In September I got an assignment for Boston Magazine to shoot their feature travel story. I drove all over New England for the photos and Vermont was the last story to tell. I knew with the mountains and Lake Champlain and the islands the only way to tell the unique story of the road was with a vantage from high above. I traded a case of beer and fuel for a trip to 5,000 feet, from Burlington to the Canadian border we flew. But my ace pilot took me down to just above the tree line and we buzzed the many bridges that connect the islands to the mainland, shooting while the wind whipped my camera gear around the open cabin. We flew with the doors and windows open, like being on a motorcycle in the sky. In the end Boston Magazine ran two aerial photos for the Travel Feature. wooooo!
