When you live in a New England town, autumn takes on a special meaning. While we might not have the exuberant leaf display of our more northerly neighbors, there are certainly enough opportunities to be enchanted by the seasonal change that cloaks everyday sights and architecture in glorious colors. And that “golden light” that I love so much is even more golden at this time of the year. In contrast to the full-on, bold sun of summer, everything is now nuanced by a softer and low, sweeping light.
Autumn’s clouds add a sometimes dreamy, sometimes moody atmosphere to vistas.
And this day after Halloween, I just had to include this Ocean Drive home. With its turrets and eerie lights in the windows (compliments of the setting sun), one wouldn’t be faulted for recalling the Addams family.
