New England Autumn Colors Portfolio

I was able to visit New England in mid October for a week to shoot the autumn colors there. I had not photographed this area before so I was really excited about the opportunity to get more shots of the great reds and oranges of the deciduous trees. Thanks to the people who took the time to email me suggestions of where to go based on my previous blog post about  my planned trip. I flew into Boston and headed straight for the "Kanc" Highway in New Hampshire, which was a good call because that spot was where the colors were really happening. Most of the images I selected from the 2000 frames I took were from that region. I was very impressed with the colors and scenery in that area along the Swift River. I had to contend with wind, snow and freezing weather but I was able to get a series of shots I am pleased with. I decided to forego Vermont due to the bad weather in that area and instead headed out to Acadia National Park in Maine. I was really pleased with the great color in this area as well.The week of shooting in this new region was intense, most days were 14 hours straight of shooting and or driving or managing files - I wanted to make the most of my limited time there. Thanks to the great file management software available (Aperture & Lightroom)  I was able to efficiently sort through my work and select 18 images for my website - here is the link the the New Release Autumn Colors portfolio on my site.
