Favorite sunrise spots

Postby lirwin13 » Wed Sep 17, 2008 10:25 am

Hi all,

Does anyone have any favorite sunrise spots in the central/northern Vermont area? I'll be in the Woodstock area Columbus Day weekend and am hoping for a new location for sunrise. I've done Jenne Farm (and will probably go back one morning while I'm there) and East Corinth. Are there any other places that are particularly photogenic at sunrise? Thanks for your input!

Laura

Hi Laura and welcome to the forum.
If you are in the Northeast Kingdom area (this is from Barton) take Burton Hill Road. A few miles up on the right you will see a farm with views of mountains on the right. The sun rises over these mountains:

When finished here continue up the road. There will be a series of "roller coaster" hills. At the top of one of these hills, there will be a farm at the bottom, then the valley below, and views of Jay Peak and other mountains in the distance. This is a great spot for SUNSETS, but it's also nice in the early morning after sunrise.....especially if there's fog in the low lying areas:

When done here, continue a few more miles and you will come to Irasburg common. There is a white church with maple trees on either side of it. here's a winter shot from there:

From there,Turn left (West) after the common onto Vermont 58 (14 and 58 have a
complex junction in Irasburg. For a ways, about 1 1/4
miles, they share the same roadway). Follow 58/14 West
for about 1 1/4 miles and the roads again branch, with 14
continuing North, and 58 turning left (West). Take the
left turn and you will see a round barn up ahead on the left. I took this picture early morning after sunrise following the above route:

I hope this helps!

Hi Laura: Nice to see you back again. From Woodstock, you might try the Sleepy Hollow Farm on Cloudland Road. You would be facing West for the shot. It isn't as easy a composition as it once was, and some of the "quaintness" is gone with modernization. But there still are shots possible. There is a pond in the front (to the East) of the main barn which has some possibility for reflections. Its only a short distance from Woodstock.

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

Hi Carol and Andy,

Thanks so much for the input and especially the photos Carol. I haven't really explored the Barton area yet in foliage season (although I spent a good amount of time at Lake Willoughby growing up, mostly in the summer though), and your photos look like it's a great area. Perhaps I'll head up there one morning! I have done Sleepy Hollow Farm in the past, although I've been there later in the morning.
Thanks again for the suggestions!
Laura
