10.12.2018 just a hello

Wanted to let you know why I haven’t been participating.  I have been in the hospital since Saturday. We don’t know what is wrong with me although it seems that I am getting better.  Hopefully I’ll get out of here soon.

10.02.2018 More mushroom finds

As I was looking around the North Quabbin woods this past Saturday I saw this  mushroom standing out in the darkness.

This is a Crown-tipped Coral-Artomyces pyxidatus.

Sometimes walking our dog results in finding something as well, in this case right in our lawn.

Amethyst Deceiver-Laccaria amethystina.  These are relatively small mushrooms that are edible although I read that sometimes they collect arsenic from the ground.  I’ll pass.

10.01.2018 Farewell, September.

As I mentioned yesterday, September flew by.  Pretty sure I’m not the only one who felt that way.  Lots of rain and unseasonable warmth that, I hope, will produce some nice color for the October foliage show. Another thing that comes with October is fog.

To October…and Beyond.  🙂

09.30.2018 Autumn’s beginnings…foliage and fog

While October has not yet arrived, just a day away though, there are bits of color to be found in small areas. Close to water is usually at the lead and that was the case with this image next to a swamp in North Quabbin.

Feels like we were at Acadia just last week and now the month is over. 😯

09.28.2018 Moosehorn Brook

I’ve always wanted to make an image of some part of Moosehorn Brook.  Last year I made one within Quabbin that I wasn’t thrilled with and got lost for the first time I can recall.  Fortunately I ran into a guy who knew his way around and we walked out together.

All the other shots I’ve made of Moosehorn Brook have come from the beaver pond it created from their damming it.  Pink Waterlilies and bullfrogs, mostly.  On Monday I finally noticed a cascade to shoot which surprised me as the pond was lower than I had ever seen it. But there was enough water for this one pretty cascade.

We’ve had substantial rains a couple of times this week, so maybe I’ll find more opportunities to spend time making water in motion images this weekend.
