We took a short trip to visit family in Up-State New York last week. The weather and fall foliage could have not been more perfect and the photo opportunities there were sublime.
Memories of up-state New York and Vermont October 2014.
The scenery in Washington County is steeped in history and I was thoroughly enticed by the many photo opportunities the trip presented; covered bridges, rustic barns, salt box houses, old graveyards, stone fences, blue skies and outstanding rivers.
Here are a few of the scenes I was able to capture. Enjoy!
A rustic barn in Washington County, New York.
This centuries old gravestone is aged and beautiful in its own way.
Autumn color and a feeling of peace in a old rural graveyard.
Even the Old Shushan & Eagleville Cemetery is picturesque.
Restored covered bridges are a part of the charm of rural up-state New York.
A plen air painter capturing the beautiful autumn scene near the 1874 Rexleich Covered Bridge.
The sign says it all.
This lovely saltbox house caught my attention; plain and simple.
Stone walls crafted of local rocks are everywhere.
The wondrous colors of the leaves; in their vivid oranges, yellow and red were lovely. The peak period for this area generally occurs between the last week in September and until the third week of October.

Mother Nature cooperated once again as she exploded with awe-inspiring beauty.
