My annual Vermont Fall Foliage Photography workshop is my favorite of the year. I get to do it from my house, there are tons of beautiful images to be made and I always meet great people from around the world. This year’s crowd is wonderful as usual with people coming from Australia, England, Mexico, Florida, Alabama, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.
We started last night with my traditional spaghetti dinner, it is amazing how quickly people get to know each other when sitting around the dining room table, eating, drinking a little wine and talking photography.
The foliage is running late this year, I’m not even sure it is going to peak, it seems to be an off year, but we headed 90 minutes north to find what we could. I did a scouting trip up to the Peacham area yesterday morning with friend Lisa Lacasse and we found some decent color, so I knew it would look better here than in the Woodstock area. Hopefully the cold nights we are having will quickly turn the leaves close to my house.
The great thing about Vermont is that even if the leaves aren’t showing tons of color, it is still beautiful. We started in Peacham and then went down to the Groton State Park area and shot around a couple of ponds there. We were able to make some really nice shots and got to see lots of the countryside.
