Iconic Vermont Photographs by Edward M. Fielding For Sale

Blizzard at the red dairy barn.

Iconic Vermont Photographs

Decorating with local Vermont icons seems to be in mind for these recent collector from Randolph, Vermont.  The buyer selected a nice choice of Vermont seasonal landscape photographs from my collection.  I really enjoy seeing this collector curated selection from my portfolio of 100s of Vermont, New Hampshire and New England fine art photographs.  What a great eye this buyer has!

This collection of Vermont photographs reminds me of years it took to create this collection of iconic Vermont images and the individual effort to create each one.  Forget about pouring over maps and driving around to find these spot, I’m talking about putting my body and camera equipment at risk to get the shots.

I remember my feet slowly slipping across the wet, slimy rocks at this covered bridge and waterfall in Thetford, Vermont as I was lining up the shot.  I keep thinking, unless my boots grip something soon, I’m going over the falls.

This shot is just over the Connecticut River from Vermont in Etna, New Hampshire.  A big old red classic dairy farm with Dutch style room on a farm just outside of Hanover, NH and Lyme, NH.  A stones throw from Norwich, VT.  Well sane people were at home by the wood stove watching the weather reports, this guy was hiking over, dodging snow plows and then wading knee deep into the snow to compose the sticking image of a classic red New England barn against the snow covered landscape complete with billowing snow.  Thank goodness for my weatherized Canon 6D and a handy wipe to clean the lens.

The iconic old red mill in Jericho, Vermont is a bit of a trek to find but the danger involved in getting this shot involves a busy thoroughfare more than anything else.

This shot of a red barn in the late afternoon with the reflection off the Connecticut River involved a bit of maneuvering.  First spotted I had to find a place to park the car on busy Route 5 which follows along on the Vermont side of the Connecticut River.

The I had to hope the guardrail and disappear into the under brush while my wife worried about me back at the car.  To get into position for the reflection to look right I braved the tick infested vines, mud and the remnants of an old barbed wire fence.

Coming back up the bank I had to negotiate the slippy mud, thick underbrush and untangle the barbed wire from my leg before it dug in deep enough to require a tenus shot.

I’ve tried to return to this spot other years but never seem to have found the same area.  Might have been a lower water level that allowed me to get this great Vermont scene.  Just goes to show you,  take the shots when you see them.  You might not be back to the area or even be able to capture the same scene again.

New artwork for sale! The Lone Cypress water color by Edward M. Fielding.

Standing on a granite hillside off California’s scenic 17-mile drive in Pebble Beach, the Lone Cypress is a western icon, and has been called one of the most photographed trees in North America. The tree is located between Cypress Point Golf Course and the Pebble Beach Golf Links, two of world’s best-known golf courses. Possibly as old as 250 years, the cypress has been scarred by fire and has been held in place with cables for 65 years.

The Monterey Cypress grows naturally only in Pebble Beach and Point Lobos.

Cupressus macrocarpa, (now classed as Hesperocyparis macrocarpa),commonly known as Monterey cypress, is a species of cypress native to the Central Coast of California. The native range of the species was confined to two small relict populations, at Cypress Point in Pebble Beach and at Point Lobos near Carmel, California.

The two native cypress forest stands are protected, within Point Lobos State Reserve and Del Monte Forest. The natural habitat is noted for its cool, moist summers, almost constantly bathed by sea fog.[4][5]

This species has been widely planted outside its native range, particularly along the coasts of California and Oregon. Its European distribution includes Great Britain (including the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands), France, Ireland, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Sicily.[11] In New Zealand, plantings have naturalized, finding conditions there more favorable than in its native range. It has also been grown experimentally as a timber crop in Kenya

  3. Production started in 1938 and Adolf Hitler used the name “KdF-Wagen” (“Kraft durch Freude” meaning “Strength through Joy”) for the automobile developed by Ferdinand Porsche, but the public at-large settles on a name by calling it the “Volkswagen” (people’s car)

The Volkswagen Type 2, known officially (depending on body type) as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus, or, informally, as the Bus (US) or Camper (UK), is a panel van introduced in 1950 by the Germanautomaker Volkswagen as its second car model. Following – and initially deriving from Volkswagen’s first model, the Type 1 (Beetle) – it was given the factory designation Type 2.[10]

As one of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans, the Type 2 gave rise to forward control competitors in the United States in the 1960s, including the Ford Econoline, the Dodge A100, and theChevrolet Corvair 95 Corvan, the latter adopting the Type 2’s rear-engine configuration. European competition included the 1960s FF layout Renault Estafette and the FR layout Ford Transit.

Like the Beetle, the van has received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the “microbus”, “minibus”,[11] and, because of its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s, “Hippie van”.

Brazil contained the last factory in the world that produced the T2. Production in Brazil ceased on December 31, 2013, due to the introduction of more stringent safety regulations in the country.[9] This marks the end of an era with the rear-engine Volkswagens manufactured (after the 2002 termination of its T3 successor in South Africa), which first originated in 1935 with their Type 1 prototypes.
