Massachusetts Fall Foliage: South Natick Sargent Footbridge

Central Massachusetts and the Greater Boston Area has many attractions that travelers are drawn to. New England fall foliage in this neck of the woods arrives mid to late October. No difference this year. I finally explored the possibilities of a wooden arch bridge that spans the Charles River. This footbridge is known as Sargent Footbridge and was built in the 1920's on the foundation of the Sawin Dam. This Natick historic landmark makes for fine photography in itself. Upon arrival however, I noticed a Great Blue Heron adding to the composition. The bird was quietly hunting for his dinner allowing me to set up tripod and Canon 5d Mark IV, equipped with a 70-200mm lens and 1.4 telezoom converter. The peaceful urban wildlife scenery did not last long as a bunch of kayaks came to close for the birds comfort.

Good light and happy photo making!
