It’s official! The weather is finally in agreement with our calendars. Temperatures were in the 60s this past weekend and it looks like we have finally bid farewell to the lingering summer humidity. Now, it’s time to look forward to the beautiful changing leaves, glow of the cressets, warmth of our hot apple cider, and all of our wonderful holiday decorations and events that are on the horizon!
For those of us diehard CW lovers, we can rattle off a list reasons why we love each season in our Colonial Capital. But for me, personally, the list is much longer when I get to talking about autumn. It turns out I’m not the only one! I reached out to some of our talented local photographers and asked them to send some of their favorite captures in recent years, and my inbox quickly started chiming with new messages.
Please, enjoy this sample of work from the talented Rob Hunter, Wilson Futrell, Arden Billings, Cindy McEnery, Wayne Reynolds, Marilyn De Block, Sue Ruthier, and Linda Sammon. After you scroll through, tell them which are your favorites, or even better—upload some pictures of your own in the comments. We’d love to see them!
For those of you wondering about the fall foliage this year, we’re starting to see hints of transition in and around the Historic Area and the Colonial Parkway. I imagine peak time won’t be until this weekend leading up to Halloween or possibly even the first weekend in November. For a closer look at how the weather affects the colors every year—check out a past blog I wrote that breaks it all down!
