Fog Rising

Today’s image is another one from my recent visit to Vermont.  The village of East Corinth was high on my list of locations to shoot after seeing some images of the town online, and more importantly, after learning that it was the setting for the movie Beetlejuice.  It’s one of Tim Burton’s best movies, and one of my personal favorites, and I of course had to watch it again after photographing the area.

I had arrived here before sunrise, hoping for some nice light on the church and the surrounding landscape.  I was instead greeted by a blanket of fog that obscured anything further than two feet in front of me.  So after waiting for some time with no relief from the fog, I decided to get back in my car and explore the area in hopes of returning later to see the fog rising before the sun got too high.  About an hour later I came back to the same spot, and found gorgeous light hitting the church and colorful trees behind it as the fog began to lift.  It was a truly amazing scene, and I was fortunate to have timed my return just right.  Have I mentioned that I love Vermont in the fall?
