Summer Wanderings Part 4: Vermont

A Heaping Slice of Americana in Southern Vermont

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Welcome to Part 4 of our summer series – featuring our last New England state of the summer, Vermont!  One of our favorite things about these summer trips is the chance to see family and friends while on the road.  Every other year, my dad’s side of the family gets together for a good ol’ fashioned reunion and this time, we found ourselves in the little valley town of Dover, Vermont.  As providence would have it, the weekend of our retreat was also the date of the Vermont Blueberry Festival in the small towns of Deerfield Valley – including… you guessed it, Dover.  Complete with all the fixin’s you would expect from a small town festival, there was a parade (above), craft show, blueberry pancake breakfast, and a myriad of other festivities that absolutely screamed Americana!

The parade was truly a treat.  I admittedly went to the parade with little desire, but the combination of antique cars and an overwhelming sense of nostalgia, quickly warmed me up.  One thing that really took me back was the drum and fife corps – there were several from around New England, and I could have almost believed I was eight again, sitting along Post Road as I watched the bands go by during our town’s annual Summerfest.  All in all, our time in New England was a wonderful opportunity to take a deep breath, slow down, and enjoy the many gifts God has given us – oh, and to take a few thousand pictures…

Summer Wanderings Part 3: Massachusetts

Exploring Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

After a quick break to show you some of our automotive work from last weekend’s Cars and Coffee, I’m digging back into our summer archives for the next installment our series – this time featuring the wind-swept shores of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod National Seashore.  Despite having grown up only 20 miles from the Massachusetts border and, traffic permitting (which it often doesn’t) about an hour and a half from Cape Cod – our first trip to the Massachusetts’ geographic forearm was only a few winters ago, when family had briefly lived there.  However, it was a quick visit, and we didn’t get to see much of the Cape or any of its famous seashore.  But thankfully, that all changed this summer, as we took an overnight trip to explore the quaint villages and soaring dunes that line the easternmost bits of Massachusetts.

If you’ve followed our blog for any time, you probably know how much we enjoy lighthouses, and with several lighthouses in and around the seashore, we made sure to stop at several.  If you’ve ever had a bag of Cape Cod chips, chances are the top photo looks a bit familiar.  The brightly-colored Nauset Light was the model for the bag – and a picturesque model at that!  Best of all, the lighthouse is regularly open for tours thanks to the organization that cares for the historic structure.  While on the Cape, we also visited Chatham Light, the decommissioned Three Sisters Light (which once stood where Nauset Light now resides), and finally Highland Light.

But what if lighthouses aren’t your thing?  Well, the Cape still has plenty to offer, from great restaurants and shops, sandy beaches, wild seals and rare birds, and historic sites like the first Marconi wireless station and the Pilgrim’s Monument, noting the site of the Pilgrim’s first landing in the New World.

Summer Wanderings Part 2: New Hampshire

From Sea Level to the Top of New Hampshire

The summit of Mt Washington from the 5,000 foot mark of the Auto Road

Welcome to part two of our summer wanderings – featuring the great state of New Hampshire.  Full disclosure – I may be a bit partial to the ol’ Granite State, having been born and raised in southern New Hampshire.  I’ve got many fond memories – from evening picnics at Great Island Common to summer camps in the White Mountains, and a harrowing trip up the Mt. Washington Auto Road in and old Volvo 240 station wagon.  In fact, after a bit of convincing, we decided to reenact the later memory with our young family. And so, we piled into the Honda and ventured up the steep, eight-mile road to the clouds.  The Auto Road is actually billed as the oldest purpose-made tourist attraction in the US, opening in 1861 with carriage rides up to the summit.

On our trip up, things were pretty uneventful, aside from a cloud-covered summit and its sustained 50 mph winds with gusts to 70 mph – made all the more enjoyable by temperatures barely above 50 degrees.  I’ve got to say, it was a pleasant break from the rather stagnant 90 degree weather at the base of the mountain.  At 6,288 feet, Mt Washington is the tallest mountain in the Appalachians north of Virginia, and the highest place in New Hampshire.

