Maine's Fall Colors


Summer is basically over now in Maine. I've actually had to wear a coat every day for a while now. One of the best things about summer being over is it means that Fall is here - which means that the leaves are changing everywhere. I cover a good swath of the area, driving between Bangor and Bar Harbor, so I've really gotten to see a lot of them. Last weekend Golda and I finally got around to driving around and taking some pictures.

The University of Maine in Orono has a pretty campus right now. Here's a few shots of the library:




And here's another building nearby that I forget the name to:


Part of the south Bangor waterfront (not really a lot of color, but I thought it was pretty):

And finally back closer to home in Bucksport:




And then a few final photos in a random cemetery in Bucksport (apparently I'm supposed to mention this is my mother-in-laws favorite place). I think it'd pretty awesome to see 4-5 generations of a family all in one place, but I'm sure this is going the way of the buffalo nowadays since it isn't as common to stay close to home now.

Wanna come visit yet?

I do love cemetaries! There is a small hard to find cemetary in southern Missouri with 3 generations of Gouty's I believe. The first was a very early settler from Ohio. Golda's great-great-great grandfather or perhaps one more great....

These are great photos! Wonderful composition and a good eye for framing. Fall is one of my favorite times of year for scenic photography.
