Colorful Maine

You might have been wondering (or maybe not) about the fall colors here in Maine. So were we  -- because last week there were days of  mist, fog and a little rain.

Then, it started happening . . . LOTS of COLOR

Wonderful! You do have more colors on Your trees when autumn comes than we do over here. Almost all trees gets yellow and only a few red or orange.

Have a great day now!

Greetings everyone - yes, the colors are getting better (finally).

AC, i suspect that by the time we get home our leaves may be changing colors too.

Thanks Lois :-)

Christer, there are so many yellow leaves here and more so than the reds and oranges. It would be great to see entire areas of varying colors, but not all have changed here yet. There are still many trees with green leaves.

I know that New England is known for the beautiful fall colors and these are no exception. Nice capture and thanks for sharing.

Thanks Scott for stopping in AND especially for the compliments. We are so glad to be finally seeing some of these colorful trees, but more rain is coming in so today will be an exploring day - lots of antique shops/stuff places in this part of New England.

Beautiful fall shots! Pennsylvania was just a little behind Maine when we left, and of course when we got home most of the leaves were on the ground. The fall colors here in Fairbanks are mostly yellow, so I really enjoyed seeing the reds and oranges.

Thanks Elaine. We had hoped to see the color changes a bit more widespread, but are not disappointed because there are so many little towns and places to explore. Cloudy days work best for most photos, except the colorful leaves don't "pop" as much. We hope there's still some color left when we return home to the VA eastern shore.
