Connecticut Fall Foliage Season of Colors
Autumn in New England is a most amazing and popular time of the year. In Connecticut the leaves start to reach their peak around the first week of Connecticut in the north, around the second week in Connecticut towards the middle part of the state and towards the 3rd week toward the south along the Coast. Connecticut has a plethora of fall foliage photography subjects from high mountains and vistas, to reflections on lakes and ponds, forest trails, streams, rivers and brooks, historic homes and pastoral scenes and landscapes.
The fall colors are very fleeting. Peak fall foliage colors sometime last only a few days before turning brown, or falling from the trees by wind and rain as the weather changes this time of the year and becomes quite erratic with wind and rain storms in Connecticut by mid October.
You have to move fast, get out and take in as much of this as you can to take advantage of this small window of time. 2020 was one of the better color years we have had in many years with more reds and yellows.
Below is a sampling of some of the fall foliage photos I was able to take for 2020 during this small window.
Enjoy and happy fall
