Re: Connecticut Foliage October 2017

Thanks for photo evidence that at least something is happening with foliage up in the N/NW corners of CT. Down here by the south eastern shoreline, it has been one of the most lackluster fall foliages I have seen in years. Leaves have been drying up, turning brown and getting stripped - remaining fo...

Re: The Great Fall Get Together

Hi all, I am finalizing my annual VT foliage trip and a night-time galaxy shoot at Noyes Pond seems like something I would love to get to. A question for NEK dwellers ...trying to secure a house for the week of Oct 4th and I might already be too late. If anybody wants to make some suggestions for a ...

Re: Frankenstorm!

Yikes, here we go again. This one is going to be one for the ages ... a double storm - clash of tropical storm with nor'easter. Worse, it will be 800 miles wide when it makes landfall and since it is going to hit between New Jersey/New York, up here on CT coastline we are going to get a big share of...

Re: VT is BEAUTIFUL, but...

Ah, the weather kvetching thread. Let me join in... it was the best foliage season in years and the worst weather I have experienced in Vermont in years. Despite every weather forecast predicting "dry and sunny with occasional showers" it was overcast and rainy throughout from Sept. 30 to ...

Re: The Peacham SOV Meetup has been CANCELLED- yucko weather

Yeah, I was gonna wimp out after peeking outside my window this morning. I almost feel that I am the one responsible for the crappy weather in what appears to be the best foliage year in the past several. It was supposed to be dry and sunny when I set out on this trip but it seemed like the clouds f...

Re: Seyon Pond/Seyon State Park

These are fantastic photos in every respect. These are the kinds of pictures I come to Vermont in foliage season to capture but I get may be one or two of these every year :shock: The incredibly talented photogs on this forum just make me feel I should shelve my camera and just enjoy the foliage, wa...

Re: Jobs Pond at Sunrise

Ok, see thats what I am talking about ... exactly the shot that has eluded me for at least 3 years. That is a spectacular photo and you got there at the right time in a great foliage year. Last year at Jobs Pond was a skunker ... by the time I got there it was a bunch of sticks. This year though, I ...

Re: Tossing Around Ideas for VT Fall Foliage Meetup - 10/4/1

Hi everyone, Is this idea still up or did it get shelved? I will be in the NEK on 10/4 and it would be great if you guys dont mind adding one more car to the back-roads caravan. It would be fun to meet up with other foliage crazy folk and follow the expert guides to the VT back roads. You guys do st...

Re: NY Adirondacks - Worth Driving Through?

The Lake Placid / Lake Saranac / High Peaks region of the Adirondacks is spectacular in autumn, and from all the foliage forecasts this year is pretty good. Although it might be worth it to drive through, to really get the impact of this area you have to stop and spend a few days camping and hiking ...

NEK - Gimme all your best-kept secret photo locations

A yay and an ack. Yay, I have secured lodging in Barton for Oct 3 through Oct 7 and this year seems to be on track to be quite spectacular. Last year was kind of lackluster; my best photos from last year were of unusual weather/light rather than foliage. Ack, because I am planning to meander into VT...

Re: Views From Owls Head This Morning 10/8

Wow, nice shots. I seemed to have got up there not long after you - the sun had burned off all that fog, but the light was kinda flat.I still got some acceptable pics with a polarizer and a graduated neutral density filter (musts for late rising foliage peepers :roll:). I wasnt sure about that gate ...

Re: Phil's photos phrom NH Oct 3rd

Not to hijack your photo thread, but I did seem to retrace your NH trip today. Sure, I blamed the the kid for wanting pancakes at Polly's :oops: but I struck out for Sugar Hill, the Kanc and Bear Notch road hoping to see better color than the NEK has right now. NH has flashes of better color - Franc...

Re: No Moose Yet But There is Still Hope....

Ok, I saw the moose you have been looking for. It was the highlight of my wanderings yesterday (Tuesday) which otherwise was a perfectly blech day...gloomy and grungy with not a sliver of sunlight. I saw the biggest bull moose with honking big antlers - he scrambled onto the road fifty feet in front...

By the time I went past Chester/Ludlow (no color whatsoever until there) the clouds looked very omino...
