In early October had an opportunity to spend a few days in Vermont. It has been several years since my last trip to the Green Mountain State and I was looking forward to photographing the maples in color.
I spent some time with Google Maps looking at potential areas. One of them I had picked out was a small lake.
I had decided to make it might first morning location as it was close to the road and would not require a long hike like some of the other spots would.
I awoke to clear starry skies.
As I drove down the mountain I entered thick fog.
Then as I approached the area of the lake I got right to the edge of the fog.
I had lucked out. Too much higher on the mountain and it would be boring clear. Too much lower and it was pea soup thick.
I watched the fog move among the colorful maples.
The sun rose and the light slowly lit the mountain and the trees.
I had a few decent images and a good start to my visit. I headed down the mountain and thoughts of pancakes and maple syrup.
