Fall is a magical time to be in Maine. Though I live in Florida, when October hits I can’t help but think of the crisp nights and amazing fall foliage in my home state of Maine. This photo was shot in the Rangeley Lakes region, as the sun was beginning to descend in the afternoon. Nothing beats those orange, red, and golden tones!
