I like Jeff's work very much! I also had no idea he administered so many groups, I just joined some since I'm New England based myself.

Congratulations on the Artist Spotlight, Jeff!

What beautiful photos, Jeff! I especially love the Vermont ones with the Fall leaves. Husband and I are watching reruns of Newhart. I don't know if you remember it, but he and his wife own an inn in Vermont. The opening of the program shows a car driving through Vermont on it's way to the inn and the scenery is so beautiful.

Thank you everyone. It has been an amazing journey so far and this Sunday being Easter was both a joy and a little sad πŸ˜₯.
I spent the day with my wife and we drove to Ipswich for ice cream at a new πŸ™ƒ ice cream parlor that just opened.
We drove around Cape Ann (Rockport, Gloucester, etc) walked Good Harbor Beach β›±.
But sad because I couldn't spend it with My sisters family.
Also this is my last Easter birthday πŸŽ‚. You see it only happens (aligns) a few times a century. So it happens 4 times this century. 2010 and 2021 but it will not be till 2083 till the next time.
So unless cybernetic bodies become a thing (quickly) I doubt I'll see another alignment.

But I continue to meet wonderful people here and around the world 🌎 maybe ill' make it to 124... πŸ˜€
But I take each day as it comes. Which is what we all do.
Thank you for the birthday wishes.

Thank you all the new commentors and Abbie of course...
My obsession (read as passion) for the fall colors has served me well over the years. First bringing me to Yankee Magazines notice and then both national and international note.

I do enjoy engaging with folks from around the world who come to New England for the fall colors.

This year I'll be adding my new skill set of drone footage and hopefully some wonderful airborne images of the fall colors.

I hope to continue searching for the fall colors for many more years... πŸ˜€

 

A blessed and happy birthday week Jeff! May you have many more and keep celebrating life!
