Fall in New England is meant to be photographed. We’ve all had that moment where we were driving along and saw a colorful fall scene calling out for us to stop and take a photo. However, there are some places that are better to photograph than others. Here are seven of the loveliest spots:


Billings Farm and Museum, Woodstock, VT

Billings Farm & Museum and foliage go hand in hand. You can get shots of the 1890 farm house, cows, horses, and sheep with the colorful fall leaves on the surrounding mountains. Billingsfarm.org


Grafton, VT

It’s nice to get foliage shots with iconic New England setting. Grafton, population 600, is known as one of the prettiest villages in the region. Many of its historic building have been restored to look as they did decades ago. www.graftonvermont.org


Crawford Notch State Park, NH

How can you pass up 5,775 acres of spectacular mountain views? Included in the notch is the beautiful Arethusa Falls, the perfect spot for fall photography.  www.nhstateparks.org


Echo Lake State Park and Cathedral Ledge, NH

A scenic trail around the lake provides great views of White Horse Ledge which towers over the lake, reflecting off the water. A 1.7-mile-long auto road and hiking trails lead to the top of Cathedral Ledge, with views across the Saco River Valley to the White Mountains. www.nhstateparks.org/visit/state-parks/echo-lake-state-park.aspx


Kancamagus Highway, NH

This is another sure to please photo opportunity. Designated an American Scenic Byway, it takes you through the White Mountain National Forest, with views of the Swift River, Sabbaday Falls, Lower Falls, and Rocky Gorge. www.kancamagushighway.com


Hogback Mountain, Marlboro, VT

This spot located on Route 9 is famous for its 100-mile view, where on a clear day you can see Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. www.hogbackvt.org


Quechee Gorge, VT

If you’ve never seen this gorge before, your first view will take your breath away. Actually, even if you’ve visited this spot, it will still make you gaze in amazement. Just don’t forget to pull out your camera and take some shots of the 165-foot deep gorge with the surrounding foliage. vtstateparks.com/quechee.html
