Fall Pictures Opportunities
Some ideas on taking pictures around the Boston Commons
The Boston Public Gardens and Commons are a great location for fall foliage. You don't need to head to the Berkshires to see some great colors. You can find great color right in the city.
Four Tips on Taking Pictures in the Boston Public Gardens
- The best time to take pictures of the fall foliage in Boston is the first week of October. You'll get some great bright colors and some trees will still be very green.
- The spot over by the Parkman Bandstand is a great spot for pictures. The trees along Charles Street turn bright orange early.
- In the Public Gardens, the trees near the Ether Monument have great early colors. Also, the trees near the flagpole are great.
- The swan boats are taken out on the third Sunday in September. There is a slight chance that some trees may change before then. (Makes for a great backdrop photo.)
