An infrared image of Isham Farm's sugaring operation. Sap is fed down gravity lines with pumps from a large maple tree hardwood forest uphill. The sap is collected in the sugaring hut, boiled, and then turned into Pure Vermont Maple Syrup. The trees at Isham Farm typically have a 40 gallon sap to 1 gallon syrup ratio. Maple trees produce the most of their watery sap when temperatures vastly fluctuate between below freezing nights and warmer days.
Vermont Red Barn Sunset
Just your usual old red barn with the Green Mountains in the background. The kind of thing you'd see anywhere in Vermont. Nothing special here. Nope, barns are totally boring. Sunset and a barn even more boring. I can't believe I took this boring barn picture. What was I thinking?
End of day grazing comes with some nice views.
American Vermont Barn
Sunset on the American red barn. Cows grazing and curious as to what this thing pointing a camera at them is. Farm paparazzi maybe?
The classic Vermont Barn on the hill
I have no idea whether this barn has a name, but it sits in Stowe with the Green Mountains behind it. This shot was created just before twilight with sunset clouds shielding the bright sun as it set behind us.
Rough Legged Hawk over an abandoned barn
At the dead end of Gage Road in Addison Vermont is a decrepit red barn that now provides shelter to wild mammals who keep the predatory food chain fat in the winter. Gage Road is one of the best places to find predatory birds in Vermont.
