09.18.2018 Acadia Finale

Wish we were still there. One week doesn’t come close to exploring this great park. Next time I’ll spend more time in the woods.

09.17.2018 Another Roadside Attraction

Just a quiet foggy day in Quabbin Park on Saturday.  Shortly before the scene with the goldenrod I came across this which is a repeat of something I shot two years ago.  At that time there were black-eyed susans…this time calico asters and goldenrod.

09.16.2018 Quabbin Hill Goldenrod Landscape

The fog wasn’t quite as thick as advertised but still enough for some ambiance.  These showy goldenrods are not as large a patch as it appears, but I got close to them and the wide angle gives a much larger appearance to the grouping.

An indication of fog in my future as I left the house this morning for Quabbin Park.

Just thought I’d share one of our many happy moments at Acadia .  Actually two moments. At Jesup Path, a favorite spot.

09.14.2018 The More Monarchs the Merrier

Just one image to show but yesterday we had 5 caterpillars on our milkweed plants. That’s more than we’ve ever had at one time and this year without a doubt has been our best ever.  Of course, we do have more plants this year than any before but the larvae share so I don’t think that is the prime factor.  At any rate, that we’ve had so many makes me feel that our little bit of milkweed may have contributed to a bounce back of sorts for the species, even if a very small bit.

09.13.2018 Buffam Brook Upstream Cascade

This is a more intimate look at this cascade previously shared on August 15.  Aside from a different framing, I have refined the processing a bit more, pulling the closer cascade out from the background and adding a bit more emphasis to the green reflection at the top.

The past two weeks haven’t seen much rain here so I have not looked for water images.  But we received the remnants of Gordon this week along with a lot of other bits of precipitation that are dotting the country so this weekend might be good for that.  I don’t know whether Florence will be coming our way, but it sounds like the southeast, especially the Carolinas, are going to get hit hard and over a few days possibly.  I hope it weakens considerably once it makes landfall so they do not receive much damage.
