I drive from New York to New Hampshire for business on a regular basis. I nearly always take the route through Vermont, which has varying speed limits as I drive through little towns scattered across the state, and also boasts breathtaking scenery all four seasons of the year.
Since I’m always on my way to or from a photo shoot, I’m either in a hurry to get there because I’m barely on time or in a hurry to get home because I’m bone-tired. I’ve driven past so many photo ops that it’s verging on pathetic, what with my being a professional photographer and all. I’d probably be published in numerous national magazines if I could just bear to pull the car over and take three minutes to grab that perfect shot.
This past trip, the fates finally aligned and I ran across a beautiful sunset while my camera was within easy reach AND I was stopped to fill up my gas tank. I’ve made it a goal to get better at stopping to capture a moment when it’s right there in front of me, so with any luck, this will be the first of many work trip pics.
