Arnold J. Kaplan Obituary

Postby Aspen » Fri Nov 08, 2013 11:15 pm

Arnold J. Kaplan was an icon on the Scenes of Vermont Fall Foliage Forum. Many who visited the Scenes of Vermont Fall Foliage Forum had the opportunity to learn of many beautiful scenes to seek out to visit while in Vermont. Although he was known to be an outstanding Photographer, it is through the Scenes of Vermont Forum that many got to know him. It is very sad to learn Arnold J. Kaplan will no longer be with us on this Forum but all he shared and his wonderful book:
How to Find (and Photograph) The Photo-Scenics in Vermont will continue to guide many to beautiful scenes in Vermont to which he took great effort in introducing to the public.
