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 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 . . . .
Take a Fall Foliage Tour
We missed fall foliage on our recent visit to the USA. If we were here, I think we would have taken either this colourful tour from Viator or one of these from Get Your Guide. We have toured successfully with both companies in the past.
