Hammonasset Beach State Park Photos

One really windy day last autumn, I drove over to Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, Connecticut and took some photos along the beach. These two shots are very close to one another along this beach on Long Island Sound. The first one is looking west and the second one is a little further down the beach […]

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

One of the Local Squirrels, Frustrated by the New Bird Feeder

Here’s a photo of one of my local hoodlums squirrels as he tries to figure out how to pillage my Nature Products Model 431 bird feeder.  So far, he’s been totally unsuccessful and is relegated to picking up scraps that the birds leave.  If you look closely at his fuzzy little face, you can see the […]

Deer Fawn Browsing at the Edge of Woods

A few weeks ago, I looked out my window and saw this fawn and her mother browsing at the edge of the woods.  It’s been a tough winter here and at the time there wasn’t much green, so I’m sure they were really hungry.  Luckily, it’s started to green up a little here in Connecticut, […]

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Birds at My BirdfeederIn an earlier post, I mentioned that I had purchased and installed a Nature Products 431 squirrel-proof bird feeder.  So far, it’s been working great – the birds really like it and the squirrels can’t figure out how to get to the […]

Birch Bark Photos

Last weekend I took a few photos of some birch bark I found in the woods.  I wasn’t sure how they were going to turn out, since I didn’t use a tripod.  However, after I processed them with some of the Nik Software programs and Lightroom, I think they’re not too bad. I’ve been taking quite […]

Far Mill River Waterfall in Shelton and Stratford, Connecticut

  A few weeks ago, I published a post on a trip to Indian Wells State Park and the photos of a waterfall there.  In my discussions with some of the locals, one of them mentioned another waterfall on the Far Mill River.  Over this weekend, I hiked along the Far Mill River and took […]

The Lagoon Nebula Captured with SLOOH Telescope

Here’s another astrophoto attempt.  I took this “snapshot” through one of the SLOOH.com telescopes last night and have been playing around with processing off and on throughout the day.  I’m going to keep experimenting, but so far, I’ve gotten the best results by using Topaz Labs software, primarily Topaz Adjust and Topaz Detail, blending those layers using the Linear Dodge […]
