Connecticut Splendor - Kent, Connecticut

Lake Waramaug State Park, Kent, Connecticut

As you may have noticed, I spent the last two foliage seasons away from my home state of Connecticut. Last year, it was taking a tour of Colorado to see the colors of the aspens against the magnificent mountains. This year, I co-hosted a Maine Photo Tour with my good buddy Jeff Clow. When I got home, I was too busy to get a chance to shoot the Connecticut foliage. So this photo is from a few years ago, and is of my go-to location for foliage photography. Located about an hour from my house near Lake Waramaug State Park, this particular location is privately owned and difficult to shoot. The property is large (some might consider it a mansion) and I wish that I had the run of the place to photograph it. There is no shoulder on the road, so it is hard to pull over to shoot it. I sometimes park on the home's driveway (about a half-mile long), hop out and get in some shots. I am always ready to hop back in the car and take off if I see anyone coming. Perhaps one day, I will get the courage to drive the very long driveway, knock on the door, and ask permission.
