Welcome. This site is developed from my hobby photographing the Vermont landscape. For thirty plus years I have been photographing Vermont both as a visitor and part-time resident. My hobby started with film cameras, followed by a switch to all digital in 2001. You can access my photos by selecting any of the gallery links above.  Most of my photos have been taken using a long list of Nikon DSLR & Fujifilm X cameras and lens.  Each gallery and image provides an opportunity for user feedback plus the ability to contact me directly. Check back regularly via my blog which chronicles my photographic Vermont excursions and thoughts in a timely fashion. If you would like to see more of my photography, you can visit www.imagesbykevinarmstrong.com a site for my general landscape photography.

Now that 2016 is in the books and we crack the seal on a fresh new year, it is only natural to look back and make some assessments.  It is with this reflection in mind that I set out to review the thousands of images taken in 2016 and select my 16 favorites.  The criteria for selection is not necessarily an image’s technical accuracy or its popularity with viewers of this site.  It just has to be one of my personal favorites.  Since a photograph records but a moment in time, you could say that these are my 16 favorites moments in Vermont for 2016. 

These photos, whether they be color, black & white or infrared represent all four seasons spanning the four corners of the State.  Below is my selections, I hope you enjoy them.

This year’s autumn photo trip was four days in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.   A name affectionately coined by a Vermont State senator back in the 1940’s to describe the upper northeast corner of the state.  I also included visits to Groton Stater Forest and the surrounding towns of Peacham and Marshfield.  These places while not technically in the Northeast Kingdom, are just a short drive and often offer plenty of photographic opportunities and the annual foliage progression seems to be in lock step with the Kingdom.  All of these areas seem to hit peak foliage glory  during the first few days of October every year.  My trip was from October 3rd to October 7th.

The foliage in central and northern Vermont was excellent this year.  Probably the best in years.  The reds were vibrant and the weather was cooperative, making for excellent photography conditions.  All that was left was for me to use this pick of good fortune to my advantage.  Just because the foliage and weather conditions were optimal does not mean that I am up to the challenge.  Mother Nature did her part but do have the experience and effort to benefit from it?  The answer is I do not know, I hope so because next year the conditions may not be as conducive.

The equipment used for this trip was my relatively new Fujifilm X-T2 and the X-T1.  The lens of choice for most of the photos was the 16 -55 f2.8.  Although I do like to use the 10 – 24 mm f4 and the 50 -140 mm f2.8.  I use these three the most when traveling because they offer an nice focal range of 10 – 140 mm (15 – 210 mm APS adjusted).  I occasionally will also use the 35 mm f2 for its image quality and small size.  When placed on the X-T2 or X-T1 it gives the camera a rangefinder like quality.
