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.

Been slackin’ lately, but here are a few bones from the past week, in case you’re looking for something to gnaw.

A dogwood on the Deerfield:

A barnscape:

A woodfish blowing stone bubbles:

wood fish, rock bubbles

There’s no tellin’ what you’ll find in these hills.

Totally Random Shots. November 22, 2008

Totally.

Like, these aren’t all even from the same season.

I’d guess that that qualifies as random.

Rose Hips in Autumn:

A Goddam Golf Course:

I already miss that, the green, the smell of it, the softness of the grass.

I need to shift gears, ’cause it’ll be a while before it smells like that again.  Now it’ll bite, pinch my nose and slow my lungs.  Winter is coming, and it’s time to do things differently.

…But hey, Random Shots!

How random is this –

Through A Mirror:

That one takes a little thought, and perhaps a leap of faith.

Did I mention these were random?

A cool sky:

tumultuous-small

Kind of an Eraser Head sky.

“Where’s your wife?”

That’s a pretty obscure reference, I know, but Pagan will get it.

And lastly, a lone apple, glowering in a November sunset:

And That’s That.

I go nowhere without my camera. And sometimes I get to use it.

Things I’ve seen on my way home from work:

Autumn colors –

The Chickley River:

A newt, wet with rain and looking for a mate:

And here’s a shot for the peeps who need a jolt of humanity in their pix:

These days, “Nature Photography” needs to encompass the reality of our effect on the land, so I’m loosening somewhat my definition of “nature photography”  to include stuff like this.
