Upper Valley Foliage Past Peak


I’m going to call it. The Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont is past peak. Sure there still is a lot of color around but there are also a lot of stick trees and with the wintry weather mix due, snow flurries, rain, overcast skies and down right gray skies, you better head south if you want to see some great foliage.

Luckily I got a few days in this year to add to my “Fall Collection” – http://edward-fielding.pixels.com/collections/fall+collection

The Fall Gallery in my overall portfolio of photography and artwork for sale as prints, framed art canvas prints, metal prints as well as products, has about 70 of my favorite images from trips around the New England area in the autumn foliage season. You’ll find barns, covered bridges, trees, landscapes, farms, classic cars and more.

What is the Autumn Foliage Season?

Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normally green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown.[1] The phenomenon is commonly called autumn colours[2] or autumn foliage[3] in British English and fall colors,[4] fall foliage, or simply foliage[5] in American English.

In some areas of Canada and the United States, “leaf peeping” tourism is a major contribution to economic activity. This tourist activity occurs between the beginning of color changes and the onset of leaf fall, usually around September and October in the Northern Hemisphere and April to May in the Southern Hemisphere.

What is leaf peeping?

Leaf peeping is an informal term in the United States for the activity in which people travel to view and photograph the fall foliage in areas where foliage changes colors in autumn, particularly in New England. The origin of the term “leaf peeping” is not well known. A similar custom in Japan is called momijigari.
