This fold shows fall colors of Vermonte in 2011 and 2012 trips.
I had 3 days in central (Stowe) and southern (Manchester) Vermonte in 2011 for fall colors during Columbus Day weekend.
I had two projects to experiment in this trip:
- Fall colors with HDR photography. Hypothesis is that all colors expression is dependent on the light. HDR photography can boost the light expression , especially in the dark area. Theoretically, HDR photography will improve the color expression.
- Fall colors with tele-zoom (400 mm). In general, the tele-zooms are not the best for the colors and wide angles have advantages due to general background noise in tele-zooms caused by the distance to object.
The weather was excellent in 2011 and however, the color changes at the time were just moderate, especially in south part of Vermonte. I made second trip in 2012 and went further north to southern Quebec and north/central Vermonte (Newport and Stowe) at the same time as 2011. Unfortunately, it was rainy in 2012 trip during all my staying in Vermonte.
