The Garden in the Woods II

In what I think it becoming an annual ritual, my mom and I went to The Garden in the Woods again in May. We don't go exactly on Mothers Day, but near to it and this year we went a couple of weeks earlier than last year and boy was it different. Most of the ferns... Continue Reading →

Parker River NWR, Plum Island

Every once in a while I do go somewhere besides the woods. Because I'm in New England that doesn't leave a lot of somewhere else. No desert. No badlands. No canyons. No sweeping steppes. We do have coastline though and so I'll make the trek. This time to Plum Island which is the home of... Continue Reading →

Step into the past

A couple of years ago, when I first saw photos of Royalston Falls in Royalston, MA, I knew I had to go see them for myself. For the longest time I thought they were on the Tully river, but it turns out that the watercourse is actually Falls Brook. Original, huh? Hey, I didn't name... Continue Reading →

Falling into Autumn

So short, but so glorious. Autumn in New England is an amazing time. Even though I've been a bit creatively stymied I'm out more than ever just to be there. Not only is there terrific color almost everywhere you look, but there's also the crunch of leaves underfoot and the scent of them in the... Continue Reading →

Piscataquog: Middle Branch

I'd been meaning to get back here since the first time I explored this little swatch of conservation land.  It contains the middle branch of the Piscataquog river and has some interesting aspects to it like a pond and some defunct bridges.  Unfortunately the light wasn't overly cooperative and when the sun came out I...

Gimme all your lupines!

Ah Monty Python, what a bunch of mad freaks you were.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check this out - Part 2.  You really have to like MP to find it funny, but I always think of it when anyone mentions lupines.  And the other day when I shot some, I... Continue Reading →

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....

The Mighty Piscataquog

The Piscataquog is my favorite river.  I know, weird, huh?  It's an important waterway not only for people, but for many animals and plants that thrive in the ancient glacial habitats along its course. It has 3 branches (north, middle and south), runs for 57 miles with little interruption and its name translates from a... Continue Reading →
