Waits River, Vermont is one the quaint villages I was seeking when I visited the area earlier this fall. It’s one of those locations that you need to know about in advance, however, as you risk driving right through it without noticing much more than the nice church as you pass by. In order to get a good angle and composition that includes the various buildings, you need to turn down this narrow road to get the view back up towards the church. Advanced research and scouting of the area was definitely key on this trip.
As I’ve mentioned in prior posts about this trip, I was really lucky to get these foggy mornings which when timed right, can provide beautiful light as the fog lifts. When I first passed though the area before sunrise, I couldn’t see the church as I stood right in front of it. But later that morning as the fog started to clear, I was treated to some beautiful, almost ethereal, light. The fog was still obscuring most of the colorful foliage in the background, but for this particular image, I didn’t really care – I had the shot I wanted.
