This is an outcrop located on the north side of Rt 4 between exits 4 and 5 in east-central Vermont. This formation is characterized by "purple, gray-green, and variegated slate and phyllite containing minor interbeds of white to green quartzite; locally albitic. Purple and green chloritoid-bearing slate and phyllite is within dashed line in northern Taconic Range, but not separated farther south" (USGS). It is the primary cliff forming unit in the Poultney vicinity and the purple-green coloring is visible in surrounding roadcuts, exposed in the Poultney River at favorite swimming holes, and found in most slate quarry slag piles.

I fought with the clouds and lighting for quite some time and there are a few shadows but overall I'm happy with the final outcome.
