Top Ten Photos: Leaf Peeping and Fall Colors in the Berkshires!

Trees In Distance
All Photos By Gail

It is true that New York State is one of the best places to live if you really want to see the fall change of colors in nature. But here in Manhattan, the reality is that the leaves change from green to brown to dead without much color spectrum in between. Fortunately, I had the chance to spend a few days in the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts over the Columbus Day weekend and snapped many fantastic photos just as all of the leaves were approaching full fiery glory. Please enjoy!

Trees and Lake

This one was taken near a big lake.

Row of Red Bushes

This row of bright red bushes was near the main road walking up from the lake.

Handicapped Parking

From a distance, these looked like huge pot leaves to me. But they were not.

Flower Bed

I realize that these are blooming flowers and not leaves, but aren’t they gorgeous?

Assorted Bushes

I took this one on the grounds near the house where I was staying. With all of those pine needles on the ground, the air smelled just amazing.

Lone Red Tree

I love this one, lone red tree among all the green.

Clock Tower

This Clock Tower, officially called the Dudley Field Memorial Tower, is right across the road from the Stockbridge Cemetery.

Naumkeag

This one was taken at place called Naumkeag, the family estate of Joseph Choate, a leading 19th-century attorney, and a co-founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Stop and Shop

And last, but not least, this one was taken in the parking lot of a Stop and Shop. Happy Fall Everyone!

Yes, It Exists: Imitation Nutella & Fluff Spread

Faux Nutella & Fluff Spread

Is this knock-off Nutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread swirled together with Marshmallow Fluff the grossest food product in the world, or a tasty treat? I can’t decide. Photographed by me in Price Chopper, Lenox, Massachusetts.
