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.

  1. Why did it take you so long to get a photograph of the brook per se?


    • I think the reason the pond was so low and the cascade so nice is that something happened to the beaver dam that holds the water back and keeps the pond full. The reason I hadn’t shot this cascade is simply because I never saw it with this flow before…mostly likely because the beaverworks kept the flow low.

    Water in motion and poetry in motion. I like the way the ferns (?) cascade like the water.

    I remember your pink water lily from Moosehorn pond. I can’t believe three years have passed since you let me use your photo in one of my posts. Now, I can add the brook to my mental image of the place.
