I know, “Bore me to tears.”

But it’s what’s happening here, and with camera in hand, it’s what I got.

Reed’s Brook in Conway, just after the recent snowfall:

Sumacs surrounded by Japanese knot weed:

…and a patch of sunlight tumbling across the landscape, here illuminating a swath of forest over the river and across the railroad tracks:

So winter begins.  Expect more of this in the coming weeks and months.

Took a ride down to Hadley today on a Photographic Damage Control Mission (more on that soon) and, as is my wont, cruised the back roads with camera in hand.

I found myself in the agrarian hill town of Conway, somewhat down-river from my usual haunts, but nonetheless a place which is pictorially representative of life here in Southern New England.

I crossed the wood-planked bridge at Bardwell’s Ferry on the Deerfield River, a very cool pseudo-suspension bridge with hinged steel tension members in place of cables:

…and entered a world of wood lots and sugar houses, farms and fields

And this, an artist’s studio in an old barn on the banks of Reed’s Brook:

I took this shot from a bridge which I helped build a couple of years ago.

All in all, a nice little town in the highlands outside of The People’s Republic of Northampton.
