These Are the Colors of Fall Around Here

I always get nostalgic for the beautiful foliage and crisp air in New Hampshire at this time of year, but we have a different set of colors (and some much warmer air) to love here in New Mexico. 

The skies range from deep blue overhead to a near-turquoise near the mountains. The chile plants are a dark green, and now that the green chiles have been harvested the scarlet of the red chiles starts to shine out in the fields.

Thanks, Beez, for that last photo. Mine was way out of focus.

Beautiful scenes. I love the truckload of chili peppers. What a wonderful pop of colour.

Gosh, that wagonload of peppers is wonderful! We see all kinds of crops going to market (on both sides of the country) but I think this is the neatest truck-full I've ever seen!!

(We've been in Hatch and will never forget the rooftops of peppers, but maybe it was too late to see the crops in the trucks.) Fabulous post.

Wow! all those chiles. It isn't too crisp here though we've had some frosts. The color is prettier every day. I've never been able to capture it, and find that even magazine professional photographers can't do it.
