11.26.2021 Falls Friday

Rainy day here in Western Massachusetts.  And I’m still in a Tryptophan stupor from yesterday’s gorge. Been napping with Bentley much of the day after our usual 2 a.m. nature call for the both of us. After our day of … Continue reading

11.23.2021 And for something a little more lively

11.21.2021 Not Exactly as Found

11.19.2021 Atherton Brook Rocks!

Actually, it does.  My favorite of the brooks that feed the Quabbin Reservoir, the cascades are varied and interesting and there is also a nice waterfall which appeared here several times including this from 2016. There are many cascades with … Continue reading

I’ve photographed this scene a few times.  The Quabbin Spillway is behind us here as we stand on the bridge over the escaping Swift River. Even with all the rain we’ve had recently there is little water flowing over the … Continue reading

11.05.2021 Flashback Friday-Murphy Falls in Autumn

After yesterday’s post from Dean Brook and reference to Murphy Falls, I thought I’d share this old image from 2015.  Similar has appeared in portrait format back then but this is the first appearance in landscape. And of course countless … Continue reading
