  • Late Fall Sunset on Lake Champlain
    Late Fall Sunset on Lake Champlain

    A November sunset over Lake Champlain. Afternoon sunsets in November and December can be hard to take. The shorter days and lack of light this time of year are not exactly what you would call uplifting. I happen to enjoy November in Vermont, but it's...

  • A Sense of Balance in Chelsea
    A Sense of Balance in Chelsea

    It's been years since I've visited the small town of Chelsea. Since returning to Vermont, the town has been on my list of places to see and photograph. Finally, this week, I went back. Located in Orange County, Chelsea is home to only about 1,250 residents....

    Our home in Burlington has a beautiful maple tree in the front yard. I love the contrast between the tree's yellow leaves and dark branches. In the right light, it almost looks like butterscotch and chocolate. Most of northern Vermont and the higher elevations are past...

  • The Early Show at Shelburne Orchards
    The Early Show at Shelburne Orchards

    Shelburne Orchards was featured on The CBS Early Show last week, and I was fortunate enough to be at the orchard for the live segment with weather anchor Dave Price. Every fall, a producer from the show contacts me for location suggestions in Vermont, and this...

    Bristol Pond is one of those perfect places to spend a sunny, fall afternoon. The pond, also known as Winona Lake, is a beautiful spot for canoeing, kayaking and fishing. The Hogback Mountains sit along the eastern border of Bristol Pond, making the area especially scenic....

    Fall in Addison County

    Over the weekend I traveled to Lincoln, Monkton and Bristol, which are three small towns in Addison County. These communities, located west of Vermont's Green Mountains and east of Route 7, are showing some of the most vibrant fall colors I've seen so far this...
