Seeing the Forest for the Trees this Fall

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
