Still Learning To See

The familiar

Camel’s Hump is one of the touchstones of living in Central Vermont, so much so that it was selected to grace the back of Vermont’s 25-cent piece several years ago. You can see the mountain, with its unique shape, from many places within a 100 miles of here and, as a result, I have photographed it often and never tire of seeing it. I made this dramatic photograph of summer clouds several years ago:

Summer-5500

Whenever I visit to my friends at Good Heart Farmstead, high up on the hills above Worcester, I look forward to seeing the mountain tucked in the distance between the hills across the valley. This small view of such a familiar icon is a gem and the fact that I have to look hard to see it adds to my pleasure.
