That time of year

Early morning after a snow storm. I don’t think the fence was intended to hold back snow, but I liked the look.

A quick stop on the way home from work; drawn to the sparse New England architecture.

The Calm Before The Storm, New England, USA

I find the New England states in the North East of the US most attractive in the fall months. Our recent trip up to Newport unfortunately turned up soggy and not the best weather for enjoying fall foliage. However, Newport for me, never fails to enthrall no matter what time of the year maybe bar summer when the traffic just gets to me.

Small Town Snow

Nighttime snowfall, Village Green, Hamilton, New York

A right of passage for many high school juniors is the Spring Break college visit trip. And so it was for me and my daughter last March. Instead of heading south to warmer temperatures, we headed north, ultimately reaching Maine. And along the way we encountered dropping temperatures, a frozen Lake Champlain in Vermont, and of course, snow.

This night, snow fell silently on the small town of Hamilton in upstate New York. A quintessential New England town, there is a 1925, Dutch-colonial style inn that anchors the Village Green, and it is from a balcony there that I took this shot. I didn’t have a tripod, but I had a wooden railing, which served admirably.

This is one of my favorite images from the 8-day, 10-state, 11-school, 1850-mile trip. And my daughter? She wants to go to school in California.

“Well I’m a going back down
Maybe one more time,
Deep down home,
October road.”
~ James Taylor

I’m a bit obsessed with autumn, it’s my favorite season here in New England. For a peek at some fall color, come on over and visit me on my personal blog – Licht Years.

Have a great week, everyone!
