Vermont for Xmas





Just got back from visiting my mom in Vermont for Christmas. Boy do I miss it there, I wanna move back!!! I also had a little time there to play around with my new digital SLR camera and made this panorama of the field behind the house where I grew up. See if you can find my daughter in the picture. :) (click on the picture or the link for the full sized version, zoom in and scroll like the wind!)

A new digital SLR! Lucky you, and what a lovely view.
I spotted your daughter too :o)

Are the standing stones markers for the boundary?

Hi June, yes, I'm loving the new camera. Of course that's all I need, another hobby to obsess about. :)

The stones mark the property line between neighbors. I used to play in that field and and among those trees as a kid, so it was really cool to have my daughter doing the same thing!

wow thanks for this - I 've been mostly at home (in Oregon) this holiday so this was a great armchair visit...
so....what kind of camera exactly? My son (12 yrs old) has been nudging me to get into the digital age camera-wise. Any recommendations?

Hi Ellen,

I got a Pentax K10D, and I love it. The Nikon D80 is also really great for a digital SLR. the kind of camera you'd want to get depends on whether you're looking for just a point and shoot, or one that gives you lots more control (and lots more to learn), like a DSLR. And how much you want to spend. :) I recommend the Pentax or Nikon for digital SLR, if you want a point and shoot that's not much bigger than a credit card, I really like the little sony DSC-T10 cybershots. The sony's also take full motion video which is really cool too.

What a lovely photo - that was my first thought. Then my second thought was "It's Vermont... and no snow!" Oh, dear.... but I expect the Cmas was merry anyhow!

Where in Vermont, Bryan? I was thinking that it was in Essex. Come on move to Vermont. I'd love to have some more illustrator neighbors!

How fortunate you were to grow up in such a place! There's nothing like wide open spaces -- good for the soul.

Hey Consie, yeah no snow in VT for xmas. The ski resorts weren't too happy about it.

Liza, that was in Chester, Vermont where I grew up. Ooooooo, I want to come back so bad! My mother lives right down the street from the Baba Louis Bakery, mmmmmm.

Salmonowen, I loved growing up there. The woods and hills were my playground. :)
