Of course you can be sure that if I went to Dean Brook I did not only shoot that tree intimate, I also made some images of the brook.
I’ve been wanting to share this slide cascade for a while, but each time I visit the water is low. Yesterday it was running pretty good for a change.
As I was leaving, I looked at this from the jutting rock on the left and decided to do something there. My 24-70 wasn’t quite wide enough so I decided to try the Venus Optics Laowa 15mm macro lens. I purchased it for full frame closeup shots of flowers but with plenty of background included. It performs well as a landscape lens.
Today has been a strange one. It was snowing at dawn with large flakes coming down gently. Then the predicted wind picked up and turned into a squall. While driving back from Quabbin (it was closed for the snow) the squall became a short lived blizzard. Arriving in Amherst, I saw the sky turning blue and the snow was over. Later it came back and there have been bands of snow squalls in between blue skies. The wind, however, has been with us all day with strong gusts approaching 50 mph. We’ll see what tomorrow brings. The call is for more snow.
