I started Wednesdays in Marblehead twelve years ago and have tried to explore every part of this town but, two weeks ago, I happened upon a new spot on the back of Waterside Cemetery. I found this amazing composition with a tree’s branches perfectly framing the view of gravestones and revisited this spot four times until I found peak color on Sunday.

With the different shades of yellow and orange layered in the canopy and the side light casing long shadows from the gravestones, this may be my favorite fall view of Marblehead. If you look at this on a large screen, you might find the one leaf falling through the air lit up by the sun.

Have you ever visited Hawthorne Avenue in the fall?
