“I took the photo a few years back when I moved here from San Diego, CA, after being in what some would say the best weather in the United States, and realized there is something heart warming, rejuvenating and serene about fall in Rhode Island," said MacCarthy. “Everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

“Some of the best fall foliage is right here in the Ocean State,” stated Joseph J. MarcAurele, Washington Trust Chairman, President and CEO. “Philip's photograph depicts fall in Rhode Island at its best.”
