The weather forecast looked more promising in Vermont than at home up north , upon reading on the state's tourist info internet site that fall colors there were at their peak well those were incentive enough to put Vermont at the very top of our hiking list for the upcoming Thanksgiving long weekend so we made it there by car , settled down in one of small Swanton's motels on the Lake Champlain shore , a few kms inland in fact anyway from there we drove each day to a different part of the region. This photo was taken on our last day as we neared Jay Peak , a ski resort a few kms from the Canadian border .
Iso 80 , f/4.5 , 1/160 , tweaked the highlights , added some contrast and saturation a bit , sharpened and framed,
Thank you for reviewing this photo,

Hi Carol,

Wow, what a great autumnal shot with lovely horses in the FG! I like the great mood into the capture, shown with perfect sharpness and from a well chosen POV. The great harmony of colors is very well shown, and you have documented the autumn scenario very well.

A wonderful composition!

best regards,

Ahh, glad to see a shot from your weekend in Vermont Carol! Beautiful!! Such a peaceful foreground with the three horses eating in front of the trees. And the beautiful pallette of colors behind on the hillside .. wow! Must have been a stunning thing to see. I like the panoramic crop of this, and the simple white frame is perfect.
Great job my friend. How many pics did you shoot on the weekend?
Ciao for now

Hi Carol,
Vermont is a few weeks ahead of Virginia with regard to fall colors. A fabulous autumn image this is. The three horses and their placement in the frame is ideal. Your cam settings appear optimum as it resulted in good depth, colors, and sharpness. Wishing you well.

Hi Carol
What an impressive scene this is. The colours are so pretty, but it is the composition that grabs my attentionm with the 3 hoses (good to have an odd number) placed so strategically in the image.
How wonderful to see trees like this. And your weekend away must have been great

The only " but " I have

Do like the composition meaning
horses, trees and then the colours of the forest behind it.

Are they wild horses ? ( like we have in France ? )

Hallo Carol,

Splendid landscape! Beautiful autumn colors. Unfortunately it's so cold here incite lies to snow.

Hi, Carol -
I missed this one - superb autumn scene, very nicely composed. I really like the horizontal layers of the grassy ground, the foremost trees and those on the distant hillside. Warm fall colors. Very peaceful mood. Well done.

Bardzo fajna kolorystyka...

Bonjour Carol.
Je suis allé très loin dans tes anciennes photos et je suis tombées sur cette belle composition d'automne..
Excellent point de vue et superbes harmonie de couleurs d'automne.
Superbe profondeur de champs et les chevaux apportent un + à ta présentation.
Elle est MAGNIFIQUE cette photo...
de toute beauté et beau travail...
