It rained all day today, not hard, but enough to keep the views at bay and my camera in its case.
Then, approaching home, it lightened up a bit and as I drove along the Deerfield river a thick fog came rolling down the valley. I’d been waiting for a fog with a venue in mind for a photograph, so I ducked into the East Charlemont boat ramp to turn around, and stumbled onto a pair of geese gliding silently out of view:
I hustled down to Gardner Falls, actually a dam downstream from the village of Shelburne falls; I wanted to set up below the dam, not much above the upstream water level, and see what that looked like in fog. As the fog bank rounded the bend like the ghost of a great snake, it looked like this:
This was just a “test shot,” but this place has potential; I can see getting there before sunrise to catch sky reflections, or keeping an eye on it when the Autumn colors come in.
At any rate, I’ll certainly be back.
