Small rapids on a stream in Old Mine Park, Trumbull, Connecticut

Old Mine Park – Trumbull, Connecticut

I was driving around a couple of days ago after work looking for something interesting to photograph when I came upon these scenes in Trumbull, Connecticut’s Old Mine Park.  Most times of the year, it wouldn’t be very interesting, but I really liked the fall foliage.

Dusk on Lake Zoar

Autumn on Lake Zoar

Here are a couple of photos I took of Lake Zoar at sunset.  Stevenson Dam forms Lake Zoar by blocking the flow of the Housatonic River.  The second photo shows Stevenson Dam and Highway 34 which crosses the dam.   Technorati Tags: Autumn, Connecticut, Housatonic River, Lake Zoar, Photos, Stevenson Dam

Autumn Photos from Mohawk Mountain in Mohawk State Forest

Dog Pond in Goshen, Connecticut

These photos were taken with my Canon T1i and a Tokina 80-400mm lens […]

Houses along the Housatonic

Below is a photo that made it to a finalist in the February Betterphoto.com competition.  This photo was taken in late Autumn of last year along the Housatonic River in Shelton and Derby.  I was standing on the Derby, Connecticut (although maybe I was in Seymour actually?) side of the river looking toward Shelton, Connecticut.  […]
