Crawford Colors

The explosion of color that descends upon the New England landscape during the month of October makes for easily one of the most visually magical times of the year. The colors shine especially brightly within the rugged mountain areas of Crawford Notch, and I made this picture on a warm autumn evening when the clear and crisp mountain air allowed the tree colors to glisten like lanterns in the forest.
