Millstone Trails in Graniteville, Vermont, is a remarkable group of old granite quarries—from swimming pool size to a lake that is hundreds of feet deep—and literal mountains of “grout” (small to huge blocks of unusable granite) and acres of beautiful mixed hardwoods with fascinating long views of Central Vermont. Many of the quarries are filled with water, including Little John quarry which is also subject to amazing wind patterns.
The hour I spent there this week photographing water reflection patterns took my breath away. Because the camera stops a dynamic scene, I am never certain how the photos will come out but in this case I was pretty sure many would end up as amazing abstracts. Was I right?
Add in reflections of clouds, branches, foliage and I had to be very careful to not just fall in the water dizzy with pleasure.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I am. More tomorrow!
