Out and About

  1. As always .... so grateful for these restorative, pleasant, and civilized images as a counterpoint to enjoy in a world that seems increasingly dangerous and scary. Loved the dog-walking confrontation that seemed to end in friendship for the canines!

  2. Also loved that the dog walker had a bag to clean up after his pet.

    Always a breathe of fresh air. Your pictures, not the bag of dog poop.

  3. Yesterday’s weather in Southern New England was just like the photos: bright, clear, and warm. Lots of people out and about. Animals, too. We had a few deer in the morning, a hawk swooping through the meadow for food, and a line of turkeys marching across the property in early evening. Today’s weather promises more of the same.

  5. Agree...beautiful images to enjoy. This week's weather in Vermont is supposed to be outstanding. We are enjoying every moment of this and hoping for a beautiful fall.

    1. We are traveling to Vermont next weekend so I hope the weather stays as beautiful as you described. Are the leaves starting to change and how do I dress this time of year?

    2. As far as I know, JVK, it's supposed to be nice right through the weekend, but I haven't seen out into next week. The leaves are juuuuuuuust starting; some more than others, but for the most part, it's still pretty green. But they change quickly with these warm days and cool nights. I'm in northern Vermont. Layers, bring layers, especially if you'll be out after dark or early morning. Comfortable shoes. Open shoes ok right now, but it gets chilly when the sun goes down. It's been in the 70's with lots of sunshine. Hope you enjoy Vermont.

    3. You might be a bit early, but you should certainly see some color, especially along the higher elevations of the Green Mountains, and, of course, the farther north you go this time of year, the more color you are likely to see. One of my favorite 'jaunts' through the Green Mountains ends coming south through the Notch Road (closed in winter) from Smuggler's Notch into Stowe. In the fall, this area is just lush with color.

      Here's a website that tracks Vermont foliage that might be helpful: http://www.vermont.com/foliage.cfm

      As for dress, expect warm temperatures (mid-60s-low 70s) during the days and cooler temps (down into the upper 40s) during the nights. Early mornings will likely have a chill. With such a temperature range, it helps to think (and dress) in terms of layering. Just be thankful there's no early snow forecast. Nevertheless, don't forget a rain jacket!

    4. Thank you Anon@2:35pm and Aiken - I appreciate the time you each took to respond. We are mixing business with pleasure while staying at the Stowe Mt. Lodge, and I had hoped that we would see some colorful sights. At this time in the mountains of NE Pennsylvania, we are experiencing similar temps although you may get a tad colder at night. Your input helps in knowing what to pack and I agree, layers are essential this time of year. I will be sure to check out the Notch Road as well as the foliage website. Thank you again as I am so looking forward to this fall trip and know we will enjoy Vermont immensely. If you can think of anything else to highlight, let me know.

    5. Stowe is a beautiful town in Vermont, one of the nicest, in fact. It is a ski resort, so it's in the mountains, and you may have more color there. Stowe is about a 20 min drive from my home, and we've been there many times. Wish I could afford to live there...maybe some day. The Notch is a great suggestion, and a nice drive. You may hit traffic, so go with that in mind. There's also an alpine lift that you can go on to see foliage. That's all I can think of for right now. Let us know how you like it.

  8. Enjoying these images, thank you! Are you still shooting these with the Rebel T2i? What lens or lenses to you typically take along on your "Out and About", Muffy?
