New England Fall Foliage Photo Gallery 2013

Red fall foliage at Myles Standish State Park in Carver, Massachusetts

The fall colors this season were not as bright as I expected. This could be due to lack of rain in the New England area. Being my first time in the New England area during the fall months, I was anticipating more of a dramatic change. Definitely disappointing, however, were were still able to manage to capture a few nice photos.

We visited several state parks, both in Massachusetts and Connecticut, seeking beautiful fall colors. We were dissapointed each time, due to the lack of bright colors. The colors seemed murky/dull, with no dramatic photograph opportunities. Every once in a while, we would spot a bright tree or 2, but nothing overly spectacular. Surprisingly, the Minuteman Bike Path in Massachusetts provided us with the best photo opportunities.

Take a look at the photos below, taken in various states – Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. We were unable to make it up to the upper New England states this year, however, we heard that the colors were not that impressive there either this year. Did your town see a lot of fall colors this year? Which area near you had the best colors this season?
