New fall foliage contest rules for 2013!

During the past year, I’ve found that many people aren’t returning my emails telling them they won a free print. I’ve decided to change up how I run this giveaway.

Comments are king!
Starting this month I’m going to chose winners based only on the comments on my blog for the previous month.

So if you are a comment type person, then you are likely to be taking some prints home. (yes prints, if you are the only one to comment…)
Now! you can’t come in and say Comment and run away… 🙂 It’s not that easy… you will have to actually say something that doesn’t sound canned or spammy. But I rarely get those anymore so most everyone is pretty safe.

So leave something that is a value add to my comments and you will be entered. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you.. Today I contacted Sandyshores50 via twitter to tell her she won for December. So leave me a bread trail! Come on folks throw me a bone here! 🙂

And if you hurry, you can clean up for January, because the person who is selected as the first (comment fiend) for January will also get one other gift from Jeff Foliage’s gift bag. I’m looking at a chair next to me that has a steadily growing pile of New England type items that I come across in my travels.

Some things are donated and some are just photography type items (t-shirts and such) some are bumper stickers that I thought were funny… But! what ever it is, I will choose a winner based on their comment content, number of comments and how I feel that day… BUT! you have to comment to win

Hey there are only two comments in January so I would say your chances of winning are really good!...

OH! you haven’t commented yet? well… maybe your chances aren’t so good after all… 🙁

2013 fall foliage prints — 10 Comments

  1. Hey there Jeff, first of all, I can’t believe that anybody who would be so lucky to win one of your prints wouldn’t claim it. Secondly, we should try to correspond in the fall so that we can both show up at Crystal Lake in Eaton on the same day and see what the landscape has in store.

    • It’s not so much that they didn’t want the prints as they don’t respond to my email contacting them. I have to assume I went to spam or they registered with a fake email.. Which seems to defeat the purpose. I have only had one person turn down my print saying they were also a photographer and perhaps someone else would appreciate it more, so I went and gave that months print to someone else.
      In December I emailed 4 people and I just gave up… (too busy with family and the holidays plus Lisa was in the hospital) And when the first person went 8 days without answering, I decided the new method.
      We’ll see how it works.

  2. Hi Jeff,
    My twitter is sandyshores50, I sent you a tweet just now. Thanks so much. I really enjoy seeing the New England foliage pics and reading the commentary. We don’t have anything like that where I live in FL.

  3. Hi Jeff,

    I have been reading your blog since last Aug-September, which is when my wife and I were deciding what sort of adventure we could come up with for the fall. We live in Burbank, CA and had considered whale watching or a cruise or a road trip up the west coast and then realized that we both had a long-standing desire to see the turning of the colors in New England. I came across your blog and you mentioned that you were planning to take your vacation around Oct.3 thru Oct. 10 ish, which was your best estimate of the peak colors for last year’s display. So I booked flights in and out of Boston on those dates, trusting your intuition. It was a truly wonderful trip through NH, Maine and VT. We drove about 1000 miles through vividly colored countryside and, as you know, caught it right on the sweet spot. I had asked you for suggestions regarding zip-lining (which we had a ball doing!) and trams, etc., which you very generously offered. I want to thank you again for making what seemed like a personal invitation to tour the area that you are so proud of. Every time we saw a photographer toting a tripod to the perfect vantage point for a shot we wondered if it might be you. Quite possibly it was.

    Thanks again,

    Jim Farrell Burbank, CA

    • Sometimes it was me and sometimes it wasn’t… 🙂 I’m glad you came in for a visit and had a great time… I’m very unhappy if someone comes all the way here and then doesn’t have a good time… Sometimes it’s the weather… not much I can do there and sometimes the colors slow down or shift and I work extra hard to get the best information out there.
      Either way I try to make everyone’s visit something special…

  4. I was so disappointed this year when it rained & ruined what promised to be an excellent foliage season. I was impressed that right up until the end, you managed to find excellent foliage for your photos.

    • Well Rowena, I was very lucky early on to find my best color on the 1st and 2nd of Oct and then like everyone else I hit the rain also. Of course I still go out and look for color… Hey if you find some rain covered blacktop you will reflect the color from the trees and if you find a good pattern of puddles… More color that way… And if you are lucky you get it as the clouds are breaking and you might get a rainbow! Now there is a good reason to be out on a rainy day.
      Thanks and I still have more images that I haven’t put up yet…

  5. Hello and good day from Iowa!! I have been following your blog and facebook page since march of 2012 when me and my mother decided to fulfill her foliage bucket list trip!! Out of all the resources I found I used your blog the most and loved it!! We stayed in Bar Harbor, Granville, and Squam Lake and absolutely loved it!! I was my mothers tour guide and with your help I think I did a pretty good job!!! I would love to go every year if we could afford the trip from Iowa but so much to see and do! I was also very excited one of the pictures I posted on facebook was in contest wish I would have posted my better ones but it was cool to be picked thank you!! Well I’m hopeful to be considered in contest and hope all is well in New England take care and keep posting beautiful pics of one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been!! Melissa Stevens-Shudak

    • Hi Melissa, I’m glad I was able to help inspire you in your travels. It’s always hard to play travel guide since you don’t always know what is going to happen around the next turn…
      Well visit the page or my Facebook page from time to time and see what we’re finding this year.

I'd love to hear what you think!
