I photographed the Christmas lights in downtown Quincy MA the other day. The city of Quincy does a beautiful job decorating the square for the holidays. You can see the trail lights from the vehicles moving through the square at rush hour in this first photo.

"Some gifts are big, others are small.
But the ones that come from the heart
Are the best gifts of all."
Today's blog post is about gifts. I've recently received a few gifts that I cherish, and I know they came from the heart.
A faithful follower of this blog named Cynthia, who I only met one time many years ago, recently contacted me about a special gift. Cynthia is a beautiful person who frequently comments on my blog posts with kindness. I always appreciate her comments. She recently contacted me and told me that she was sending me a gift containing some of her favorite photos from "Carols View Of New England." The gift arrived the other day and I LOVE it so much!!!!!!

It's certainly been a strange foliage season here in SE MA and the city of Boston. The warm temperatures throughout most of October delayed the peaking of the foliage this year. I went into Boston for an early morning shoot on Sunday October 31st. Typically, the Fall colors would be peak on that date, but the color was spotty this year. I did find some color and would like to share a few photos taken that morning.
There was a heavy rainstorm the night before, and the rain was predicted to end around 7 AM. The forecast was correct, and the rain stopped just before we arrived in Boston. We parked near the Public Garden and walked over to the Charles River Esplanade where we were greeted with a rainbow.

Today's post features photos taken from my last day of shooting in Vermont this Fall. It was another daytrip. My cousin and fellow photographer Betty, has a good friend named Sharon, who lives in Manchester VT. Sharon invited us up to her neck of the woods to show us around the area. I have never been to Manchester before and all I can say is that I fell in love with the area. It's a gorgeous town in Southwest VT.
Our first stop of the morning was to photograph The West Dummerston Covered Bridge, which is the longest covered bridge in the state of VT, at 280 feet. The bridge was built in 1872 and it spans the West River in Dummerston.
Sharon advised us on a route to take from Boston. She recommended we make our way up to Jamaica VT which is in SE VT, and from there to take Pike Falls Road over to the Western side of the state. This is a GORGEOUS dirt road that runs up through the mountains from East to West. A few photos from this road:

I hope this Fall has been a good one for you. I made two day trips to VT the week after my weeklong stay up in the NEK. The first daytrip was with my good friend and fellow photographer David. David's favorite thing to photograph is waterfalls so I planned an itinerary to photograph some areas in Central VT including a few waterfalls.
I left my house in SE MA around 4:40 am. Guess what????............ We arrived to our first location socked in with fog. :-) I just couldn't escape the foggy mornings this year. Our first stop was at the two covered bridges in Hartland VT. I honestly wasn't thrilled with any photos I took at this location, but wanted to share a few anyway. My friend who is more mobile than me got some great shots of the falls, but unfortunately mobility is an issue for me since the mva so I make the best with what I can do.
