One Vermont Afternoon

 

I wanted to take a photograph that embodies the spirit of northern Vermont’s farmland.  As I was in the thick of Vermont’s farm country, many silos and hay barns were scattered about the landscape.  One barn and silo stood out to me in particular as I rounded the top of a hill.  I walked around for a while trying to compose a shot.  Lots of spiked seed pods got stuck in my clothes as walked through the fields, but it was all part of the experience.  I chose to take the shot with the beautifully colored green and brown grass in the foreground and the barn and silo further away.  I love how the broken cloud cover illuminates certain areas in the gentle rolling hills full of silos.  The scene gave me a nice relaxed feeling, so I named the shot, plain and simply, “One Vermont Afternoon.”
