I realize it’s a little early in the season to begin complaining about winter. However, waking up every morning to below freezing temps has already made me yearn for warm summer evenings like we had on this shoot, standing amid acres and acres of sunflowers, in southern Pennsylvania.

After the record-breaking cold of Thanksgiving day, it has been several days of fog and rain here in our corner of New Hampshire which is slowly melting away the snow.
Temperatures took a real nose dive here over the Thanksgiving holiday but everyone stayed warm and cozy by the fire and enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving feast. I hope you also had a wonderful holiday spent with family and friends.
It was the first snow of the season yesterday but, unfortunately, I didn't have the chance to take many photos. I had not finished putting up the winter deer fence and, as bad luck would have it, about three or four deer descended on the garden Thursday night. Sigh. We finished the fence today and so hopefully things are now tightly sealed off and secure
The maples that drape over the rooftop of the Hidcote-inspired folly at Juniper Hill never fail to give their best in the autumn.
I don't know the variety of this crabapple. It's ancient and was here long before we were. However, it's the most prolific fruit producer of any crabapple in the garden.
This mature Japanese Maple was already here and well established when we moved to the farm and it was quite large then. I’m not sure what variety it is. Most likely ‘Bloodgood.’ Whatever the cultivar, it puts on quite a show every fall and it’s always a bright landmark whether you’re driving to or from the farm.

These dying water lilies floating on a pond in Hancock, New Hampshire provided the perfect opportunity for a little abstract expressionism.
This Angelica gigas has given up its purple summer color but is still beautiful. Many umbellifers, like Angelica, continue to provide interest in the garden if left standing through the autumn and into winter.
There’s nothing like a gravel road encased in fog to bring out the foliage colors and set the mood for a perfect autumn day.
Cemeteries in New England were often planted with maple trees and thus make very colorful spots in the fall.Read More
There’s nothing more satisfying than stumbling across a few hidden ponds while out searching for good foliage shots. The beautiful backcountry of New Hampshire never ceases to amaze!
It’s rare that I can get a small group of sheep to concentrate on anything except eating grass but I was lucky to get this shot with my iPhone before everyone resumed their chomping at the ground.
A little Photoshop magic allowed me to take this street scene titled “Wishing,” which was shot in the middle of the day, and make it look like early evening. Photo was taken in Chipping Campden, UK using a small 6 megapixel Nikon D50 which still takes great shots!
