Headstones in a cemetary

Happy Late Halloween

  BOO! I had planned to post this for Halloween, but had forgotten.  However, here in New England, Trick or Treating was postponed until this weekend, so I thought I would go ahead and post it.  This was taken in an old cemetary in Monroe, Connecticut.

Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis)

Dark-Eyed Junco in the Snow

  Last Sunday after the freak October snow storm, I photographed some birds outside around my bird feeder.  This little guy, a Dark-Eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis), was kind enough to do a little posing for me.  The birds must have been famished after the storm because they were attacking the bird feeder.  All of the snow […]

Exhibit inside the dome at Dinosaur State Park

Dinosaur State Park, Rocky Hill Connecticut

About a month ago, I stopped at Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill, Connecticut and took the photos below.  It’s a pretty cool place with a dome shaped exhibit hall that houses dioramas, specimens, and nature exhibits.  The park was opened in 1968 after construction workers discovered dinosaur tracks during excavation.  They’ve preserved many of the tracts […]

Tree and power line damage from October 2011 snow storm

Tree and Power Line Damage from October Snow Storm, 2011

I went out this afternoon and took some photos of a waterfall close to where I live.  Those came out well and will be in a later post.  In the waterfall area, there was very little damage from the storm, so I decided to head further north and revisit the Audubon Center at Bent of the River […]

Trees in autumn foliage in Connecticut after October snow storm, 2011

Autumn meets Winter: October Snow Storm 2011

Well, the October Snow Storm of 2011 is now past Connecticut, but it sure left a lot of damage.  Many homes in Connecticut, as well as other nearby states, have lost power and our governor is saying that some homes may not be restored for a week.  I was one of the lucky ones and […]

Waterfall at Indian Wells State Park - Shelton, Connecticut

Waterfall at Indian Wells State Park, October 2011

There are some photos on this blog of the waterfall at Indian Wells State Park in Shelton, Connecticut, but I thought they could be better, especially since I’m now using Nik Software’s Color Efex 4.0 in post-processing.  So, yesterday I was driving past the park and decided to stop and take a few shots.  It was […]
