This is my first Autumn in Uxbridge, MA. I can see the differences here as compared to the Pacific Northwest. I can smell the differences as well. There are a lot more leaf bearing trees in New England than Oregon. Oregon is the largest producer of Christmas trees in the country. That means pine trees, lots of pine trees. You can drive the back roads of Oregon and see mountains rising high into the clouds, all covered in pines. Not many pines here on the East Coast in New England. It’s not better, just different.
As a result of all the leafy trees here the ponds and ground are covered with a carpet of colorful leaves. Lilypads are everywhere. Plants I haven’t noticed abound here. I have yet to see a single fern here. The Pacific Northwest is covered with fiddlehead ferns.
So my photography is now capturing New England’s version of Nature, its subtleties, nuances and beauty. In my quest to define and capture my environment I hope you enjoy the uniqueness that I find and photograph in Uxbridge, MA.
