Spring is here and all the farmers are out working their fields, tractors and farmers and the art of crop management. They are out early and late which makes for great lighting for photographs. All photos, Nikon F-100 and 70-200mm and 24-120mm zoom lenses.

Covered bridge’s define the Vermont landscape, iconic structures that last generations and used by everyone. I find them to be architectural masterpiece’s, and really fun to photograph, especially in the spring when the water runs strong and the leaves haven’t come out yet. All photos, Nikon camera and lenses.

It’s been a long cold winter, but now we are in the middle of spring maple sugaring season and farmers are boiling day and night. There are so many great photo ops in the sugarbush, from gathering the sap to boiling it all down to syrup it’s a really sweet job. All photos Nikon D-300 with 18-300mm zoom lens, fill flash and tripod.

Vermont is maple sugaring, maple sugaring is Vermont. It’s been here just about forever and is going stronger than ever. Every sugar house is different than the next one, as well as the sugar makers.

What’s really nice about Vermont is all the open space, nice clean space that can be any color, depending on when the photos taken. In these predawn photos I like deep purple and long time exposures. Then throw in some added light just for fun. All photos, Nikon D-610 with 28-300mm zoom lens, ISO 100, 30 seconds at F/22 through F/11, all on tripod.

Sometimes when your out in a beautiful place taking pictures something comes along and makes it even better, as in these icy Lake Champlain photographs with biker with spike tires having fun on the open lake.
