North Fork fall foliage is at its best.
Last weekend marked peak foliage on Long Island and we put out the call for the North Fork’s Instagram shutterbugs to submit their local leaf peeping shots.
The photos we received captured the vibrant reds, brilliant golds and brown accents that make early November one of the most beautiful times of years.
Remember, follow @the_northforker on Instagram and tag your pictures with #northforker for the chance to be featured in an upcoming edition.

“This pic was shot at the Narrow River Marina (on Hallocks Bay) in Orient,using a DJI Phantom 4 drone. I personally love how it captures the beauty and serenity of the North Fork during the peak of fall.”

“I drive down Doctors Path often. A few days ago I noticed a field with patches of yellow flowers but I was unable to stop at the time for a photo.
“Just after sunrise this morning (Sunday) I ventured out for a few photos. The sun was positioned just right for this photo. I feel the north fork has so much beauty to offer the eyes and my camera, I love exploring and look forward to finding new areas to photograph.”

“I just happened to wake up from a lazy afternoon nap on Saturday and was treated to this spectacular light show out our living room window.”

“Photography is a new found love of mine. I have been eyeing the tree in the front yard for about a week. I had been shooting it from different angles for a few days, but didn’t have a photo that I was 100% happy with. My daughter Danielle came home from college for a quick visit this weekend. She immediately noticed how beautiful the tree was. She suggested to me a different spot to photograph the tree from. I took her advice and I finally had the shot I had been looking for.”

“This photo was taken at Laurel Lake Preserve and shows some of the fall’s beautiful peak foliage scattered on the ground with acorns the squirrels haven’t yet discovered to add to their winter stockpiles.”
