I set out yesterday morning for Chesterfield Gorge because I had heard about the Painted Trilliums being in flower there. I might not have gone for that ride and just waited for some closer to home (it’s an hour ride) but there is also a little waterfall and with the previous day’s rain I thought it would be worth the trip. Those are to follow. These are the first and last shots I made, the beginning and end to an enjoyable shoot with something new to me. The first is a farm with a pasture that I intend to photograph again, with or without the cows.
On the way home I noticed some nice cloud activity and hoped they didn’t clear out before I got to this view of the Holyoke Mountain Range which is across from that tree I so often shoot. I didn’t miss them and made several images as the clouds moved across the sky, this being my favorite.
This is a two frame pano from seven frames that I decided did not work out as I had hoped when shooting. Joined and cropped I think it made for a tighter and more interesting composition than the whole.
