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 […]

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 […]

October Snow Storm in Connecticut

October Snow Storm

Hard to believe, but we’re getting a freak October snow storm here in Connecticut.  The trees in my area still have most of their leaves – they must be really confused.  When this is all finished, we could have up to 5 inches here and possibly more in northern Connecticut. Another post will be coming tonight […]

This entry is part 4 of 6 in the series Housatonic RiverThis afternoon, I drove to Webb Mountain Park in Monroe, Connecticut and hiked up to the scenic overlook, aka “Goat Rock”.  If you park at campground site number 2, it’s a very short hike to the overlook.  Unfortunately, I think the gates are closed after November 1st until Memorial Day […]

Mute Swan (Cynus olor)

Mute Swan at Hammonasset Beach State Park

Early this year (I believe it was May) I took a trip to Hammonasset Beach State Park and was able to get the photo below of a Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) on one of the small ponds in the park.  I haven’t posted this yet and had honestly forgotten all about it until I was trying […]

Pomperaug River at Audubon Center at Bent of the River

Audubon Center at Bent of the River

The Audubon Center at Bent of the River (I’ve checked a couple of times and it is “Bent”, not “Bend”) is a very nice tract of 660 acres in Southbury, Connecticut owned by the National Audubon Society.  I was driving in the area and just happened upon the sign for the Center and decided to stop.  I’m really […]
