Not really sure which to post as the main, so I just pick one. This was taken at Jenny Farm. There some famous shots of this farm appear in many magazine and it is well written up, so people flock here to take picture, especially in the morning at sun rise. I have seen line of photographers, 50 or more, just out side of the farm. I was shock to see, we came in the later afternoon, drove passed and take a few shots and left. I felt bad for the people living here having to deal with all the photographers day in and out.
The rest of the series are taken at many different locations throughout our Vermont road trip. I fell in love with the Vermont charm, would love to go back again soon.
great series Way, although I think something went wrong with the upload. I see all images double. But doesn't matter - twice as nice :0
Down on Jenny's Farm, isn't that a line from a Band song.
Numbers 3& 7 are my favourites.
Uhh yes I can imagine the folks moving "upstate" from the big cities like Boston and New York City and also driving down from Montreal in this time of the year. Meanwhile they have recoginzed the potential and even write some French words for the Quebec folks. But there is plenty of woods. If you fly to Maine, you realize that there is space for everybody - woods as far as you can see.
The series is wonderful each one of them, it shows rural Vermont perfectly. Actually everything is rural, even Burlington is not very big. Some of the towns could also be behind our tent ground we sometimes are. All the images contain a big slice of VT, there is even a sugar house (no. 7) prodcuing a stuff called "maple syrup". Would be neat to see the thing working in late February/March.
We're planning Vermont in the fall :-) Let's see if it works, the timing is not that good in 2019 since we have an event in November.
Here you show us really wonderful pictures and especially the large one is a treat. This landscape in autumnal colours nearly is touching heart. It is much too beautiful and atmospheric for "only" a road trip. Having a hike there at this time, receiving all the wonderful impressions must be simply great. What a gorgeous series of photos! Thank you for showing!
Greetings from very rainy Germany!
No wonder you were pondering which photo to select for the main one, as they are all so gorgeous with the bright autumn colours and excellent compositions. My favourites are #s 1,4,5 &6. An excellent contribution to the theme.
There is something wrong in the system, because there are now 15 images in the series and some of them are duplicates.
This IS a difficult choice!! Here the sweep of clouds and the bright leaves against the blue sky, make the image special. In #2 the clouds really POP! #3 may be my fave, viewing the pristine white church against the bluest sky from the security of the shadows is a real treat. Then along comes #4, with the quiet road passing through the light and shadow of the golden trees glowing against sky blue, and I waver. Is this one really best?? # 5 frames a perfect little vignette from the very secure shadow of two giant trees, maybe it's this one? #6 allows the well-framed curve of the road to make a fine focal point, while the bright trees make a delightful setting. Then again, I think #8 may be best with curving road leading to the red farmhouse highlighted by the shaft of light; while the fine detail of the Birch trunks balance the nicely-colored golden tree. Topping the scene is the great cloud detail. The pano is also great HLJ, Pat

Beautiful!!!! I think I have cycled some of these roads on a bicycle tour of Vermont that Joanne and I went on in the early 1990's. Some of these images look so familiar. Jo and I have talked about doing another "leaf peeping" trip but not on our bicycles but in a rented motorhome. This portion of the country is so picturesque....... Love it.
