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.
The fall colors are an obviously popular part of the New England landscape, and while theres so much hype and they bring in all the tourists, i’ll always admit that it sure is a beautiful time of the years. This is a view from above within the historic Crawford Notch area which is a stretch of some of the most rugged terrain in the Northeast and these tracks used to do the brunt of the passenger transit back when the grand hotels ruled the area in a much different era than now.
With all the strangeness of these virus times we have been living in this summer i’ve put a lot of thought and emphasis into one of my favorite picture projects that i’ve worked on over the past few years, the waterfalls of New England. It’s something I never get tired of doing and in a time when everything about crowds is different than before, these hidden gems are what I think of as my favorite hiding spots within the land. Fall is right around the corner as I type this and I will always remember this rainy autumn morning within the leaf blanketed forests of Stowe when I made this picture.
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.
