Limiting the palette

Think of fall in New England and the deep reds and oranges of the maples come to mind, but a week after what the weathermen call peak foliage is when the real magic happens. The white pines drop their needles, and the beeches and birches begin to turn yellow and copper.

The more subtle palette doesn’t attract the leaf peepers en masse. They don’t know what they’re missing. Bright sun sneaking through the canopy after a rain brings out the best in the conservation land behind our property. The stream pictured is fed by an underground spring.
