Massapoag Trail   Leave a comment

Snowy day. Didn’t feel like driving, so explored a part of the Massapoag Trail I really should have spent more time in until now, from Lake Massapoag onwards.

Low light, and the nature of snowy woods, means that a lot of the photos worked best in black and white.

A fox in the backyard; a cardinal photo, taken while trying out a new lens.

Devil’s Brook on Christmas   4 comments

Lots and lots of rain, which means that Devil’s Brook was absolutely gushing. The stream photos depend very sensitively on the time of exposure: if you take a very short exposure, the action is frozen. If you take a long exposure, all the action is smoothed away and you get a tranquil effect. The problem, of course, is that this stream did not seem tranquil — it was frisky and energetic. I tried to explore exposure times that demonstrated this.

Several droplet photos, but the light was not great and I can’t get the noise reduction right. I’ll keep working on that, but I suspect these photos aren’t going to be much better even under smarter processing.

Frost on our front lawn. I lay down and caught it backlit by the morning sun.

I think that if I’d seen it a little earlier in the morning, it would have looked better.

Northwest Trail, Borderland State Park   Leave a comment

First, another visitor to the house. I think it’s Steatoda borealis, rather than Steatoda grossa, but am not certain.
