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.
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.
As autumn approaches the harvesting of fields has been in full swing within the rolling hills of Vermont, and I was lucky to catch some of the field work going on finishing up the production of hay for the winter months. This late afternoon scene had a farmer running a John Deere tedder along the green hills with shades of fall foliage beginning to appear on the surround trees.
