Backstreets

One of my favorite things to do around here is without a doubt to take a drive, and within the New England area I don’t think there are many spots better than along Route 100. The open lanes and landscapes are just stunning, and they feature both beauty within the moment but also strike up so many thoughts about the history along the scenic lands.

This slice of a backroad near the tiny town of Warren is the kind of road that is just a pleasure to cruise upon and take in the sights and sounds and fresh mountain air.

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.

Sliding in Stowe

I’ve visited a whole bunch of New England’s waterfalls over the past few years for project work, and Stowe is without a doubt one of my favorite regions for exploring. While Moss Glen certainly changes with the seasons there is hardly a bad time for a visit and it was roaring nicely on this summer morning after a healthy dose of rain the night before.
