Hump-Day Dump! June 16, 2010

Here ’tis, the proverbial photo-dump.

You know, the stuff which doesn’t tell a story, but which you hate to delete without giving it its moment in the sun.

Dark blue columbines along the road in Savoy:

Orange hawkweed at a cemetery in upper Windsor:

Yellow Flag irises in a beaver swamp in Shelburne:

…and Blue Flag irises in a meadow, these back in Windsor, and set against a field of Ragged Robin and Buttercups:

The weather’s been un-June-like, rainy and cool.  Here the mists rise over a field in Charlemont:

I know, it’s grainy, but it’s a hand-held shot on a dimly lit evening, and consequently at a stupid high ISO.

And a bit later, a sunset as the clouds blew away:

Not a calendar shot, but perhaps worth sharing before I recycle it.

Hope your week is going well as we crest this thing and set our sights on sliding down the other side.

wow man amazing shots, keep them coming! Thanks also for my few shots of glory! I gotta learn how to relax while climbing!Love the flower pix. Quite mesmerizing.

Awesome, as ever. Story photos are fun, but photos on their own are also wonderful. Was it Phillip Freneau who wrote: “Tell them, dear, if eyes were made for seeing/ Then beauty is its own excuse for being”?

I’ve been sitting here scanning the pictures and reading again. Your work is always sheer relaxation for me. The pond photograph was lovely simply as a captured moment in time and space. The ice climb was both thrilling and chilling 🙂

ps – We’re moving to the Maritimes in September. Your photographs of western Mass. went a long way to calming my silly fears of winter.

(also, for some Southern Appalachian photography, check out this l’il gem I found)

Hi, Ralph

Bobbie of Almost There passed away. 😦 So saddened me.

Gina, I’m so sad to hear that – being a Bad Reader, I wasn’t aware she was at that place in her life.

I went to her blog and left a message for here daughter; apparently Bobbie’s passing wasn’t sudden or unexpected, but timely and her own preferred option. What could be better than to live to be old and pass on with your loving children around you?

Thanks for letting me (us) know.
