Christmas Wonder

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving Day yesterday! I worked and then had dinner at my Sister In Law's. Our kids came over in the evening to visit. So much to be thankful for!

And so it that Thanksgiving is over the focus can shift to Christmas. I visited The Christmas Place in Abington with N and Melissa and Henry today. Oh my sweet baby Henry!!!!! He was filled with amazement as he is experiencing his very first Christmas and all of the wonder and excitement that goes along with it!

Sugar House Along Hazen's Notch Road, Vermont

Hazen's Notch (rte 58 from Irasburg to Montgomery VT) is a pretty forest road that I usually travel through at least once each Fall. This is a pretty sugar house along the road that I stopped to photograph last month.

Hill West Road Montgomery VT

Not to be confused with nearby "West Hill Rd."........Hill West Road in Montgomery opens up to a beautiful open field where you will find some beautiful horses grazing. The Fall colors were particularly beautiful on my visit to this road on Oct 5th.

Farm View, Barton VT

There are some days when we wish we could transport ourselves back in time and place. This is one of those days for me. I so wish I was sitting in one of the Adirondack chairs at Windswept Farm during peak foliage. Just for a little while........

Election Day 2016

The day has finally arrived. This Presidential election has left me literally sick to my stomach. I'm worried for America, and I'm embarrassed by my own country. I can't believe that this election has come to this point.
I'm heading out to the polls in a little while and can't morally cast my ballot for either of the major candidates. As an American, I will due my civic duty and will cast my vote for one of the third party candidates, which the thought of that doesn't thrill me, but at least I can hold my head high and stick to my own personal moral values. Yes, my vote will be "wasted" but I will have at least cast my ballot.
Just my opinion on my own blog........I do value others opinions so I certainly hope you will allow me the same.

God Bless America........these words are truly needed during these volatile times........

The Farm Stand At Holly Hill Farm Cohasset MA

Yesterday's blog post was about the trails at Holly Hill Farm, and today the blog is about the vegetables available for sale in the farm stand. As you know, I am a lover of all of the Summer fruits and veggies that I purchase at the farm stands, and here is a look at the Autumn harvest.

Holly Hill Farm Cohasset MA

I had a fun day yesterday with some friends walking the trails at Holly Hill Farm in Cohasset MA.

 It was a beautiful late Fall morning......was a bit chilly when we met up, but once we got moving we warmed up.
There was some nice late Fall color on the trees. Many trees are bare and stripped of all their leaves, but the late turning trees still had some color.
We took the trail that brings you out to the Ice Pond, which is a pretty little  (very little) pond surrounded on one side by a granite cliff, and surrounded on the other three sides by woods. This is my friend Diane taking in the beauty of the pond.

One of the stone walls with the last of the Fall color that we came across

This is Pumpkin. a 30 year old pony.

I'll share a few more images from here in another blog post.

Vermont Sugar Bush In The Fall

You may ask......what is a sugar bush? A sugar bush is an area of woods where maple trees are the predominate trees that grow. These maple trees are tapped in the Spring for their maple sap, which through a thorough process, is then transformed into delicious maple syrup.
And now you know......

This is a sugar bush that I photographed on a beautiful Fall morning.

Early Morning Light

On the final morning of my VT Fall trip, my first stop was to photograph the beautiful sunrise clouds over Crystal Lake, which you saw in a previous blog post. After that stop, I drove down Rte 5 and came across a field perched on a hill where there were a few horses grazing. I immediately pulled over, as I loved how the light was hitting the horses. I had to shoot up the hill to photograph the horses, and two of them quickly moved out of my sight. This left one horse who was curious (thankfully) and he stopped for a moment to look at me and to see what I was doing. I just love the way the early morning light was side lighting him.

There's nothing better than that beautiful low early morning light, in my opinion. It's so worth it to get up early to catch!

United Methodist Church West Burke VT

A classic New England scene is a white steepled church surrounded by peak Fall colors. I love these classic scenes, and this is one of them that I shot in West Burke VT. This was taken on a beautiful Fall morning, about one hour after sunrise.
