Bellows Falls in HDR-Trip #2

I have been itching to get back down to Bellows Falls because I know I have only seen the tip of the iceberg (photography wise). The kids and I spent most of the day there. First we climbed Fall Mtn. for a perfect view of the city. We then ventured down to the river to talk to the fisherman just below the dam. They have been catching walleye, pike, and rainbow trout. We then ventured across the river to Bellow Falls and checked out the old mill buildings and bridges. We met a family who grew up in Walpole, but now live in Connecticut. He told me stories of climbing along the river below the bridge when he was a kid. Overall a great day exploring and of course taking pictures. Most of these shots are in HDR taken with multiple exposures and tripod. Enjoy!

OK, Plum Island Pictures With No Birds!

Here are some shots of Plum Island and the Newburyport, MA with no wildlife. There were some beautiful relaxing sunsets! The fireplace was the center piece of our rental.

The USS Albacore Submarine Museum

A great visit to the USS Albacore Museum. We arrived early and had the sub to ourselves. It is very “hands-on”.  The other sub that I visited had almost everything blocked off. There was also nice narrative boxes along the way explaining things with stories. The periscope even worked!
