Boston Fall Foliage 2021

 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.

Boston is a city full of love!

We walked back to the Boston Public Garden to take some shots there.

I hope you are enjoying your Fall in your neck of the woods. 


  1. Beautiful
    I grew up feeding the ducks on the Charles River.

    1. That's awesome. You must have some great memories for there. It's such a beautiful area.

  2. You bring out the best in everything you photo. You have caught the light so well in these.

    1. Thank you so much Muffy. I really appreciate it.
