This is yet another visitation of a classic Arnold Kaplan composition. Waits River is literally a wide spot in the road as you move from one small Vermont village to another. It took me quite a bit of research to determine *exactly* where this shot was taken. After driving the back roads a bit, I still had to adjust my bearings a bit to find the right turns and ensure that I had indeed arrived in Waits River.
I think this is a good example of the vanishing classic New England village. Even after some fairly extensive retouching to remove the most egregious signs of modern man, I am still left with a myriad of wires, posts, and other relics of modern life that weren’t one hundred years ago or even less. Still, this image is a great reminder of what Vermont used to look like and, in some cases, still does. Enjoy.
