Summer scenics?

Any suggestions from the locals on summer scenics? Fields of wild flowers? Good barns? Good overall scenes? :D :D

Of course, Gretchen, it depends on what you are interested in photographing. With green foliage on, I am sure many of the fall foliage scenics would look great. Of course, in some cases, the foliage may obscure the main subject or parts of it.

Also, there are some great shots from up on some of the Mountain outlooks (e.g., Mansfield and the Equinox). I never tended to spend much time around Lake Champlain, because I grew up in a Lake Michigan town, but there are some really nice scenics involving sailboats in the harbor in Burlington and up arount St. Albans.

At this time of year, I would also think you might get some really nice "pattern" shots around farms with hay mowed in rows and down on the fields.

Just a few thoughts
Andy

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

Hi Gretchen,
Have you taken your summer trip to VT yet? Would love to see some of your images. I spent this past weekend shooting in the NEK. I led 15 members of my camera club on a weekend NEK photography trip. Here's a few of my images and where they were taken:
This first one is sunset taken from Darling Hill road in Lyndonville/East Burke. The farmer was a wonderful man who allowed us access onto his property to photograph the sunset.

Here's the sugar bush from Monroe's Sugarhouse in Barton VT. Steve Monroe and his wife Terri gave us a wonderful tour of the sugar house and the sugar bush up the hill on their proerty. The ight was magical.

Loved the way the light was hitting this fern:

Robillard Flats Farm in Irasburg: I have photographed this round barn on other occasons, and this time was looking for a unique viewpoint and was happy with this shot.

One more from darling Hill Road:

No matter what the season, there's beauty to be found in Vermont!

Carol,

These are STUNNING!!! No, haven't been to VT yet, and probably won't. My truck is still undergoing major repairs, and without it, we can't bring along the dog. At this point, with a PA trip planned soon, and school starting in late August, I don't see it happening.

I just LOVE that first shot, absolutely AMAZING! :)
Gretchen
