Some Vermont Color

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 30 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This image was actually taken last year around our daughter's home in Essex Junction, Vermont (just east of Burlington). She lives in a gorgeous area, regardless of the season! There is no doubt about that. We love to visit any time of the year!

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"

Where did you take this one? I don't remember it. It went by so fast this year.

@Amy: Oh Hi Amy - Sorry, I missed your comment until now. I grabbed this last year when we were there for your Apple Tours, I believe out by Underhill...actually this may have been the year before when the colors were so awesome... I need to double check the EXIF data on my camera to be sure now that you mention it. Thanks hon - love you!

Becky from los angeles, United States

I always surprised at the colors that present themselves at this time of year - You would think growing up and seeing this would have gotten me use to the beauty! Terrific image Denny!!! A mountain of autumn bliss. And I love the little white accent clouds! : )
