees.
