I’ve shared two images of this Maple tree at Seaside Park so far but couldn’t help myself in sharing one more vantage point.  I had photographed this tree for the first time in the fog on October 20, 2012 and had returned on October 4, 2014 to find it at nearly peak color.  The light was flat and skies were gray and so I made it a point to return the next morning when the forecast called for blue skies and scattered clouds.

I started off photographing this Maple tree from the other direction so that I could include the Seaside Park sign.  As the sun rose, I moved to this side of the tree and found the light reflecting brilliantly off the tree’s red leaves making them glow with color.  It doesn’t get much better than capturing a maple tree at peak foliage in the familiar surroundings of Marblehead.
