Here in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont along the Connecticut River a fascinating tradition emerges from the deep cold winters.

Fielding's work hints toward the Steam Punk movement with its revisionist history of what could have been but an added element of the absurd. Indeed the Airstream campers have the suggestion tha...

Up, up and away with gorgeous, colorful images of hot air balloons in this new calendar from photographer Edward Fielding. The calender features twelve bright, colorful and down right "uplifting" images of balloons from the 32nd Annual Quechee Hot Air Balloon, Craft & Music Festival in Quechee Vermont.
