Fall in the Berkshires

I recently found an old archive of original files from the year I spent living in my truck, driving all over the east coast.  Some of my favorite photos are also the ones that provoke the most nostalgia for me: my photos of fall in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, where I went to college.  While Virginia has a longer period of fall foliage, there is no beating the intensity of color to be found in New England in late September/early October.

These photos were all taken with my old Canon 30D, in the fall of 2007.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Orange, yellow, and gold.

A hint of green is still left!

West Street, including the longest town common in Massachusetts. This was the street upon which the village of Hadley was founded.

My favorite street in the whole wide world.
