This time of year everyone can see what Mother Nature has in store for Vermont in the coming months. Vermont never ceases to amaze me. One of the things that I’m drawn to the most is how different the landscape can be and how quickly things can change. This is a perfect example of Vermont showing it’s extreme contrast: The valley floor with small pockets of color and the mountains now void of color with a dusting of snow.
One part of me is sad to see the color fade from the mountains, as the days grow shorter. At the same time, I’m filled with excitement as winter starts to descend on Vermont. With any luck in just a few short weeks, our state will be transformed into a wonderland of pure white. This is a great time to get out and explore with my camera in hand. Winter is well suited for black and white photography allowing me to capture the dramatic contrast of the tones and texture of the Vermont landscape without the distraction of color. I’m looking forward to what winter will bring this year.
