Across Connecticut — from Greenwich to Killingly — the colors of autumn came through again this year, a calming counterpoint to the ongoing pandemic and the chaos of the national election. The CT Mirror’s Yehyun Kim travelled around the state to capture these images over the last few weeks.

The summer’s hot, dry weather encouraged leaf season to begin slightly earlier than usual, but the colors delivered and held on, despite a few blustery days. Snow in the last days of October brought down most of the leaves that were still hanging on in the northern parts of the state.

Yehyun joined CT Mirror in June 2020 as a photojournalist and a Report For America Corps Member. Her role at CT Mirror is to tell visual stories about the impact of public policy on individuals and communities in Connecticut. Prior to joining CT Mirror, Yehyun photographed community news in Victoria, Texas and was a photo and video intern at USA TODAY and at Acadia National Park in Maine. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Yehyun was born and raised in South Korea.
