Fall foliage in North East Kingdom & the weeks outlook — 4 Comments

    • thank you for coming by and leaving a note. I’ll try to get some more pictures up for you from this year.

    • Hi Nikki… A test? to see how close I am? I’ll have you know that I use the very best color measuring devices and I’ve also researched this with some of the most respected minds at MIT… (OK, you got me I ask my wife…)
      And Lisa says… 🙂 Drum roll please… Image one is 40% towards peak Image 2 is a solid 50% maybe a bit higher because many of the trees I’m standing under are 20-30% (but I didn’t show you them). Image 5 again on Hazens Notch (I only played with contrast, whites and highlights in lightroom) and down at the bottom of the hill there is a bunch of green going to yellow but still very heavy on green. But when I add the red in the distance on the far hill I will go with a solid 60% but the image doesn’t show the green hill off to the left out of sight of the camera…

      This is the biggest problem in judging percentages of color. My experience tells me one thing but if you have never seen really good fall foliage then you might say my reports 30% is peak…
      My wife grew up in North Western Vermont and I may say one percentage but I will check with my wife because she taught me what was peak for her and I base my percentages on what I call peak. To me anything from 70% to 100% is damn fine viewing (In my humble opinion) 🙂
      Questions?
