Last day of my Vermont trip and the sun finally came out–somewhat. At least the rain stopped. The cloudy/sunny skies made for some interesting lighting on the trees and buildings in the towns I passed through in northern Vermont.
This High Dynamic Range (HDR) shot is actually 3 of the same images at different aperture settings merged together in Photoshop. It was taken in the town of Montgomery.

Another rainy day in Vermont, and the rivers were swelled and running high. One photographic benefit from this wet weather is the fall colors become highly saturated.
Here are a few shots from around the towns of Cabot and Danville:
Will Tecosky, Co-Owner of Rainbow Sweets in Marshfield Village, VT
I passed through Marshfield, VT where I stopped for lunch at the Rainbow Sweets bakery & cafe, where co-owner Will Tecosky, with his showman’s style, served up B’stilla. This is a Morrocan-style chicken pie made with phyllo dough and minced chicken with cinnamon; and for desert, chocolate Cassata cake. Rainbow Sweets has been around 34 years and definitely worth stopping in for lunch or dinner.
After lunch I drove out to Peacham, a town founded in 1776. It’s said to be one of the most photographed towns in Vermont. You can see why here:
It’s not yet peak leaf-peeping season, but it’s pretty close. And if you travel around northern Vermont around Stowe and Craftsbury you can find some areas of vibrant colors. Here are a few shots. More to come over the next couple days.
