Byways in the Fall

One of my favorite contexts to view the bright colors of the fall foliage is in the linear context of byways, be they pathways, streets, or highways. Following are a few of the views I captured early during that period when the early hints of color mix with summer greens.

Below: Returning home from New York in early October, just a touch of fall colors tinge the wooded hillsides along Interstate 84 in Connecticut
Below: A mix of fall color lines the pathway in the urban wilds near Belle Isle Marsh in Winthrop.
Below: Early colors in the mature canopy along the pathways of Boston's Public Garden.
