In the words of Sarah Orne Jewett, late summer is a time when “the spirit of autumn takes a first stealthy flight, like a spy, through the ripening countryside.” Your August photos captured this spirit in the plump fruit of white baneberry, in velvet antlers of deer and elk, and in hawkweed and fireweed going to seed. Autumn may be lurking, but the strength of summer still shines through these images like the sun through morning mist.
We’re now looking for September 2017 photos that relate to northeastern forests. These could be images of plants, wildlife, weather, forest management, wood processing, educational activities, recreation, art, landscapes, or events. To submit your photos, please use the form below. Thank you!
Submission Deadline for the September Gallery: Monday, September 25, 2017
