Not long ago I returned from a trip through New England at the height of peak fall foliage. Driving from Ontario through Quebec, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine gave a dynamic variety of scenery to drink in. The colours lit up like neon signs when hit by the sun and changed so dramatically from the golden waves of black walnut, horse chestnut, and white poplar leaves, to fiery puffs of sugar maple and oak trees, to the stark white of the bare birch trees. Still inspired upon my return to Vancouver I snapped a few more photos from within my neighbourhood. We may not have sprawling hillsides of hardwoods, but we do have some amazing examples of season’s change that begged to be captured. The photos below show a tiny sampling of what I thought was the best this fall had to offer, from East to West.
