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…

    • 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.
