For some reason, Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom consistenly gets some of the best foliage color. This video contains scenes from popular photo spots such as Lake Willoughby, Island Pond, Barton, East Charleston and Barton. A Merlin Steadicam was used for almost every scene. The wistfull piano music is an original work which fits the mood of reflection and melancholy. Perhaps that is why people like the colors so much!
Shot during September and October in more than a dozen locations throughout Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. The video opens with a “walking through the leaves” section shot high up on the CC road at the southern end of Lake Willoughby. The road was built as a make work project during the Depression With all the economic mayhem going on, one can’t help getting a sense of deja vu! The road offers one stunning view of the lake. You can see at least 30 miles and if it is clear, Mount Orford in Quebec.
