With cool temps at night, photosynthesis in trees ends, the lack of chlorophyl in the leaves reveals a brilliant display of reds, oranges, yellows and purples.

I might go to the Jack-o-lantern Festival at Roger Williams Park next week. If I do, and if I take pictures, and if they come out good, I'll post 'em.

Very, very nice photos!

Correct me if I'm wrong, that's the Prudential Center, correct?

I'll correct you. It's the Hancock Building.

He! He! :D I like that pic because the Hancock from that angle looks only as thick as a pane of glass!

Great pics, Scott. The fall colors are at their peak here. Only the oak trees haven't started changing yet - they'll keep their leaves until November. I left on Saturday afternoon & the tree in my front yard had all of its leaves still on it...when I came home Sunday afternoon every last leaf off the tree was laying on the ground. I was going to take a pic of it...the colors on it were especially nice this year, but I guess I'm not going to now. Now I've got to help clean up the mess it made on the front lawn :(

Here's the Pru and the Back Bay with a massive walk for cancer research on Sunday. People just kept coming and coming over the Mass Ave. bridge from Boston despite the driving rain.

Thanks for the pix. I like the shot of the Pru area from that angle in the rain.

Future Architect, am I right in thinking you are from Detroit? The leaves around Boston have not changed color yet for the most part, but we are starting to see hints of things to come. The weather has been right for a good show this year.

At least it waited to snow by you. Here we had a light dusting of snow on September 30th! So the 6 month long Michigan winter has begun :(

I had to go to Boston on Thursday for work. I took the commuter rail. When I left Providence the snow was coming down pretty hard. I got to around Mansfield and it was actually sticking, didn't expect that.

That was the earliest I've ever seen snow. Even when I was living in Maine we didn't have any 'til Halloween.

We usually don't get snow until November. This year has just been very weird when it comes to weather.

Pumpkin farms....those bring back memories! When I was little, my parents always took me to our local pumpkin patch, where they had a corn maze & free cider & doughnuts. And of course, I always picked out a huge pumpkin that I couldn't even lift! All that is gone now...it's been replaced with houses & parking lots.
