Yep. More from Dean Brook but this time three new parts.
I had been planning to visit Acadia in June the next, but a couple of things came up and I cancelled that plan. One of those things was the realization that there are way too many places in my neighborhood that I have yet to visit. This post shows three sections of Dean Brook that I had never set foot in until today. Well, two but maybe three. I’ll explain.
This first brook has no name according to Google Maps. It seems like it might, but GM just shows it as a stream of water feeding into Dean Brook…hence its inclusion here as part of Dean Brook. It is actually just a few long strides from my last Painted Trillium post. I really like finding these neat little waterfalls in the middle of the woods. It’s possible that I am the only one to ever photograph this.I recently chatted with Sandra Schänzer about photographing distant places which are often quite well known photography subjects as opposed to less visited local places. I’ve decided to spend even more time locally this year. Even though I am now working part-time, there never seems to be enough time for photography.
After visiting this spot, I wandered back up the trail and followed one that leads to a part of Dean Brook that is on the opposite side from where I usually visit. I am going to have to give this area more exploration, but this is a start.As you might be able to tell, the water was running quite hard. I was worried the constant powerful flow would shake the tripod and camera, but it held pretty steady. So did I. 🙂 You might notice a flow coming into the brook from the right near that curved tree. That is where the previous brook enters Dean Brook.
While I was walking back up the trail from this spot, I noticed a waterfall at the bottom of the hill I was climbing and had a fair idea as to where it was along the road where I was parked. Once on the road it was a short walk and short bushwhack to the spot with the falls. There were a few ways to compose this, but for now, this is the angle I thought worked the best. Another day may produce another angle.After all that, I hadn’t had enough and went to one more brook. But that’s for another post. I hope these images prove worth reading my rambling about all of this. Sometimes I feel like I talk too much and should just follow the old Frank Zappa album title “Shut Up N Play Yer Guitar”.…only in my case, well obviously not a guitar. 🙂
