Description:
This color photograph, by Mack Derick of Orleans, Vermont, captures a woman "painting" vivid leaves on an autumn day in 1947. The woman poses in the center foreground of the image, wearing a sheer blue gown that hangs down to the leaf-covered ground. She holds a pallet covered in bright daubs of paint and pretends to paint the orange and red leaves on the tree before her. The woman faces two tall birch trees and is surrounded by leaves of yellow, red, and orange. Smaller green shrubs appear scattered behind the woman, and dead brown leaves litter the ground. Hills of thick deciduous trees rise in the background. All rights reserved, copyright Vermont Life Magazine. Contact Vermont Life at editors@VermontLlfe.com

Autumn Dryad- Mac Derick, photograph of Orleans, Vermont, spent half his life visualizing a picture he was going to get - some day. But, like a painter, he had to have just the right setting, and what's more- exactly the right subject. Then last fall, nature ran riot with color in such a fashion that surely, men said, some autumn dryad out of medieval mythology must have painted the vivid reds and yellows of the maple and birch. This was the setting. Then, one day, he chanced upon the subject, a girl of delicate, ethereal beauty. Here at last was the awaited combination; the picture was made- and a twenty- year dream realized.
