Autumn in New England (USA) is a destination on every travel photographer’s bucket list. My last visit to see the fall foliage was far too long ago. Now, as spring settles into the southern hemisphere, I can dream about nature’s vivid colours on the other side of the world.
New England hills are bursting with colour. The 2016 season is painting in vibrant shades of rusts, oranges, purples, golds and vermillions across all six New England states. They call it “Leaf Peeping” season. Come and peep with me . . . .
- New England states include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. They cover the northeast corner of the United States.
- While nature decides the ideal days, the leaf peeping season runs from mid-September to mid-October.
- If I were heading to the states now, I would pick up a copy of Lonely Planet New England Fall Foliage Road Trips.
- More information is available from Discover New England.
