Our Photos in the Times Argus – Supporting the VNRC

Last week, in Vermont’s Times Argus newspaper, a photo of ours opened a story, authored by correspondent Jake Brown, about ATV use on Vermont’s public lands. See our photo and the story HERE.

Since December 2008, we have been working with Vermont’s Natural Resources Council (VNRC) by providing them with images they can use for their ongoing website, fundraising, media and membership communications. We’ve also donated some of our fine-art photography to an auction the VRNC organizes in conjunction with the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, hosted by the VRNC in Burlington every fall.

The VNRC is Vermont’s leading statewide organization dedicated to protecting our natural resources and our environment through research, education and advocacy. We feel lucky to have organizations like the VNRC that are working hard to protect the great things we love about life in Vermont. Please check out their website, and if you support their work, consider supporting them with a donation of money, your time or membership.

Winter…and our new Cards…are here!

After years of encouragement from our friends and customers to make our images available as cards, we have launched a new series of photo cards…and they are hot off the press!

Available for the holidays and beyond through our online store, we are currently offering four selections: “Vermont Evergreens”, “Mad River Glen”, “Skiing Vermont” and “Skiing the Mad River Valley”.

Each selection is presented as an 8-card set (4 images, 2 of each), including envelopes. The cards are blank, and are printed on 100% post-consumer, recycled paper with soy-based ink, in the U.S.A…not China. The 8-card packs, as well as individual cards will also be for sale through a variety of galleries and Vermont retailers. Contact us for details.

Ski It While You Can!

Weeks of surfing beautiful ocean waves on the coast and running/biking through the brilliant colors of fall in the mountains were capped this week by our first ski day of the season.¬† By sunrise on Wednesday 10/22, 2-3″ of October snow had blanketed our local mountains – just enough to make our favorite low-angle, moss-laden, rock-free ski runs skiable. We climbed and skied for about five hours…caught up with some great friends…and probably logged a casual 5000′ vertical.

It was a real treat be back on the skis again… Emily is “quite pleased”. If the big brown stripes on the woolly catepillars are any indication, we are in for another snowy winter.

Ski it while you can!
