I usually have more fun wandering than overly planning for shoots, and when magical light happens it’s something really special and makes for moments that I forever treasure. This one was just a magnificent scene as a summertime storm rolled through Pinkham Notch with blasting afternoon sunlight making for a silhouetted evergreen landscape within one of New England’s finest alpine areas. It’s a print I will always love.
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.
Working within the landscape of Vermont this summer has surely been one of my highlights of the past few months. As much as people feel magnetized by the autumn colors, I have say that personally I feel the full of life feeling that the landscape has within the summer months is probably my favorite season. I did a lot of land and farm scenery during my travels, and there were several days that had morning light more magical than my own dreams of landscape imagery.
I might be biased as a through and through New Englander, but i’d definitely say that Route 100 is among the greatest scenic drives on planet earth. The landscape is alive and vibrant in different ways all through the changing seasons and makes for a refreshing and energizing cruise whether on four wheels or two.
