We all like visiting well known places like the Eiffel Tower and, of course, taking a photo to show family and friends. A problem arises as to how do you make your Eiffel picture standout from thousands of others taken from pretty much the same vantage point. My niece and her family visited us this week and they luckily arrived just as foliage was peaking. Friday I took them on a foliage and covered bridge drive which included the Jenne Farm. The Jenne Farm has the reputation of one of the most photographed farms in New England, if not the world. And Fall is usually the most popular time to visit. The Jenne family readily shares their piece of Vermont but do have a donation box nailed to a big Maple tree alongside the road and have Vermont maple syrup for sale. As I soaked in the post card perfect setting, I wondered what could I do to make my photo a little different. My niece's 4 year old daughter provided the answer. I asked her to go part way down the road to the farm buildings and then run back up the road towards me as I fired off multiple shots. This was my favorite. Olympus OMD E-M5 with m.zuiko [email protected] 40mm, ISO 200, f5, 1/125s. And yes I left a donation.

What a beautiful and peaceful setting. And what a darling little girl. She is so full of life (it is wonder after making her run the hill several times). You can see her entire body is working hard to make the picture just right for Great Uncle Dave. This picture could turn out in an enlarged form hanging on her own grandchild's bedroom some day. A "life long pleasure" picture. A perfect fall Vermont countryside to remember long after the leaves fall from the trees.
