13th Annual Fall Foliage Photo Contest
Readers always rise to the occasion in our annual Fall Foliage Photo Contest.
In this, the 13th year, readers/photographers have again delivered breathtaking images of autumn’s annual color extravaganza.
Leaves turn colors in other places, but Vermont’s unique mix — trees that erupt in red, yellow and orange, mountains that run down to lakes, sweeping and dramatic landscapes, waterfalls and rivers whose sparkle accents the natural colors — make every fall a season to savor.
More than 100 people entered the contest, sending us 200-plus images, a significant increase from last year. Our photographer, Gordon Miller, helped select the top 34, and the final selections were made in a ballot vote by our staff.
Everyone has their favorite spots to visit in the fall. Ours include the ridge that runs along the top of Mount Mansfield, Lake Elmore, the Pinnacle in Stowe, Moss Glen Falls, the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail and its views of the river, and Mansfield from the Cambridge side. And one of the excellent things about the fall foliage contest is that, every year, it gives foliage viewers a new set of remarkable landscapes to add to their personal lists.
Congratulations to the winners!
