Vermont

D20 7709 sharpened Vermont I’m in Vermont for a family visit. When I come up here I’ve been photographing this one farm for several years in various light and weather. There’s something about the way this farmhouse looks that just draws me to it. I’ve posted some of my earlier photos of it on here before.

The above photo was taken mid-morning today. The one below, right as the sun was setting. Tomorrow I hope to try a shot at sun up. There should be frost on the ground then.

Of course, you all know that to do a photo like this this it’s important to find just the right camera position and to be able to repeat that placing of the camera. I don’t mind minor variations in the crop and composition, but the point of view needs to be pretty much the same. I’ve walked all over the place and tried many different camera positions before settling on this one. It happens to be that I shoot these out the living room window of my mother-in-law’s house. That’s the only place that gives me the right elevation to clear a bunch of obstructions. I’ve tried walking closer, but there is a serious slope between my mother-in-law’s house and this farm, so moving closer destroys the composition. So I’ve just had to settle for shooting from the comfort of the living room. That will make the dawn photo tomorrow a bit easier than if I had to go hiking.

I’m on a dial-up connection up here. My mother-in-law hasn’t joined the world of the internet. So I won’t be on here much until we return home next week. But meanwhile, enjoy the sights of Vermont.
