Fall Foliage in Mid-Coast Maine


This has been one of the prettiest falls I ever remember in my ten years in Maine.

Perhaps it’s been the relatively dry Indian Summer?

The hillsides are literally orange–and when the sun hits them–Oh MY!  I find myself just wanting to drive around and capture the orange.

Two weeks ago, I took this video on a cloudy Sunday–so the hillsides don’t have sunlight firing them up.  Since then, the color has deepened and become even richer.

Here are two stills from that same day.  Remember, no sunshine…

And, you can see how what Sarah Orne Jewett called “the pointed firs” occupy the tops of our hills.  It’s colder up there, and with global warming, they are retreating up the hillsides.

Here are some views around the house, starting with a video taken from the upper porch, which looks out to a ridge and into our woods:

And looking into the path into our woods:
