A Splash of Color

A Splash of Color

Lincoln Vermont

Lately things are looking a little stark and gray in northern Vermont. The mountains are getting snow, but it’s been pretty quiet in the valleys. I’ve been out with my camera every weekend, but taking photos this time of year can sometimes be a challenge for me.
For inspiration, I’ve been combing through some of my photos from last summer and fall. I recently came across the above photo, which was taken in the town of Lincoln over Columbus Day Weekend. (See related post: Columbus Day Weekend.)
It will be a while before the grass is green again and even longer before the leaves change. In the meantime, I’ll be taking a photography class at Burlington City Arts. Nothing like a class to fuel some creativity.

    Beautiful Erica! Look at that green, green grass … *sigh* I’ll bet it was a wonderful Fall afternoon.

    Today isn’t too bad down here by the seacoast. It could definitely be much colder so I’m not complaining. It appears winter is taking a break in New England this year.

    Oooohhh Lincoln,… what a neat little town. Have you tried the road out of the village to the south (along the little river) that eventually comes out near Rutland?

    Another lovely barn scene. I never tire of them.

    What a lovely shot! It’ll be green before we know it. February is half over already. That’s crazy!

    Have fun in your photography class! I want to take one of those classes soon.

    Great shot, Erica. I made my excursion to Vermont about two weeks too early.

    Thanks Sharon. It does seem like winter is taking a break, but I’m beginning to wonder if we’re going to get hit with some big storms in March.

    Hi Cedar, I haven’t tried that road, but I’ll check it out at some point. I love all of the back roads around Lincoln and Bristol. Such a beautiful area.

    Thanks Erin! It’s a good place to be.

    Hi Linda. I know, you can never get enough of them!

    Hi Alyson — great to hear from you! Time is definitely flying! Winter usually goes by slowly, but this year it’s really going by quickly.

    Hi Steve — I think the colors were a little late last fall. Columbus Day Weekend is usually a good bet for leaf-peeping!
