Vermont. October 10, 2011

I took the day off today to cruise around Southern Vermont, hoping to find something photographable in this Season of Colors.  But I was being herded by Big Traffic and I got to pull over less frequently than I might have liked if I were truly in charge.

The resultant haul is almost entirely shot out of my driver’s seat, with the motor running and passing cars buffeting me with their highway-speed turbulence.

A hillside along Route 7:

A closer up shot of the action at roadside:

Windmills along a ridge in Searsburg:

More roadside colors:

A swamp maple doing its swamp maple thing:

…and, a bit further on, the famous mooses of  Bennington, painted like they’re on a mission:

There are dozens of these all about town, nearly all painted in the most non-representational way.  But that’s what I expect from the fine folks Up North – a different perspective.


Well, it’s late and I have to get up early, so that’s it for now.

Awesome photos. When I go around in my car and take pictures out the window I call it “Drive by shooting” – you got some great drive by’s there.

Those skies look so crisp next to the foliage. All of our leaves are long gone, but with the exception of the freezing nights, we’ve had a nice week. That’s been a blessing beause I’m a bit behind on getting things ship-shape before the snow flies.

Thanks for the beautiful colors Ralph!

Jay, Vikki, thanks. It’s finally starting to “turn” locally, with stands of maples coming on strong, so for the next week or two I won’t have to drive so far to take photos of colors!

Sorry you got pushed along by the traffic but you managed to catch a couple of keepers – like the magnificent swamp maple. Nice.

Thanks Susan. Yeah, there was a lot of shoot-and-run from the breakdown lanes, but it was really pretty and I didn’t mind so much.

Ahhhh-tumn. Beautiful as always.
