Tartia-Engel Falls in East Hampton, Connecticut

Another View of Tartia-Engel Falls

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Tartia-Engel Falls

Here’s another view of Tartia-Engel Falls in East Hampton, Connecticut.  For this photo, I did some minor editing in Lightroom and then several edits in Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro 4. One thing I really like about this waterfall is the dark color of the rocks, which makes the water have a dark, rich color. […]

Northern Cardinal in Winter

Northern Cardinal in Winter

This entry is part 13 of 13 in the series Birds at My Birdfeeder

Another photo of one of my backyard Northern Cardinals.  This one was taken with my Canon 7D and 400 mm lens at f/5.6.  The 7D and 400 mm lens combination is quickly becoming my favorite photo setup for bird photography.  The 300mm with Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4 teleconverter is very nice and has the […]

Tartia-Engel Falls

This entry is part 1 of 2 in the series Tartia-Engel Falls

In the fall of last year, I was on a tear photographing waterfalls.  I posted several of them, but after awhile, this website was beginning to look like a “Waterfall Blog”, so I gave the waterfalls a little rest.  But now it’s time to post a few more. Tartia-Engel Falls in East Hampton, Connecticut doesn’t […]

Hawk in the Backyard

Backyard Hawk

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Hawks

Today was a relatively nice, warm day here in Connecticut, so I spend some time out on the deck relaxing.  I decided to take my Canon 7D with the 400 mm lens, just in case I saw any birds in the trees of the backyard.  After about 15 minutes, this guy (or gal) landed in […]

Essex Cove in Autumn

Cove in Essex, Connecticut

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Essex, Connecticut

In the fall of last year, I visited Essex, Connecticut late one afternoon and took this shot of the cove near the town park.  Essex is a beautiful, quaint little town close to Long Island Sound on the Connecticut River and I always enjoy visiting. For this photo, I ran it though Nik Software’s HDR […]

Green Winged Teal in marsh

Green Winged Teal at The Coastal Center at Milford Point

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series The Coastal Center at Milford Point

A few weeks ago when I visited The Coastal Center at Milford Point, I saw this little guy walking across the mudflats in the marsh at low tide.  He was walking towards his other Green Winged Teal buddies that were about a football field’s length away.  The funny thing was that other ducks were swimming […]

A Yellow-Rumped Warbler in Hammonasset Beach State Park

Two Photos of Yellow-Rumped Warblers

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Hammonasset Beach State Park

During my trip over the weekend to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, Connecticut, I walked out to Willard’s Island.  There weren’t many people out, so I slowly walked around the perimeter of the island and ran into a flock of Yellow-Rumped Warblers darting in and out of the trees .  If you are wondering […]

Horned Lark at Hammonasset Beach State Park

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Hammonasset Beach State Park

Yesterday, I decided to get up early today and be at Hammonasset Beach State Park by 7 am.  I almost made it – it was more like 7:10 when I rolled into the park.  I was hoping to photograph shorebirds, ducks, raptors, and whatever other species of bird I could find.  I drove around most […]
