Lunar Eclipse

The lunar eclipse was an unusual event and we had the perfect conditions for viewing and taking pictures with clear skies and it happened at a reasonable hour.

This shot is a practice shot that I took the night before.

The next three shots were taken during the night of the eclipse. The first shot was taken at 8:49, the second shot at 9:22, and the third shot at 10:09.

This shot is a combination of the first and last shot and combined in Photoshop.

Photowalking the Bicknell Brook

Brent and I joined the QUACC photo walk at Bicknell Brook (Collette Trail) on Sunday. The water was running a little low, but we still got a few good shots in and had a good time.

Dragonflies at the Quarry

A short hike from Mount Support  Road can get you to a very unique spot that is great for exploring. An old abandoned quarry that looks like the stone was never used. The trail starts on the top of Dartmouth Ave. There are two trails either Bruce Lee (more challenging) or Get Yer Goat. Both will take you to the top. Get Yer Goat intersects with the old access Road for a quicker accent, but very steep and technical. I would recommend taking Get Yer Goat to Quarry Direct, then come back down Bruce Lee. There are some great rock formations along the way, especially along the old access Road and Bruce Lee. Once at the top, let the exploring begin…but be careful.

Farnum Five.5 Trail Race 2015

This was the third year that I have taken pictures of the Farnum Five.5 but this year I had my son, the budding young photographer, to keep me company. He also took some great shots. Here are a few. All the images can be found here.

Too Hot For Apple Picking

We made our annual trek to Riverview Farm for some apple picking, but boy was it hot! Our visit was short, but the kids picked 20 lbs. of apples in no-time. I did have time for a few shots. I was glad to get a nice shot of a damsel fly.
