Re: Honeymooning in New England the week of Oct 17th

We'll be in Vermont around the 21st and 22nd. I was hoping the fall foilage would still be in full swing but from reading now it looks like it will all be over. :( We're coming from Alabama and this is our first trip up to your part of the country. Are there any really nice towns to visit? We were ...

I have done the Stratton gondola ride. Unfortunately the weather was not my friend and humidity, wind, and cloud cover were all pretty high so I had pretty much the wrong conditions for long range photos. What I can advise however is that, once you exit the gondola at the top (ride was $10 I believe...

Al, absolutely great photos. I thought both of you did fantastically with the fireworks. The exposures were absolutely great. Question on HDR, does everyone just brackett or do you use an off-camera meter and specifically select your exposures to combine later? Sometimes, especially shooting places ...

Andy, those fireworks photos are wonderful. Would it be rude to ask what lense you used to grab those?

Thanks again. I noticed that their website's notice of when they close the drive down seems to conflict with a photo they show on their site with a couple sitting well into the sunset. As long as I can get up there after 4, I am hoping for pretty good light. Thank you gain for the great insights. Dean

Thanks for mentioning that. I have been up there before and never have gone to Lookout Rock. It is truly worth the walk then? Also, would you mind if I asked when in the afternoon you would recommend? We get in at 1 (at Albany) but I could always make Skyline Drive a post-"check-in at the hotel" ver...

Abby, thanks and good to be back. As I love photography and I love Vermont, I should spend more time here. I have to confess to being a bit intimidated by the photographic talent and depth of knowledge on display here. If you are in the area, I would also recommend Scott Bridge near Jamaica as an al...

I love that bridge. I do have to confess though that I never have climbed the rock ledge but have seen a lot of photos from that angle and it really allows you to get around some of the undergrowth and the bridge supports that otherwise detract from the photo. That time of year, you have a pretty go...

Too early to start discussing the coming season?

I hope this isn't too early to start discussing plans for the coming season. After years of going up solo, I am bringing my wife with me to give her some in-person experience with my beloved Vermont. We are only coming up for a short time (first time leaving the munchkin with somenoe other that each...

Sorry not to be able to contribute to the Thelma/Louise/Brad/Angelina/Catherine Zeta Jones cloud through which I just passed :D but yes, I am already planning my 2010 foliage trip. Last year I wanted to share Vermont with some friends and made it into a "guys trip" which resulted in us coming up way...

Yeah, that what I was thinking too. I am really sad that I couldn't come up earlier. I am trying to balance the schedules of four other people so the weekend of the 16th - 19th was the only time I could make it work. Looks like we'll be past the peak which is a shame. Usually I make it up during one...

Too early? Too late?

Thanks for the help.

Just a quick note to add in that Route 9 from Brattleboro to Bennington is a great ride if you've not done it before, and from what I can see here in the valley, should be getting very nice color-wise this weekend. Also worthwhile is Kelly Stand Road, a winding dirt road at the higher elevations go...

I made up a drive for some people so if you are up for a whole day of photo, enjoy if any part of it sounds good, glad I could help. Anyone's criticisms or comments welcome. Drive up the 30 along the West River. The river can make for some nice photos by itself. Then stop in Townshend for some photo...
