Route 100

Sights like this one are some of the finest in New England if you love rural areas and farmland. With the Green Mountain’s as a backdrop the river valley’s of Vermont have been fertile farming areas for a long time, and they were shining brightly on this early autumn afternoon along the winding roads.

Stars and Stripes

Barns are a piece of classic Americana and are a common theme when driving around the hills of rural Vermont. This scene in Woodstock was made a little bit more classic with the American Flag perfectly draped across the doors of this white horse stable on a late summertime afternoon.

Barn Land

The vintage barns that line so many of the hillsides of Vermont are some of my favorite architectural elements of the New England landscape. They are almost like lighthouses of the land in many ways, structures that stand through wind and rain and serve as an important tool within our lives as well.

This one is simple and beautiful and and certainly situated one some of the finest land in the area atop the hills of Woodstock.

Start of Fall

This roadside scene along Route 100 had so many things that I think of when I think of Vermont. A quaint home, maple syrup for sale, a mountain backdrop, and a touch of fall color are all priceless details that make the Green Mountain State shine.

Switching Seasons

It’s the time of the year where it feels like summer flew by, and from the looks of things in Vermont just a few days ago, fall is here. The colors descend upon the Vermont landscape a bit sooner than elsewhere in New England with the cooler temperatures around the Green Mountain landscape, and this barn and birch tree sure had it all for an early autumn landscape scene. It’s one of my favorite times of the year within the landscape, and catching the scenery while still vibrant but changing at the same time is one of my favorite times for making pictures around here.

Barn Edge

There is so much to love within the rugged and vintage landscape of Vermont and when I am up there I find myself driving from spot to spot with a limitless availability of spots to explore. The history and tradition of the barns nested on the lands is fascinating as well as pivotal to our history here in the New England area, and while most of the barns have a weather beaten and worn in look to them, it’s precisely why they shine with so much architectural beauty and they have become a staple of the landscape of the area.
