This Week's Travels: NY, Vt, NH, MA...

I had a busy week this past week and was lucky with beautiful weather. On Tuesday we did the 3rd day's shoot for the Story Book Project. The videographer and I shot dressage figures all day from the end of a very high and long boom giving me a whole new vantage point and perspective.
Later that day I headed north to Addison Vermont, home of Asspirin Acres, breeders of miniature donkeys. I don't think there is anything quite as cute as a miniature donkey!
I was treated to a gorgeous sunset over the Lake Champlain Valley with the Adironacks in the distance. The following day I traveled through the Green Mountains of Vermont to New Hampshire and Massachusetts to visit family. It is a beautiful time of year to explore this part of the country!

Walton Fair Draft Horse Show

The Walton Fair in Delaware County, New York is known for being one of the best agricultural fairs in the state. I always make sure to go down and watch the breeding classes and the big hitches. This year the Draft Horse Show had a very good turnout with 5 6 horse teams! See all the photos at this link.

Clark Farms Foals

I spent some time last week at Clark Farms in south central Pennsylvania. This farm raises some of the nicest foundation bred Quarter Horses I have ever seen. It was a pleasure to be able to see and photograph this year's foal crop. A truly beautiful batch of little ones!

To see more of the photos I took during my recent visit please go to this link. There are also more photos taken at this location during last fall's photography workshop here. Enjoy!
