Re: Seeking Tunnel/Canopy locations

Great! Now all I have to do is to keep looking for those elusive tunnels. :) CT, I know this is off-topic but given your expertise I'm going take the opportunity to ask if in your opinion it makes any sense to head west, or south, after VT. Or just call it a day, go home, settle back and savor the ...

Re: Peak reports

No dis-service to forestry folks (even if they do call back), but hands down your best source of foliage conditions information are the people who post on this forum. The hard-core photographers and leaf peepers who post actively here will give you much more specific advice about locations, down to ...

Re: Red leaves

I would explore Rt. 114 for 10 or 15 miles both north and south of Island Pond, and like I said wander around the back roads that go off from Rt. 114 as well. It was a bonanza of red maples in 2018.

Re: Red leaves

In the area around Island Pond Vt, along Rt.s 114 and Rt 105 there is a high concentration of red maples. The shoreline of nearby Jobs Pond in Newark has a lot of red maples too. The hillsides in this general area have a lot of red. get lost exploring the back roads in this area and I'm sure you wil...

Re: Photog Ed McGuirk in Nature Photographers Network, excellent article: The Colors of Spring – The “Other” Foliage Sea

I'm glad you enjoyed the article Carol. The colors of spring foliage are a very close second for me as well, and in some ways more exciting than autumn because spring is just so energetic and full of growth and rebirth. In another 7 to 10 days the colors of spring foliage should be in full swing in ...

So glad you enjoyed the article UtahBaker, thanks for taking the time to read it. Even in late May the trees in Vermont will still be in nice lime green colors, so I wish you good luck with your May trip.

Re: Photog Ed McGuirk in Nature Photographers Network, excellent article: The Colors of Spring – The “Other” Foliage Sea

Thank you for posting this here ctyanky. I'm sure some of our Fall foliage fanatics here at SOV will appreciate the parallels between autumn foliage colors and the more subtle, but still beautiful colors of spring foliage. For a few weeks each spring, the hardwood forests of New England put on displ...

Re: Tamarack Trees

Tim thank you for the report, and advice on timing. If I want to catch the tamaracks in prime condition, it sounds like I may be batter off waiting until next year, and going during late October. But again, thank you very much for the information and locations.

Re: Tamarack Trees

Carol, thank you for the report. Your photos of the tamaracks look great. What appeals to me about them is they turn color after everything else is done, so the their color really stands out from the rest of the landscape. I had some other obligations this past weekend, so I did not go up. But based...

Tamarack Trees

I'm interested in visiting the Northeast Kingdom to photograph tamarack (larch) trees once they have turned yellow. I'm looking for any reports from Vermonters on the tamarack color progression. I believe the first two weeks of November are usually a good time, but don't know if they too are running...

Re: SouthWest VT 10/15-17 report and slideshow

Really nice slideshow markm, I enjoyed watching it very much. You did a great job of capturing a sense of place, despite having less than ideal foliage conditions. Still plenty of interesting things to see in Vermont, even if the foliage isn't fully cooperating.

Re: My Photos from Vermont 2018

Ed: next year (after seeing your photos) I am definitely climbing Nichols Ledge. You compared the view to Owls Head and determined it was more dramatic and you liked it better. Less obstructive views? Did you go back to Quabbin? Update? CT Yes I prefer Nicholls Ledge over Owls Head for photography,...

Re: Vermont travel Oct 29 Nov 2 - Color ??

That is certainly too late for color almost anywhere in Vermont, even in a normal year. And this year we have had a lot of rain, and even worse wind that took down a lot of leaves. There might be some color at that time on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, although if the windy pattern of this week persist...

Glad to have been there for Jobs Pond that morning. :D
Thank you standupphotog, it certainly was a special morning, the reds at Jobs Pond were at full peak, and the light was so strong that everything seemed to glow.
