Autumn was not canceled, only postponed
We must not be governed by rigid rules, as by the almanac, but let the season rule us. The moods and thoughts of man are revolving just as steadily and incessantly as nature's. Nothing must be postponed. Take time by the forelock. Now or never! You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this, or the like of this. (Journal of Henry David Thoreau, April 24, 1859)
This is the final collection of photographs from last October’s vacation - autumn in New England - just six months late! “Nothing must be postponed” indeed! “Take time by the forelock” and “now or never!” I think the juxtaposition would make Thoreau chuckle.
No matter how long I had to delay the processing of these images, they still evoke the magic of fall.

Gorgeous work. Guess I must miss Fall after all.
Your collection of photos is moody, broody, and have a quiet, thoughtful feel to them. Photos seemingly taken with care. You had some glorious light, didn't you? Beautifully done, madam.
