Maple Swamp located in the Delaware National Forest of Pennsylvania is labeled a swamp on the maps. However, people who live in or near swamps prefer to cal them wetlands . In all four seasons they look different. I think they provide beautiful scenes in the autumn.
I love overcast days in the autumn. The sun breaks through and acts like a key-light for highlighting natures wonder. Soon this backyard scene of ours will become all white and we will be on a beach somewhere else.
I think September and October are two of the best months for living in the Pocono Mountains. The weather is near perfect, the summer crazies have gone home and it’s too early for most hunters and skiers. The pace settles down, the air is crisp and mild and the colors are beautiful. This is a small lake about two miles from my house in Hemlock Farms. You can purchase a print of this and see other images and apparel at my commercial site.
Autumn is a great time of year at Grey Towers in Milford Pennsylvania. On October 27 they have a cemetery walk and readings of Edgar Allen Poe inside the old mansion. Milford also hosts the Black Bear Film Festival in October from October 18 through October 20 so this is a great time of year to visit the mountains and see great Autumn views and some wonderful offbeat films.
