02.01.2021 Dawn sky over a field on Pratt Corner Road

Well so much for January.  That was fast. We had snow today and it is till continuing into tomorrow morning. This is from a past drive by on the way back from Dean Brook. I didn’t get out this morning and have to work tomorrow so might not get to share our bounty.

  1. The picture looks better when clicked on to enlarge it and reveal much more detail.

    This is, quite literally, a breath of fresh air, as we have moved into high summer. The grands were running through the sprinkler (the Sprout in here birthday suit) to cool off from the heat. I fear we’re in for another summer drought.

    Maybe some of the snow will last…I like this image for its’ simple truth of the beauty of a seemingly ordinary place. In fact, there’s so much to look at and enjoy.

    • Thanks, Lynn. It is a typical humble roadside scene here in New ENgland. A farm to the left and more woods to the right before heading back into town and lots of development.
      Our nights have hovered just below freezing and the days just above so the snow is sticking around but melting a bit and compacting.

        I certainly recognize that look from driving around upstate NY, northern NJ, Mass and CT. Thank god for places like that on the edges of the developed areas. 🙂

      • This land is protected by arrangement with the state for agricultural preservation. The owner’s father used to lead trail repair and cleanup hikes with the Appalachian Mountain Club every year so I was familiar with the property having taken part previously. It was always well attended as he treated everyone to a steak dinner afterwards in one of his barns here. 🙂

        Agricultural preservation is a very good thing! One of the things we liked about the area we’re in now is the great respect for agriculture in the county. Treating people to steak dinners after trail clean-up? I don’t think THAT happens here. 😉

      • I doubt it happens here any longer either.

    We didn’t get nearly the snow you did up there, but I missed out photographing it, as least so far. I made the effort to drive to a park hoping to get some views of snow in the woods and along the creek but the entrance was closed, and I didn’t have backup plans. And now it’s back to work. But it did look nice watching it fall. 🙂 Beautiful morning image with that nice warm glow to balance out the cold of the snow.

    • I’ve had that same experience at Quabbin Park. They won’t open until making a drive through to be sure no branches have fallen and the road is clear. Kind of frustrating when you drive for a half hour to get someplace only to be turned away. I’ve learned not to bother.

    “That field on Pratt Corner Road” sounds like it ought to be the title of a poem. That’s a poem of a photo: it evokes and suggests, rather than lecturing.
