Vermont 100 – Pretty Details

Filed under: Photography — Tags: , , — Miriam @ 12:00 pm

Central Vermont in July is truely a beautiful place. The Vermont 100 course goes through hilly grassy horse country. Some of the barns are more beautiful than most homes. The hills and mountains make for amazing views. Even something as simple as a wooden fence can draw your eyes.

Most beautiful is how green everything is. This is similar to New Hampshire. When Adam and I took our post graduation vacation to Nevada-Utah-Arizona at one point we agreed that the sights we were looking at were simply some of the most beautiful we had ever seen, but that we missed Northern New England’s sea of green.

I was happy to catch this fence as sun was setting on a horse farm on the course.

IMGP1729I loved this whirligig detail at the end of the chute at Westwind Aid Station.

IMGP1630Mount Ascutney in the distance.

IMGP1443This handler crew was having a great time with costumes at different stations. I loved this series of hats.

The rest of the Vermont 100 posts:

  1. Race report/results
  2. The horses in the race
  3. The people behind the racer
  4. The importance of a pacer

I took over 700 pictures during the race. Some were dark, some just turned out blurry. So I think my flickr set only has about 433.  I uploaded plenty of pictures of people I do not know. So if you find a picture of yourself and like it, feel free to download it in original size and keep it for yourself.
