Singing of Swamps and Waterfalls
Before I head out today in quest for more wildflowers, I’ll share a couple more favorite spots. First is Senter Falls on Cold Brook. Why the heck they’re called that, I don’t know. I suspect my friend Mike made it up. It’s a relatively popular location for local photographers and I’ve shot it several times. Still, the lure is powerful since it’s such an easy place to get to. Here is a “new” view and a “classic” view for you.
For this one I set the camera on my bag of barley that was on a rock a couple inches above the water while I stood in some myself. Yay for goretex, but I think I need some waders or something this year. Anyway, this is below the main falls and I’ve shot it before with much less water in the brook and more rock exposed. I love how the seasons change the image possibilities which is another reason to keep going there.
This is the main part of the falls and I think there are permanent tripod marks where I shot this. : )
Moving on to another favorite spot, the Atlantic white cedar swamp in Manchester. So easy to get to and such a vital habitat not only for these rare trees, but for certain butterflies that only live where they grow. Even though the ferns aren’t as fully developed as I usually like, I couldn’t resist getting a shot in the afternoon light.
Just look at that skunk cabbage!
