This is another one of those photographs where ‘technically’ the subject, Egret, should have taken up more space in the image.
The Egret itself is sharp and crisp in the image so cropping would have been no problem.
I processed for a 16×9 print, landscape, to take advantage of the reeds in the fore and general brown bokeh in the balance of the photograph.
It seemed to me both the bird and the windy brown marsh were important to the image. At the end of the day it’s just an Egret picture not a Monet.
If you want to photograph wildlife this may not be the place. The woods are too dense for a clear shot. However, this is absolutely the place to sit and listen to a far off woodpecker and the wind.
Two photographs taken in a very small family cemetery. Essex, Connecticut.
The road was probably nothing more than a path when this cemetery was founded. Now it’s right off a busy street, up a few stones steps.
This photograph was part of my original set taken at the Haddam Meadows marsh a week or so ago. I did not include it previously since, well I missed it.
I was reminded of this shot by a photo just seen a few minutes ago. The same area frozen with solid ice. Winter comes fast.
I caught this right before the thick clouds rolled in the other day.
The marsh behind Haddam Meadows Connecticut.
Last week I published an image of the Willamantic Reservoir. Here are four additional photographs taken during that visit.
The ‘top down’ view gives everything a different perspective.
I doubt this is clear after snow falls, but it might be worth checking on.
Haddam Meadows, along the Connecticut River, has several trails we had never walked. One runs through a marsh ultimately crossing these old tracks.
There are some tracks along the river that are not used on a regular basis, one Middletown track is in use once a week. This might be part of that line, or perhaps the Valley Railroad has rights to them.
