Down By The River… February 21, 2011

…I shot my camera.  Got this photo of trees reflecting in the Connecticut up at the Montague/Sunderland line:

…and this one, of a New Age Tobacco Barn in Hatfield at sunset:

Both of these venues have potential for some interesting photographs, and will bear watching through the seasons and in various weather.

I really love the picture of the river. Really, gorgeous.

I do like the barn also, very, very nice; and you’re right, both sites deserve going back to.

Eileen, thanks. Spring’s coming, and I’m going to keep my eye on these spots as things start to pop.

Gawd, these are gorgeous! I was just looking through a file of pics I took of tobacco barns down in Hadley and they are crap, compared to these.

Where did you trample through to get to the artsy-fartsy barn? 🙂

A hug,

Hi Gina 🙂

That barn is in Hatfield, on the road which runs down the west bank of the Connecticut between Mt. Sugarloaf on the north end and Hatfield center on the south. Approach it in this direction, otherwise it’s easy to miss!

The river view is on the east side of the river, right at the Montague/Sunderland line. I forget the name of the road, but it cuts off of Route 47 and hooks up to Greenfield Road on the north end.

Good luck!

Wow! The pictures are just stunning and I could stare at the skies in each photo all day. Was the second picture was taken at sunset or sunrise?

Oops, question answered – thanks.

That is great thank you for wasting your time and mine. When someone on the left decides to talk about something other than how great Free Trade is and how it wasn’t designed to enrich the wealthy wake me up…

I’ll just comment on this one because it’s your most recent post. All these photos are magnificent. I’ve spent the past 12 years in Asia, which has some lovely scenery, but I’ve spent them in the most urban (nasty) parts because that’s where the work is. Thank you for reminding me of nature’s beauty.

Well, thank you to you new commentors (except for Nix, who appears to be “in the wrong pew.” Sorry, Nix – I’m a “leftie,” but but I wasn’t the source or inspiration for your Thought Salad.)

If any of you new folks get back here, I’m curious about how you found me. There’s such a spike in my page views that I suspect I’ve been linked-to somewhere, and I’d like to thank whoever’s responsible!

Here’s the link that brought us here to your site: crooks and liars.

It’s listed under “Bonus Track”.

Have fun!

Kiweagle, thanks. C&L has so many contributors and moves along so quickly that it can be hard to keep up with it all, and I missed the link first time through!

If that river was frozen it perfectly catches the mood of my favorite Kliban painting. Apologies that the only easy link is to a commercial site.
