The changing colours of Autumn signal that deciduous trees are getting ready for winter – preparing to drop their leaves – “The Fall”. The natural green chlorophyll in the leaves breaks down revealing the reds, orange and yellows of the remaining anthocyanins and carotenoids. Their varying proportions, by species and state of decay, reveal a kaleidoscope of colours – both on the trees and on the ground. Combine this with harvest and Halloween and you have a particularly photogenic phenomena. This set of circumstances occurs wherever there are deciduous trees and distinct seasonal weather, but the “show” is most spectacular in the north eastern states of the USA – New England. We travelled throughout Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut for a month as the amazing ‘show’ enfolded. The stars of the show – the Maples, Beeches, Oaks, Aspens, Ash and Birch – produced an amazing display on some of the prettiest scenery in the world.
