A photo from my future home in Vermont. I hiked up into our backyard and took a shot through the trees, now that was no easy feat with out showshoes ( a nessasity for next year!) While walking up there I fell through the snow frequently up to my knees and occassionally to my hip, oh yeah we get snow in Vermont!
As you can see the house sits on the side of a mountain the chain of mountains in Vermont is the Apalachians a chain of mountains that goes from as far North as Maine and as far south as Georgia! There is a trail in the mountains that is 2,167-miles (3,488 kms) long along the ridge, The trail traverses Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Georgia. The Appalachian Trail is used by day, weekend and other short-term hikers, section hikers and thru-hikers. Thru-hikers hike the entire length of the Trail in one season. The views are amazing!

When the snow is at its maximum is there any house left unburied?!!! Anyway it looks fantastic. It is a nice picture and i hope you will enjoy living there.

It's a beautiful shot of a very beautiful place. You're lucky to have your future house located in such area. Though I would hate the cold, I would love to spend some times there, especially within your seemingly warm house.
You managed to capture a beautiful light in a time of the year which doesn't offer such opportunity quite often. The leaves of the trees, with the light, create a warm atmosphere to an otherwise cold and dead view.

Ahhh, this is intetresting to see!
Quite different from where you live now, and the surroundings are no doubt rural...
I like the location in the forest, otherwise the view is of a most familiar kind!

The trees are a natural frame around the house. The point of view leads our eyes towards the mountains. The reflection of the light on the snow brings out the colors. Have a nice day.

Congratulations on your new home which is located in a lovely setting in this narrow notch along the Long Trail. Excellent winter image with nice lighting that lays soothing shadows on the deep snow.

You're lucky to have a property like this ... nice to get away place from the hustle and bustle of the city life... must be exciting time for you. You've captured this lovely scene wonderfully ... in fact you can have your own private skifield with all that snow :) All the best settling to your new home. Tfs

Sorry for very late commenting on your pictures, This looks very nice, so lovely and beautiful place and picture too. I really like the strong composition, That house through the trees looks wonderful. A great framing too.

Because I have not seen you for quite a while, I decided to check up on you and glad I did. I don't spend time anymore on TE, but I'm glad I took a look and could see your new home.
A wonderful picture of yet another wonderful place!
Hope you all are happy and healthy.
PS No need for a return visit, because I hardly ever check.
