Re: State Foliage Report issued on September 30th, 2015

Colorchaser,

In what part of Vermont will you be based?

It looks like folks are running the length and breadth of the state so, someone will have you covered.

Re: RAGING WATERS!!! Moss Glen, Texas Falls, Rising Streams!

This is perfect!

I will shoot landscapes during the golden hours and venture into the woods to shoot waterfalls during the mid-day!

I hope everyone is having a great and safe visit.

Re: Of all things, now there is a tropical storm to deal with.

CT,

I was thinking the same thing about the waterfalls. This time of year they can be less than inspiring but, this rain will really set them off. Even a little color in the leaves and a full bore waterfall can make for a good shot.

Please be careful as there are flood warnings!

Re: Editing photos

I can see both sides of this but, I am leaning toward a degree of agreement with the author. That said, we are talking about degrees. This is obviously photoshopped: http://www.anvari.org/db/cols/Photoshopped_Animals/Photoshopped_Animal_07.jpg But, if I claimed, either as an outright lie or a lie of...

Re: Gear on the move

Al, I agree...normally. Unfortunately, I will not be able to scout the locations as I usually would. I am scouting this one via the Photographer's Ephemeris. This is due to my short schedule in Vermont, this year. There is a body of water in the valley so, I am hoping for morning fog and plan to sho...

Re: Heat coming back

I just got a frost warning from my Weather Channel app and it was for Manchester Center! There is hope!

Re: A Vermont Sense of Adventure and Seeking the Big Picture ....

Janice, I agree about that sense of discovery. I do miss when my touring of Vermont was with a fly rod in my hand rather than with a viewfinder to my eye. Don't get me wrong, I love photography but, too often, I am left with the disappointment that my shot doesn't capture the beauty of the moment as...

Re: Gear on the move

Another question from a stylistic/technique perspective: You are shooting a photo of a valley from one of the sides. You can only shoot from this particular location due to foliage coverage across the valley. The valley is a semi-circle so, I can shoot pre-sunrise, sunrise with sun in shot, sunrise ...

Re: Gear on the move

Al, Thank you and that was exactly the kind of feedback I was hoping to get. I don't think that is crazy at all. Honestly, I rarely end up leaving my main lenses behind. I have enough cases on the harness to carry three lenses. That allows me to carry my 11-16 (2.8f), 28-75 (2.8f) and my 70-200 (2.8...

Re: Gear on the move

I'll start off: 1. I am going to carry my 70-200mm and my wide angle. The first to pick out items in the valley that I want to isolate and the second for broad vistas. Definitely going to carry a split ND to control the light of the sunrise without losing the detail of the valley. On that note, do y...

Gear on the move

All, It is a gorgeous day and you want to wander a bit farther from the car than you might have in the past. A few scenarios present themselves. What lenses would you carry for each? What filters? Let's assume that tripod and cable release are a given but, if you do not believe that they are, mentio...

Re: Photos from Barton Sept 12 and 13

Carol,

I love the pictures with the leaves showing that green spine. So striking to have both colors be vibrant in the same leaf.

Thank you!

Re: A Vermont Sense of Adventure and Seeking the Big Picture ....

Love it and totally agree. On #1, that is a must do. And it ties in with #3. If you plan every minute of your trip (something that I tend to do, making my Vermont trips feel more like one of my days in the Army), the roads become a conveyance from spot to spot and not an experience unto themselves. ...
