It took a long time for the foliage to change this year.
It seems the colors are deciding to make up for it by staying a while.
There's still plenty of hangers-ons as bright as peak, and some just starting to change.
I was in Northampton at lunch-time, and decided on a slice of heartburn. I parked myself next to some samurai, and people-watched with them while I munched.

Later on I was in Amherst and was heading home when the sun was setting.
Prime photo time.

...and some great sunset-cloud formations today.
These particular clouds didn't go unnoticed to the keen eyes of Blogger Mary Carey and her Brian, and she put her camera to work right about the same time: http://aboutamherst.blogspot.com/2007/11/sunset-over-university-drive.html
