Autumn In Vermont {part 3}

The next morning we woke up and headed to a place I've wanted to photograph forever. It's been in magazines, online, and in books for years as an icon to photograph. (here's a bit of the history) Not just in the fall - but year round! It was a photography dream come true for me.

I wasn't exactly sure if this little side trip would fit (since Anna and Abigail were with us) but it was really close to Woodstock - perfect!

Just the drive to Sleepy Hallow Farm was magical enough for my camera to be happy for years!

Yes, happy taking pictures on this road all fall.

I adore the fall in New England

And then we took a right - and there it was! I couldn't believe it - I'd seen it countless times in magazines for years - I was driving right up to it! Amazing!

What I had never seen was the trees that lined the street. Who knew they were just as spectacular as the farm that everyone comes to photograph.

I got out of my car - practically still moving - and set myself up - smiling ear to ear I took photograph after photograph.

I couldn't believe how it was the most perfect morning. The smoke coming from the chimney, the mist on the mountains behind...

... the fall leaves clining to the last of the season in just the right place to frame my photos.

I tried so many different settings and as beautiful as these are - they just don't capture the beauty that I saw with my eyes. But I sure tried!

One of my favorites.

I stayed quite a while as photographers left one by one - they were lined up this street - this breathtaking street -

Everything I always studied in the magazine pictures was right in front of me - that winding road that leads to the farm - the crunch of leaves that had just fallen - all right there!

I clicked as if I'd never be back. I'm only 2 hours away but it just felt so magical to me.

And then we headed back down the road - and to breakfast. Still in awe and wanting to buy a home tucked away in Vermont - I had stars in my eyes.

One last Vermont post coming tomorrow --
