Re: BEST SCENIC VIEWS/MUST SEE SPOTS!

In a conversation about the Fall Get Together, I posted this map of some of my SoVT favorites: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/The+Old+First+Church/Bennington+Battle+Monument/Chiselville+Covered+Bridge/Covered+Bridge+Rd,+Arlington,+VT+05250/Skyline+Dr,+Sandgate,+VT+05250/Dorset+Quarry/Emerald+Lake+S...

Re: The Great Fall Get Together

CT, Thank you and will do. I will, most likely, stay in my usual stomping grounds in Stratton/Manchester and venture to whatever point on the compass offers me the best options given the capriciousness of Mother Nature's calendar. Assuming that Manchester has color, I am definitely planning on visit...

Re: Another great NEK fall fest 9/19: "Colors of the Kingdom Autumn Festival 2015"!

That sounds great. Thank you for sharing this. My wife broached the subject of a second home in Vermont recently. When I see things like this, it makes me wish that it could be the primary residence. I grew up in a rural area and always have kept an idealized memory of small town America. I think Ve...

Legalities

All, I have had my website up for a bit and I get orders from time to time. I don't charge anything above the printing costs but, it is still a financial transaction. Which has me thinking: When do I need a release? Many of us shoot pictures with buildings in them. Do you contact the owner? Do you a...

Re: PHOTO LOCATIONS

To follow-up on Andy's mention of the Townsend/Newfane area, the Scott Bridge over the West River is a nice stop. It is to the right if you are coming from the Manchester/Stratton/Jamaica direction and on the left if coming from Brattleboro. There is a little parking area right by the bridge but, yo...

Re: Congrats to our own Charles (ixl) (2) two page spreads Vermont Life Autumn 2015!!!!

Loved the photos! AS soon as I saw my copy had arrived I started flying through it, looking for your shots. As I expected, they were great!

Congrats and so well deserved!

Re: In lieu of new Vermont photos...

Al, The comparison to fighting in a "burning building" is apt. People forget that military weapons today use "smokeless powder". The guns of that era used a far less efficiently burning form of gun powder. Also, the cartridges were (for the most part) made of paper, which also would have created smo...

Re: Blissful VT Summer Day - Stratton Gondola & Fire Tower Hike - Backroads galore!

CT, Did you happen to see any signs for how much farther Stratton Pond was from the fire tower? If I go up this year, I am thinking about a Lye Falls, fire tower, Stratton Pond hike (in whatever order makes sense) but, I want to be at either the pond or the tower before sun rise so that I can get so...

Re: In lieu of new Vermont photos...

Thank you and it is good to be back. I know that I have a spacing issues on those images. I have no idea why I did that. I didn't do it anywhere else and I always use a tripod at Gettysburg so, framing wasn't an issue. I have to chalk that up to sleeping for an hour, leaving at 10 PM, driving all ni...

Re: The Great Fall Get Together

Thank you both! I am still trying to determine what I want to do. Stratton has basic rooms for a very low price for the period I would be going so, I am really being pulled toward a return trip, even if I will miss the big get-together. I shall to re-visit a certain Vermont photography e-book and se...

Re: The Great Fall Get Together

I am so bummed. My travel (still up in the air as to VT or Gettysburg) won't be any earlier than October 7th. Unfortunately, working in investments, quarter end (Sept. 30) is crunch time so, I cannot really get away until business day four which is October 6th. I shall enjoy the get together, vicari...

Re: In lieu of new Vermont photos...

Utah, thank you! I have gone the last two years. Year one was a bit of a bust as Congress shut the park down for (what should have been) my first two days and days three and four were a rainy overcast mess. Last year, I drove all night and got in a day a half of good shooting before October rain and...