Whaleback Light – Kittery, ME – with the Victorian-era resort of Star Island in the background.

A few days earlier, we had gone to the shore at low tide to explore the tide pools with the kids.  You know what that means –  we managed to spend time at both the lowest and highest places in New Hampshire in one trip!  While along the coast, we visited Portsmouth Harbor Light – a steel and brick 19th century lighthouse welcoming ships at the entrance to the Piscatiqua River, which divides southern Maine from New Hampshire.  The light isn’t normally open to the public, but they have recently begun opening it for tours (for a nominal donation) during the summer on Sunday afternoons.  Though I lived in NH for 18 years and have been back every summer since, this was a first for us and well worth a couple of dollars to explore.  Come to think of it, there were a lot of first for us – but more on that later…

Dostie’s Dynamic Glen Kernan Duo

An Unlikely Pair of Unique Glen Kernan Homes

Deremer Studios Jacksonville Achitectural Photography

On an unseasonably cool and crisp Florida spring morning, we headed to the Glen Kernan neighborhood before dawn to photograph a pair of gorgeous and yet dissimilar new projects for our friends at Dostie Homes.  The first home, above, with its cedar shakes and traditional symmetry, was perfectly fitted to the New England-like weather of the day.  Inside, the home is far from antique, blending traditional elements and a few hints of craftsman architecture with a more spacious, modern open floor plan.  The second home, just a few hundred yards from the one above, offers up a more Mediterranean feel – blurring the lines between inside and out with its sweeping rear facade opening to the outdoor kitchen and backyard beyond.

A Very Autumn New England Winter – With a Side of Snow

New England Winter at its Awkwardest!

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

If you’ve been following the news at all, you probably know that this winter has been a bit… well… mild in New England.  In fact this year’s New England winter had been downright non-existent, with early autumn temperatures visiting us as late as the last week of December.  In fact, when we arrived in New Hampshire for our annual winter visit, the weather was so warm that we were out building a stick fort with the kids in shorts an t-shirts.  Though fun, it wasn’t exactly what we were hoping for. But, on the bright side, the unseasonably warm New England winter did have some advantages – for example, not suffering from frostbite on a pre-dawn Nubble Light shoot (above).  Plus, it has been years and years since I’d built a stick fort, so that was a nice walk down memory lane to share with the kids.

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

However, at long last, the jet stream dipped and a cold front came through, bringing that long-awaited first snow just before the New Year.  In Greenland, NH, about 5 miles from the ocean, we got about 6 inches of sometimes fluffy, sometimes wet snow.  Just enough for constructing our annual snow fort with the kids.  On our final day in New England, as we were packing for the long drive south, the sun had finally come out and with it, a beautiful sunburst shining through the dripping, misty trees.  The photo above is from just outside our door, with the Winnicut River slowly flowing along its banks as the night’s ice slowly melted.  Of course, this New England winter is far from over,  but if December was any indication of what is to come, perhaps this New England winter will be a bit more tolerable than the unceasing snows of the previous winter season.

Calendar Time – February 2015 HD Wallpaper!

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

Did you realize it’s already February?  Turns out I didn’t!  But late is better than never, so here’s our collection of February HD wallpaper for your enjoyment!   We missed out on snow during this year’s winter trip, so forgive me if I wax a bit nostalgic with some of my favorite winter scenes from New England.  However, if snow is the last thing you want gracing your screen right now, might I suggest one of several warm-colored reminders that this too shall pass – with glowing Florida sunsets and meandering Appalachia country streams.  As always, we’ve also included one of our favorite shots from the Amelia Island Concours D’Elegance – This time we’re including an image I’ve titled “The Curious Cohort” featuring three vehicles that, apart from having four wheels and an engine, couldn’t be more different in form or function. If you’re looking for more automotive-themed desktop wallpaper, be sure to check out our Automotive section!
