Having lived most of my youth in Florida and most of my adult life in Houston, fall in Maine is a new season to me even after 16 years.
As soon as it’s that time of year, I make a special trip to Beth’s market to fill a basket with an amazing array of pumpkins and gourds. They will be used here and then taken to Houston where they will appear one way or another through the Christmas holidays. Indeed, they are a very good investment.
Even after stocking up on pumpkins and gourds, if I see someone on the side of the road selling them I can’t resist stopping for one or two more.
In my neighborhood, I pass this tree daily, and it is always the first indication I see that fall is really here. It shows its coat of many colors early, but it seems to lose it when other trees are just turning.
On beautiful fall days, I enjoy getting in the car and with no destination in mind heading out with my camera to see what else is happening with the change of season. In the rural areas, grass is bundled for winter livestock feed
and wood is piled to keep those winter fires burning.
Expanses of wild blueberry fields have turned crimson
and ponds and lakes reflect the color on their banks.
Driving down any road reveals beauty that in its splendor reveals that God is, indeed, a master artist and my heart fills with gratitude.
Who knows how many more years Maine will be my part time home, but however long that is, I doubt I will tire of fall and the drama of its colors and textures.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

All are beautiful. The last photo is so stunning!!
stunning pictures and pretty much the same scenery we have here during the season. It’s my favorite!
I enjoyed fall through your lens, Lulu! Wonderful.
stunning photos Linda, especially that magnificent tree! Fall is barely starting in the South, first cool day today, if 69 is cool 🙂
I guess I like fall because we get so little in Houston.
All of these photos but especially the first one is starting my day off beautifully!

There is so much beauty this time of year.
I love seeing Fall colors through your camera. You pick it up beautifully!
Great snapshots of FALL in MAINE, Linda. They all tell a story about this state and you have captured the beauty that lies all over the place.
How easy it is to find beauty here.
I will never tire of your gorgeous falls in Maine either! Beautiful.
It doesn’t last long enough, but fall is at its best right now.
Your camera lens is always exciting, Linda! Fall must be magical in Maine!
You know, Pam, every day I’m here is magical!
Oh gorgeous Lulu! I love fall but this year in MN it has been cloudy, gloomy and rainy so we haven’t had the amazing burst of color. Looks so spectacular in Maine. Enjoy and thanks for sharing.
I didn’t think color would be as lovely as it is because we had such a hot, dry summer.
Beautiful! You make me want to visit Maine!!!
You would not be sorry!
It for sure is on my “bucket list!f”
Stunning photos. And a lovely reminder of Maine. It’s a while since we were there, and just as autumn was arriving too. The hay wagon and the log store are archetypal images.
I’m glad you got a taste of the beauty that is Maine.
so beautiful…thanks for sharing and allowing me to reminisce about the sights and smells of fall even though I now live in southern california.
My pleasure. Today there is wood smoke in the air.
Absolutely beautiful photography!! The fall colors are definitely something I miss also!
I absolutely love being here this time of year.
Every photo tells a story
