A study in contrasts...

Am still running a bit behind in my posting -- these pics are from, respectively, a walk around Monson, NH (a nature reserve encompassing an abandoned colonial town) a few weeks ago with jenlev, elishavah, and katie_m; and the same place approx. 6 months earlier, during a snowshoeing outting. I thought the comparison was fun. :)

This is the entry path/road, with the reconstructed Gould House (the only building on the site) in the distance.

Not quite a perfect mirror, but this is the same tree and same stone wall in a field beside the entry road.

The entry road looking the other way, on the way out.

Very similar shot, taken from the path just as it has gone inside the woods, looking back at the fields on either side of the entry road. (Both of these are probably my favorite shots from each trip.)

And, some extra shots from the summer excursion (path in the woods; trees and light; entry road near the Gould House). I'm really fond of this type of New England landscape: small fields surrounded by woods, with low, partially tumbled stone walls.

Perhaps later I will add a "fall foliage" set to my collection of pics of this locale. :)

Oooh, your photos make me want to go walking in the woods.

When I was at Smith, we had a fall holiday that was random called "Mountain Day" (I think?) where we were supposed to go out and look at the changing leaves. :D

Cool! I love the matching photos.
