Seeing the Forest for the Trees this Fall

The fall is when I’m most likely to be out and about, enjoying myself while taking photos all over Vermont. For a variety of reasons – my work schedule, family obligations, and the recent death of my beloved 21-year-old cat, Lazarus – I haven’t been able to travel around as much this season.

I was able to visit Lincoln and Montpelier in the past two weeks, and I also made a trip to southern Vermont in late September before the foliage really started to turn.

I feel like I’ve missed out a bit this autumn, but I also know there’s only so much I can do sometimes.

On Tuesday, while walking my daughter to preschool, I came across an incredible tree with bright red leaves in our Burlington neighborhood. The light was just right, so I snapped some photos with my phone and posted the best one to Instagram and Facebook. It ended up being one of my most popular fall photos ever.

During a typical fall foliage season, I’m often running around the state trying to capture the best fall foliage. This year, it turns out I didn’t have to go very far after all.

    I feel the same – seems autumn has come and gone much too fast this year.
    Indeed, that is a BEAUTIFUL picture and I’m sorry to hear about Lazarus. That’s never easy. 🙁

      Thank you, Scott! Hope you were able to enjoy some of the fall — it did fly right by! Thanks for your kind words about Lazarus. It was such a heartbreaking loss for us. Take care, Erica
