I have to say that months ago I had found this farm and Jenne Farm in one of my many, many searches for Vermont. And what to photography while we were visiting. It sure helped to have the challenge announced the week before....wink

The day was very, very windy and overcast. Which made the lighting on this near to perfect. I have have since found out that Steven Tyler used to own this property (not sure if he still does).

I had a fantastic week 21_F.gif vawendy flew in to meet us...then 21.gif Bear_Music, 21_F.gif PennyClick and her sister joined us. They all helped me with this. A HUGE thank you to all of them. I can not believe that it's at 7.97...I think I have watched each and every vote come in (well, almost).

Later in the week 21.gif Hot_Pixel and 21_F.gif Denise joined us... 31.gif cryanjoined us when Bear and PennyClick was there.

It was the most freaking fabulous week of vacation...I learned quite a bit from each and everyone. It was funny to have all our computers lined up and talking about this software and that application...just fabulous. I'm really close Bear_Music to purchasing the PS CS/6...really, really close...

I LOVE DPC...Thank you so very much for your votes and for being the very best friends....

Same place 1 week away from 3 years to the day between shots. It was a similar blustery day with very similar light.

By the way, I believe it's actually Joe Perry, guitarist for Aerosmith, that owns or owned the property.

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Oh my... now this is a very nice image and reminiscent of what one would expect to see in the New England States.

A stunning image that makes my entry pale by comparison and I fully expect to see this on the front page at the end of the voting process.

Very nicely done.
