Braintree this evening 10/9

After seeing all the nice color along Route 12 today, I decided to look around 12A from Randolph around sunset.
Found a great view off of Thresher Road in Braintree. From Randolph, take Route 12A about five miles until you see Bent Hill Road on your right. You will see Braintree Elementary School from Route 12A. Bent Hill Road is right there. Take Bent Hill Road until the end, which is Thresher Road. Take a Right, and in about a Quarter Mile, you will see the most incredible views off to your right. The views continue for about half a mile. The color is incredible. Here are a few shots I took this evening. I think it would actually be better early AM, as all those layers in the background will be lit up, and they are full of color.

Pano of of of the views

A little tighter shot

Even tighter

Wow, those poplar trees are bright. Most of the ones I've seen are dull.

Excellent photos again Rich. I am going to check out these roads/views next year. Is 12A open now?
