This Is Why We Live Here

The past couple of weeks have been spectacular.* This has been one of the most astonishing, longest-lasting autumns I can recall. Every day brings new beauty.

Soon, of course, all the leaves will be underfoot. That’s the way it happens. Trees will be bare, and before we know it the snow will fly.

Before that happens, here’s a special gallery: Fall in Westport and Weston, 2021.

    I’m so happy to know that autumn has been as utterly spectacular in my hometown of Westport as it has been in my new home place in North Carolina. No matter whether here nor there, it’s been a totally amazing fall to remember. Wow. Just. WOW!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous photos! Thanks for sharing them, Dan.

  4. Gorgeous! Lovely photos, stunning colors in the best of the autumn spectrum. Something we miss living in a different part of the country now — though we do have our own brand of beauty here.

    Thank you for sharing, Dan and all those who took these photographs.
