The 2015 foliage on Snake Mountain, Addison, Vermont was more gold than the vibrant orange of 2016. Compare the colors in the last post with the photo above taken on 24 October 2016 at 3:05 PM Eastern Time from the Dead Creek Wildlife Refuge visitor's viewing area looking east.
The sky and light are glorious that afternoon.
Westward, are the peaks of the Adirondack Mountains showing a top off of snow, and color foliage below. The photo is taken with the Canon SX150 12x optical zoom as far as it will go.
I didn't expect to go out and about that day. When I saw the sky, I knew it might be the last chance to catch good color. Besides, at the Addison Four Corners Store (intersection of Route 17 and Route 22A), the homemade donuts are on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Oh my, I realize, Its Monday. Alas, I didn't see them right away, and forgot the donuts. Anyway, the afternoon turns out to be full of photographs I want to paint from; and after all, tomorrow is Wednesday. I smile.
