Red Vermont barns look good on a cloudy day

It was another cloudy Vermont day. There are people who say that taking pictures of colorful foliage when it is cloudy gives you good color saturation. That doesn’t fly with me. Sunshine makes for better photos. But I’m not going to see the sun shine for a couple of days so I’ll concentrate on other things. There is plenty in Vermont to shoot. Like barns.

A final autumn leaf holds on to a maple tree in Pomfret, Vermont.

After photographing the barn, I went to my favorite tract in Pomfret. It is owned by a neighbor in Woodstock and I’ve been given permission to hike it anytime. There is a large stand of evergreen trees, so I hiked through there. It is pretty hilly and I was walking in deep needles and leaves. It was very soft and I could feel a good strain on my calves when climbing the hills. I saw a maple tree mixed in with the evergreens. One lone leaf clung to a branch. Even though most trees still have plenty of leaves, this tree is done for the season.
