New England Fall Foliage » Foliage Articles » August comment to win contest

This is to announce my August comment to win contest.

Winner Sharon Ikenberry

Winner for July was Sharon Ikenberry. She chose one of my mugs and I have two left. One of them is one I created using a lighthouse sunset image from Scituate which can be seen on Vistaphotography here, the other is a nice leaf pattern. Check them out below…

Why am I doing this give away?

I am very appreciative of everyone who comes to my website and this is one way for me to say thank you. (Clicking on the ADs also helps to pay for my gas and coffee on the road) 🙂

I have a couple different hats and foliage themed greeting card sets. Check picture below.  If you ask nicely I’ll even through some pressed maple leaves from my past foliage trips through New England. NO! I don’t remember what tree I got them from! 🙂 (Two such leaves are in this picture)

Foliage Contest Rules!

Post a comment on this article. You should see a link at the bottom of this page. If you don’t then please contact me.

Then over the next week I will look over the comments and on the following Wednesday, I will randomly select one of the names and contact them.

You need to use an email that you actively check! Please check at least the following Wednesday after this article as that is one place where I will announce the winner’s name.

You comments can be anything from “I’m in it to win it”, to “Hi Jeff”, “I love fall” or what ever you want to say or ask. No bonus points for jokes but they are appreciated! 🙂

Please post only one comment on this article so I don’t have to think, too hard, as to whether I’ve seen that email address more than once. 🙂

You CAN enter more than one monthly contest and I will give you a choice from different gift items. My international winners will have to bear with me as it may take many weeks for a slow boat to get the items there… 🙂 The slow boat is currently on the way back from China….

Questions? leave a comment, but be warned that will enter you in the contest!

Photography Prints Special deal! I created this image in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and I thought I would show it off here.

As a special dial I’m offering this digital painting with a 15% off code (YBMBHG) (Old code (hit my fine art newsletter for a new code)…

Actually it’s good for 15% off any artwork that I have on FAA for the next 11 days until the end of August.

The view of the barn can be seen from the road. I’m not sure of the road but it may have been route 11 on the east side of lake Winnipesaukee. I hope you enjoy this view.


Also the photographic world lost a wonderful photographer a while back and I wanted to post his pamphlets that his Daughter is continuing to publish it. You can purchase one of his Vermont scenic locations books for very little (seen below)

August comment to win contest — 27 Comments

  1. Booked the last two days in September in Ludlow, VT. Any thoughts on how the colors will be? Thanks

    • Everybody is going to Ludlow.. You will be needing to travel north from Ludlow to find any real good color. There will be some, especially in the swampy areas and up in elevation. So try Okemo to see what color they have higher up…

  2. Your fall photography is such an inspiration…I study your photos and prints on your blogs, Vistaphotography, and Fine Arts for composition and location ideas. Now I just need to make the trip from California to New England again soon so I can practice what I’ve learned! Thank you again.

  3. October can’t come soon enough! Looking forward to our trip from Austin to visit MN and NH for the first time and a return to VT for the 2nd time. It’s fast becoming our annual early anniversary trip! In the meantime, our fix of course is viewing! Appreciate all the insight and beautiful images you bring us. We added Polly’s Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill, NH simply based upon your review for a breakfast stop. Thanks again!

  4. Hi Jeff – I’ve been following your blog. Your tips have been very helpful as I am planning a trip to New England Oct. 4-9. This will be my first trip there so I’m trying to learn as much as I can. I would love to learn more about Salem, places to interest, good restaurants etc, Anything you care to share would be helpful. Thanks, Carolyn

  5. Hi Jeff! I check your site often when we are planning our annual trip to the Berkshires! Even though we know the area by heart (hubby was raised in Pittsfield), there’s always something new to discover!

  6. A sure sign that fall is coming is that you start posting more often. Keep up the great work!

    • Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, 🙂

  7. That “Barn full of fall color” is gorgeous, Jeff. If I’m ever going through the Lakes District I’ll have to see if I can find it.

  8. Please enter me in your contest. I’m going to be in New England for a week in early October (Oct 5-12) and enjoy picking up information from your blog/website. I’m going from Boston to Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and then back to Boston so hopefully I’ll catch a beautiful color show somewhere along the way.

  9. Hi Jeff, I love that beautiful painting of the barn full of fall colors! Fall is my favorite season and we are planning a trip to New England this fall (my first New England visit). Thank you for your web page and articles on what to expect. We can’t wait for our visit to New England!

  10. I have been stalking you for years, since you first blogged for Yankee Magazine. I’m a born and bred flatlander from Missouri but New England has had my heart since 1990. I try and come back every year because if I don’t my soul feels the emptiness. Autumn is my favorite season and your pictures and words are what I look for when I need a shot of Autumn and New England.

    It looks like I won’t make it this year because of health issues so keep pressing that shutter release and keeping us up to date on the foliage reports.

    By the way, this isn’t a joke but something that happened to me the first time I came to New England. We were lost in Vermont and trying to get to HWY 7. We came upon a tiny town so decided to stop at the post office to ask for directions, This post office was the quintessential example of a rural post office in New England. One room with maybe fifty boxes and the post master stationed in a small room just past them. She was sitting at her desk and looked up when I walked in. I made the mistake of saying, ” I’m from Missouri and lost.” Before I could finish my sentence she looked at me, her expression never changing, lifted her right arm, pointed southwest and said,” Missouri’s that way.” Welcome to the famous Yankee sensibility. Gotta love it.

    Thanks for all your hard work.


  11. Oh, wow! From what I can see of your notecards they are beautiful. I still enjoying receiving and sending a handwritten note. It is easy to see why fall is favorite season for so many – me included. Life long dream coming true for my husband and I as we will be visiting New England in October. So thankful a friend told us of your website. The anticipation grows with each photo and blog you post.

  12. Hi Jeff. I’m the reader to whom you sent explicit instructions on how to get to the covered bridges. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I CANT WAIT!! October fourth we fly out of Atlanta. Thanks for all you do.

  13. Good morning Jeff, We are getting excited about our trip to NY/VT/NH in Sept. My husband was a foster child living in several areas of NH. We have rented a cottage on Lake Sunapee in mid Sept for three days and my husband’s brother will join us as will our son and daughter. The lake has wonderful memories for my husband, getting to ride on the mail boat, etc.(until he dropped some mail in the lake!) The Autumn weather sounds favorable so far so we look forward to a great vacation. I love both mugs and the ball caps. The photo of the barn full of color is really lovely. thanks for your blog. teresa young

  14. Jeff, we are from Georgia and plan to visit New England in early October. I am loving your foliage reports, photography and other articles!

  15. I’ve really enjoyed your photos and your blog. We’re looking forward to our first adventure in New England this fall.

  16. Hi Jeff, would love to win a cap…….we will be visiting New England this fall….our fourteenth year. We love it!!

  17. Jeff, I look forward to seeing your pictures because I’m obsessed with the autumn season–it’s my favorite time of the year! My husband & I got married on September 24th, four years ago and our anniversary kicks off the fall season. Thank you for taking the time to go out & snap mementos of New England’s best autumn images. It’s a dream of mine & my husband’s to one day, go on an autumn in New England tour so believe me when I say that your images are something I look forward to everyday 🙂
