As a former meteorologist at the Mount Washington Observatory and a current science teacher, Jim knows New England foliage. From the first color predictions in mid-August until the last leaf falls, he keeps tabs on the weather, forest health, and most importantly, the fall foliage colors throughout New England and shares his insights and observations with NewEngland.com all season long.
But that’s not all! As a photographer, Jim is also out chasing peak color in his favorite spots, hoping to capture the very best of autumn through his lens. Jim’s images have graced our magazine, posts on NewEngland.com, and most importantly, Yankee‘s foliage forecasts, for nearly a decade. The images here are some of his recent favorites, showing beautiful but rare moments of the calm, quieter times out and about during autumn in New England.
