For autumn color photography at the peak of fall foliage season, this newsletter points out the best places along the back roads through the rural New England states. Where to find the best covered bridges, old barns, and sugar shacks. Where to set up your camera for classic images, as well as the back road scenes of Vermont's charming villages and rural landscapes. This issue starts in the north and follows a great looping route around northern Vermont, pointing out the best locations and the best times to be there with the right lens. From St. Johnsbury to Stowe and then south through the Green Mountains to Woodstock and more great locations.
Much of the architecture of New England dates back to the 1700's and, like many photographers, the older the subjectthe better I like it. If I spot a crumbling old farm with a leaning silo and a sway-backed barn, all weathered-out in beautiful silvery, shades of gray, I'm happy. The people of New England, the history, the unique architecture, the landscapes--all these things are good reasons to bring me back. Most of all I return for the color. As a color photographer, there's nothing I enjoy more than the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire when the sugar maples, the beech, the birch, and the hickories have reached the peak of their autumn color. That moment, when the last of the green chlorophyll disappears, and the sugars in the leaves have returned to the winter storehouse of the roots, and just before each leaf turns brown, withers, and falls to the ground. During those last few days of another cycle of life is when I want to be standing on the top of a hill in Vermont with my camera and my tripod.
