A scenic adventure to the Belgrade Lakes.

Every summer, thousands of tourists flock to Maine to enjoy its natural beauty and splendor. Images of sailboats and red lobsters are how many tourists remember Maine. However, after living here for two years, I have realized that Maine's truly most spectacular season is fall. The flora of Maine is diverse, and, with the changing of seasons, creates a jaw dropping palette of colors. To capture some scenic fall shots of the surrounding area, I went on an adventure to the Belgrade Lakes. The first photo was taken just down the road from Colby College on Rice Rips Road. The rest of the photos were taken off of ME-11 and ME-27, both beautiful roads to observe the changing scenery of Maine.
It is amazing to see all of the small towns of central Maine embracing fall. Every restaurant seems to be serving some sort of pumpkin-apple dish or dessert. Even local gas stations are selling caramel apples! To me, this excitement of the changing seasons reveals the locals' appreciation for their homes and their environment.
