Re: Bad Info

Mimi, would appreciate some routes in CT, especially with misty ponds, rippling streams or waterfalls. Thanks.

Re: Bad Info

I seconded the other poster's comment about Berkshires MA. Was there on 10/11, and the colors were not as vibrant as previous years. From Erving to Shelburne Falls, there were muted yellow orange but little red. At first I thought that I was early and told a local that I would return in a week or so...

Re: Bad Info

As mentioned by many, this site is one of a kind. You get accurate and detailed info from those on the ground *without* *any* *hidden* *agendas*.(Well, except for their VT pride.) I have learned the hard way by visiting other (state) sites or calling local chambers of commerce and visitor centers. T...

Re: Photographing Foliage Abstracts

If you like abstract flora photos, check out Freeman Patterson's and Tony Sweet's sites. http://www.freemanpatterson.com/ http://www.tonysweet.com/ In their books, they generously and accurately offer the techniques on how to capture such images. Highly recommended. "Photo Impressionism and the Subj...

Gallery September folder

Note to moderator. The Gallery's September folder seems to suggest two images, but would open with none. Not a complaint, but just FYI. Heck, September is over!

Re: Foliage and water

Thanks for everyone's inputs. Yes, I have been using long exposures (on a tripod) to capture silky water falls and rippling streams. Pray that there is no breeze and the foliage is still. Spot meter on the brightest water area and dial down two stops. That's how I preserve highlight details on trans...

Re: OT: any update on NH?

Wish there is another forum I can post this. So at the risk of offending the moderators, here's an update on NH as of 10/5. Along 93 south of 122 is still way too early. 302 and north is past peak. Franconia Notch, 122 (Kanca) E and W are at peak with little leave lost. Sugar Hill and around (117, 1...

Foliage and water

I'm working on capturing foliage with water, e.g. misty ponds, waterfalls, and rippling streams, etc. I also find abstract color reflections in water can be done on bright sunny days. PWT provided some location suggestions in the other forum, but more would be appreciated. Also ideas and techniques ...

OT: any update on NH?

PWT, in a post a week or so ago, you mentioned that northern NH looked good. If possible, can you provide an update on the 112 and 302 loop? I'm trying to combine VT and NH in one (long) trip. I understand you are "sensitive" about the "other states", and hope that you are not offended. <g>

Re: Peacham/Groton, oh yeah !!

I think that the most recent images can provide much more accurate information about the current status. Text can only convey so much. And everyone wants to know what is happening NOW. If the page's search engine is based on the image file names, and the image file names can be edited, perhaps attac...

Re: Peacham/Groton, oh yeah !!

PWT, thanks for the image, but I had to go to the Contributors page to locate it. Is there a way to display the images chronologically, most recent first, on the Foliage-Vermont Photos page?

Re: Photographing in 1st & 2nd week Oct

PTW, thanks for clarifying the dirt road condition. Also, according this site's foliage map and the recent reports, my estimate that the NE Kingdom peak will be over in the 1st week of Oct is wrong.

Re: Photographing in 1st & 2nd week Oct

PWT, thanks for the tips. It sounds like that the 1st week of Oct will be passed peak for the NE Kingdom this year? I may consider next week for the Grandville and Rochester area, and the following week for Rt 9, etc. Can my little Jetta handle the dirt roads you referred to? Hate to call a tow truck.
