Where’s the snow? This photograph above was taken a year ago in February 2015 one of our snowiest winters ever. Snow around ‘The Pink House’ must have been knee deep. Going there at sunrise was great to capture a different perspective on the often photographed building in Newburyport, MA.
This year 2016 El Nino is huge apparently so the weather patterns have changed all around the US. Here’s the ‘Pink House’ this year February 2016. Kind of looks like late spring to me! Oh well. Here’s hoping for some more snow…before it’s too late!
Yup. it happens every now and then. Foliage arrives later than expected. And that’s the 2015 foliage report for you! Vermont as a state somewhat relies on foliage but in any given year it may be lousy or late. As a photographer you can’t let the bother you. Vermont is a great scenic state and one that has lots of photographic subjects to explore and see. So when you’re there and the foiliage is lacking go for other subjects like farms with cows, sunrises and sunsets, little towns, covered bridges and lots more. That’s what we did!
The Dogwoods of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are just great to photograph and arguably one of my favorite subjects while there. Simple yet brilliant against the new green grass and leaves of spring. Hard to beat! Photographers will use every lens in their bag from wide angles to macros to long telephotos.
The many streams, cabins, scenics, wildlife, sunrises and sunset keep a photographer very busy! But I like it! Worth the trip for someone wanting to see one of our country’s most visited National Parks!
Yup, off to the Smoky Mountains tomorrow. This New England boy ventures outside his home area to go with his business partner as co-owners of New England Photo Workshops (www.nephotoworkshops.com) explore the Smoky Mountains! This image from last year was one of my favorites. Looking forward to making some great images and working closely with the workshop folks.
