05.14.2022 Spring Vernal Spring

Sort of like Spring Spring Spring which sounds more like Sing Sing Sing than Spring Sprang Sprung.  A favorite temporary brook flowing from Quabbin Hill to the reservoir proper.

    Ah yes, I love this one. It could be so easily overlooked but you’ve managed to zoom in such a beautiful little scene. And I love how that bright green plant stands out so well. Really nice, Steve!

  2. We saw Benny Goodman in an old movie on television yesterday. No brook appeared in the film.

    The light green leaves give depth to the brook. Beautiful.

    The tranquillity of the gently cascading water emanates from this outstanding photo.

    This is so lovely that I would want to stand here for a while, just watching the water flow. 🙂

    It’s a lovely scene, but I can’t keep myself from seeing the large green plant as something that’s been superimposed on the image. It looks odd and artificial to me — but that’s probably just me not understanding or being able to appreciate how you photographed the scene. The brook itself is gorgeous; it’s a place that I’d love to be able to visit as an escape from our heat.

    • Really? Skunk Cabbages-Symplocarpus foetidus are quite common in and around brooks and there were several to choose from along this one. Another plant with a similar appearance that grows in this brook is False Hellebore-Veratrum viride.


  8. I can smell the moss and feel the moisture in the air …. And I’d love to be sitting there listening to the water.
