After the storm

After Hurricane Sandy blew into the area and filled up our smaller streams and rivers again, it was a perfect time to get out and see them. Some of them I'd just been to (Purgatory) and WOW, what a difference a storm makes. At the time it didn't seem like we got that much rain,... Continue Reading →

Garwin Falls redux

When some local photographers wanted to get together for a meetup at Garwin Falls, I was all over it. Garwin is one of my favorite spots and I'd never met any of the folks who were going. An old friend and new friends; how could I say no? The organizer had scouted the falls a... Continue Reading →

Crossing the Streams

No matter what Egon says, I crossed. Cold Brook was running very low. I've posted about Senter Falls since I've shot there a few times - here and here and here and here. Boy, I guess I go there a lot, huh? They're always beautiful even when the water is minimal which it was the other day and... 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 →

Waterfalls and Wildflowers

Crazy, huh?  Spring is so...springy.  The two Ws are just irresistible - wildflowers and waterfalls. I've shot these particular falls before, but after a big storm knocked branches and whole trees down so the cascades were a mess.  When I saw fellow photographer Jeff Newcomer's recent post about Garwin falls, I saw they were clear...

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 Sweet Spot

Because the forecast called for overcast skies with a minimal chance of rain, I decided to take a ride over to one of my favorite little conservation areas to see if the brook was flowing and if there might be any wildflowers about.  Pulpit Rock is about 20 minutes away and, while small, gave me...

Waterfall weekend

This year we've had so much rain that the waterfalls are still flowing mightily.  Strange for this time of year when most streams, rivers and brooks are quite low.  Makes for some fantastic photography though and of course I was out there. This is Mill Brook.  Yeah, original huh?  There is still a semi-active mill... Continue Reading →
