100204 - Heublein Tower - Autumn


Route 10 in Avon and Simsbury parallels Talcott Mountain, also known as Avon Mountain. Atop Talcott Mountain is Heublein Tower, a famous landmark which can be seen from many adjoining towns. Commercial pilots use it as a marker when flying into Bradley Airport in Windsor.

Every fall the hills are ablaze with autumn color and is the perfect time to take a picture of the Tower in its environment. This image was taken from the parking lot of one of the businesses which line the Route 10 corridor. Waiting for that perfect blue sky is a must.

The image was shot with a Pentax 67II and 55-90mm f/4 zoom lens with Fuji Velvia.

This image is available framed or matte only in the following sizes:
●    8x10 print / 11x14 matte
●  11x14 print / 16x20 matte
●  16x20 print / 20x24 matte
