"Seasons Come and Seasons Go"

I was reading today and noting the irony that as the colors peak and leaves fall off (unlike Vermont, Michigan went at least a week early and I have seen MAJOR leaf drop between Monday a.m. and this morning), so does the intensity of posting here. Seems like maybe that "peaked" last week. Its always sad to see that happen. Kind of like a "same time next year" vacation, to see everybody come back here and say our hello's, exchange ideas, images, routes and information. Do drop in here once in awhile during the year. And hopefully, we can keep a year-long conversation going on the Photography Forum.

It has been great to reconnect with everyone here, and to see Vermont vicariously through many of you. Please keep posting your images as you get them processed!

Warm regards,
Andy

If it sounds too good to be true, its probably . . . .

Jeezum Crow Andy. We had 5 perfect leefpeeping days here. We ain't got time to do no forums.
I was up in Eden today and notice some leaf loss. The trees still had a lot of leaves, but bare branches are showing up. Now our weatherlady is predicting 2 days of rain and 2 days of unsettled weather.

I noticed that 'traffic' on the forum seemed lighter than in years past.... but, hopefully, we will hear some reports from newcomers and people who are up in VT this week :-) I think that much of VT had a GREAT foliage season but worry about all of the businesses who lost customers and $$ this year due to Hurricane Irene and the decrease in tourism. Every single person I spoke with reported a very significant loss of customers due to cancellations and/or lack of reservations and business. Not surprisingly, most talked about it in a very matter of fact way - no whining, no complaining and an overall sense of 'we'll get through it'.
VT has already done a LOT of re-building of roads and bridges but there is more to be done. I'm thinking of trying to make a long weekend trip sometime this winter to do my small part to support the state.

I hope to get out and get some more photos this weekend. Every day this week on my commute to work I have noticed GREAT color. I was just amazed and Bolton and Richmond yesterday. Everything just seems to be popping out at once. It's honestly some of the best color I have seen in those areas in years. A lot of reds too! Hopefully the rains won't knock too many leaves out of the trees.

Hi everyone,
I'm home now from my second VT trip. It was great to reconnect with all of the regular posters here on the forum. I hope to see you around here or on the photog forum during the off season.
I have some images to post. Will go do that now I suppose. Hope you all enjoy what remains of the Autumn season.
Carol
