Dreary Snowy Egret

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.

Looking Down On Willamantic Reservoir

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.

Railroad Tracks On The Trail

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.
