I recently Traveled to Ludlow Vermont for my first year anniversary with my wife. The start of fall is a really beautiful time to visit southern Vermont - the air is still warm, the colors are starting to show on the leaves and the crowds have not yet arrived. I was somewhat disappointed in the lack of wildlife I observed (and those Moose Crossing signs seem to be just for show) but the vistas and waterfalls did not leave me wanting.
Here are a few shots for you to enjoy as I prepare to being photographing migratory birds for the fall season (a little late perhaps, but I mostly enjoy the raptors which are just starting to filter in now).
If you're interested in visiting Vermont - take a look at this book which offers some nice off-the-beaten-path places
