Foliage pictures, Monadnock region

Earlier this month Mr. T happened to be working in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire.  He came home each day exclaiming over the beautiful foliage in that area.  On his last day for that job site, he took the camera along.  He took his time traveling home and got some beautiful foliage pictures which I am now going to share with all of you -- mostly photos without much explanation, since I wasn't there.  Enjoy!

This describes the style of bridge you will see in some of the photos below.  Impressive!

This is a double stone arch bridge!

I like this one which contrasts the colors with a field.
Love this one with the orange tree.

Hope you have enjoyed these photos from a very scenic area of New England!


  1. What outstanding autumn beauty!! I love the bridge and water shots especially!

  2. This is what comes to mind when I think Fall in New England. Thanks for sharing Mrs T!! It is absolutely beautiful. We have some color but it is not at its peak yet.

  3. Thanks for visiting, ladies! Aren't they beautiful? I love that double stone arch bridge. It is hard to fathom the craftsmanship that assembled that bridge with no mortar of any kind.

    I would say that our color is pretty much past its peak in our own area. The last few days have been drizzly, and many leaves have been knocked off the trees. Still lots of color, though.

  4. I have always wondered how these bridges are constructed. I went online just now and there is not a lot of info on them but there is a site that explains about the "keystone" which is the one stone that holds it all together. In the scripture it talks about Jesus being the cornerstone... that stone that marks the square corner of the building. I guess this would have been another great analogy. Our "keystone" is Christ. I guess they make a wooden frame and place the stones and then remove the wood frame. It's quite interesting. Just to think how many years these have stood through all the winters.. freezing and thawing. Looks like some of the stones have been lost. It's sad to see it in disrepair when obviously someone spent so much time building it to begin with. This is common construction in England but most of those bridges are maintained and still used.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful fall pictures.

  5. Thanks for doing all that research, Mrs. Doug! I knew that the one stone that holds it all together is called a keystone, but that's about all I knew! Thanks for sharing the neat spiritual application, too. Those old bridges have always fascinated me. The double arched ones like this are particularly impressive. I thought he got some great pictures. One benefit of traveling all over for work -- he gets to see some beautiful places.
