Here are a few more old historic Vermont photographs, the first three were taken in the mid 60′s. The first three were taken with B&W Tri-X film with a Cannon camera, then made contrasty by printing on Kolalith Kodak Film.
Here is something really different, I ran across these Vermont old historical photographs in my collection. Most were taken by my father John M. Boisvert back in 1929, he is the one who gave me a Hero Imperial 120 camera when I was eight years old, that’s how my photography career started, the rest is history. Not sure what kind of camera used, most likely a Kodak small film camera.
This year, with all the super cold weather Lake Champlain has frozen over for the first time since 2007. That means lots of blue ice and all the fantastic formations that can appear. Add to that a beautiful warm sunset with puffy clouds and you get a contrast of colors both near and far. All photos, Nikon D-7000 with 18-300mm zoom lens, ISO 400, shutter priority set at 1/400.

This time of year the sun hangs low and there are long deep shadows all day long, but my favorite time of day is late afternoon sunset light. Everything becomes so rich in detail, color and drama.
