While waiting for my car to be repaired (again!) I wandered out behind my mechanic’s place to a big Sycamore tree and took this picture:

This is along the banks of the Deerfield river, and the shoreline here was drastically changed by Tropical Storm Irene, leaving water-worn cobbles of every size and description where grassy banks used to be:

That trio of stones may have been arranged by a neighborhood kid, as they’re right in the central village.

I took my newly nimble steed for a test drive, finding little of interest photographically until I passed through upper Cummington at the end of the day and stopped for this lone maple, which I thought would look nice as a black and white photograph:

So, a light day of posting here at LBT.

And so it goes, and so it goes…

Very nice studies! I especially love the perspective in the sycamore shot.

Photo number 3 rocks out loud. Or rather very quietly.

The maple looks so pristine in that soft light. Nice work.

Susan, thanks. Now that I’ve made its acquaintance I’m looking forward to visiting it throughout the seasons. I suspect it has a lot to say.
