Since we’re so close to New England, the fall colors on Long Island are generally overlooked. We have no mountains, but we do have wetlands. Here on the east end, the wetland foliage is now at its peak and Trout Pond in Sag Harbor is especially vibrant. Late yesterday afternoon I photographed these leaves in the muddy shallows along the south end of the pond. It’s a pleasant hike along the edge, and if you’re feeling ambitious, you can continue onto the trails which climb the glacial moraine south of Sag Harbor. There you enter woods dominated by oaks and Mountain Laurel.
