The Connecticut River from Haddam Meadows State Park

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Connecticut River

  As you can see in the photos, the sky was intense the day I visited Haddam Meadows State Park.  It was late afternoon and the sun was behind me shining through some clouds and below the ones in the photo.  It looked like a giant spotlight was focused on the trees in the far […]

Macedonia Brook at Macedonia Brook State Park

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Macedonia Brook State Park

  In late October, I visited Macedonia Brook State Park in Kent, Connecticut (see my previous post in the series for additional photos).  It was a very beautiful park and I was very surprised how much I liked it.  Macedonia Brook (hence the name) runs through the park and has lots of great opportunities for photographs.  In […]

  The day before the big October  snow storm here in Connecticut, I took this photo of Pickett’s Pond at Osbornedale State Park in Derby, Connecticut.  This photo is at the end of the pond away from the parking lot and was a very interesting little area with lily pads, rushes, moss, and colorful trees.

Foggy Morning in Shelton, Connecticut

Foggy Morning

  A few weeks ago, I grabbed my camera when I saw the fog outside.  The fog was really thick;  this was after the big October snow storm and a warm front was moving in.   As you can see, when this photo was taken, the fall colors weren’t too bad. As of today, most of the trees […]

River Otter (Lontra canadensis) at Beardsley Zoo

River Otter at Beardsley Zoo

This entry is part 2 of 6 in the series Beardsley Zoo

  The River Otters (Lontra canadensis) were probably the most interesting animals at the Beardsley Zoo;  they definitely had the most people watching them when I was there.  They were swimming, flipping, and generally clowning around.  Another great exhibit, which even has a water slide made out of a hollowed out log (unfortunately, they didn’t […]

Prarie Dogs at Beardsley Zoo

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Beardsley Zoo

  My thanks to these two cute little prarie dogs (Cynomys ludovicians) for posing for this photograph.  I really enjoyed the prarie dog exhibit at the Beardsley Zoo – it is very well done and has an interactive area where you can stick your head out like a prarie dog.  Definitely worth seeing.   Technorati Tags: […]

Gray Wolf at Beardsley Zoo

This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Beardsley Zoo

  Today was another day that I wanted to stay relatively close to home.  I headed out with the intention of checking out the foliage in southern Connecticut, but after a short drive, it was looking bleak – most of the autumn colors are gone (except for in my neighborhood, where it’s still not bad).  […]

Sun setting in the Lordship area of Stratford, Connecticut

Sunset in Lordship

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Stratford, Connecticut

  Today, I decided to stay relatively close to home, so I drove down to Milford and Stratford, Connecticut.  Right before heading home, I stopped at a Long Island Sound beach in the Lordship area of Stratford (if you’re familiar with the area, it’s right by Marnick’s).  This photo was taken right as the sun was starting to […]
