abstractinblackandwhite.jpgAbstract in black & white13 viewsActually a color image, this high contrast shot was made in late morning on an overcast June day this summer2 commentsEd Hodgson

abstractingreen~0.jpgAbstract in Green8 viewsIn July, with abundant foliage overhead, the flow over the lip of the little dam presented its ever changing reflections in verdant splendor.2 commentsEd Hodgson
accomplished.jpg
accomplished.jpgMission Accomplished11 viewsThe little beaver dam I have been watching evolve through the winter was complete and about 18 inches high yesterday afternoon. It can go about a foot higher in its current location without growing a whole lot more in width, so I kind of expect more work on it in the days ahead.2 commentsEd Hodgson

AmericanDream.jpgAmerican Dream5 viewsHere's another old timer I found in an appealing setting during our cruise night field trip2 commentsEd Hodgson
anotherstory.jpg
anotherstory.jpgAnother story in the snow11 viewsThe other day, I found the marsh along the rail trail cold and still with a heavy cover of snow, but i did find this trace winding across the frozen marsh. I couldn't see the end of this story and the plot looks twisted. Good food for the imagination, I think.2 commentsEd Hodgson
appleblossoms.jpg
appleblossoms.jpgApple Blossom Time4 viewsThere is a little apple tree near one end of the beaver dam that blooms beautifully in early spring each year. This year I tried to get a few photos that put the bloom in context. Here's one I kind of like.Ed Hodgson
arrowhead.jpg
arrowhead.jpgBroad Leaved Arrowhead22 viewsI saw this in the marsh along Quarry Road in Granby the otehr day when I stopped to look at some cardinal flowers blooming there.2 commentsEd Hodgson
ashyclubtail.jpg
ashyclubtail.jpgAshy Clubtail Dragonfly on Rhododendron Blossoms8 viewsWhile most of the early dragonflies zoomed around frantically and eluded my attempts at photography, this mellow fellow took time to smell the flowers and posed nicely for me on our rhododendron bushes.Ed Hodgson
Attroutpond.jpg
Attroutpond.jpgFrom the dragon's lair7 viewsThere were some lovely water lily blossoms at trout pond over the last few days that prompted some photo experimentation. This shot of a Slaty Skimmer with water lily background is one result.Ed Hodgson
baltimoreoriole.jpg
baltimoreoriole.jpgBaltimore Oriole by Salmon Brook7 viewsI've been seeing and hearing quite a few of these jaunty fellows lately and thought this one who surprised me by the brook should be shared.Ed Hodgson
barkhamsteadresAMclouds.jpg
barkhamsteadresAMclouds.jpgBarhamstead Reservoir - Early Morning Clouds12 viewsWith both my Mother and Mother-In-Law having health problems in NJ, I've been driving by the reservoir a lot lately. It got me thinking about this early morning flight when the first light lit up the clouds the reservoir created overnight so nicely.2 commentsEd Hodgson
beaverdive.jpg
beaverdive.jpgDive! Dive!6 viewsWhile at Trout Pond in McLean the other day, I watched a beaver enter the water off the nearest island in the pond and proceed to swim around in the pond for some time alternating intervals of quiet swimming with splashing dives, each accompanied by a loud tail smack. I took a number of photos, but was unsatisfied with any of them taken alone as representing the event well so tried this composite of two.Ed Hodgson
beaverpond.jpg
beaverpond.jpgThe beaver pond on Salmon Brook7 viewsStill water now backs up from the beaver dam creating a pond where dragonflies patrol and fish break the surface to feed.Ed Hodgson
beforeitbrokeJune15.jpg
beforeitbrokeJune15.jpgBeaver Dam before it failed, June, 20158 viewsWith strong flow in the brook, the beaver dam near Canal Street created a nice little water fall in Salmon Brook before its catastrophic failure a couple of weeks later.Ed Hodgson
behindbars.jpg
behindbars.jpgBehind Bars5 viewsI was working on photos of the Giant Lobelia and brown -eyed Susans in my wife's garden because I liked the color contrasts. When I sized up this approach I was struck by the appearance of a crowded detention cell and thought it was worth a shot. Ed Hodgson
BisselBrookJune.jpg
BisselBrookJune.jpgBissel Brook in June10 viewsWhen I stopped here the other day as i occasionally do, extreme contrast between the sunlit woods above the falls and the shaded area below demanded HDR to create a decent image so I thought it would be worth a try. This is the result I like best so far. Comments and suggestions are invited. 6 commentsEd Hodgson
bittersweetembrace.jpg
bittersweetembrace.jpgBittersweet Embrace8 viewsJust something I saw earlier this month and thought could make an evocative image.Ed Hodgson
bloodroot.jpg
bloodroot.jpgFirst Bloodroot of the season6 viewsThese bloodroot caught me by surprise as I was cleaning up in the gardens yesterday. I really wasn't expecting to see any in our yard this soon.2 commentsEd Hodgson
bluebird116.jpg
bluebird116.jpgWinter Bluebird 20168 viewsLast month I spotted this fellow visiting our birdbath one morning. He was cooperative enough to pause in our maple tree as he finished his visit so I was able to capture a few images. Exposure was a bit of a challenge as he was strongly backlit and our sunroom windows made fill flash a bad option, but between what I could do with the camera ans a bit of post processing, I don't think this worked out too badly.Ed Hodgson
bluebird2.jpg
bluebird2.jpgThe Bluebird in May7 viewsOn an afternoon walk in the McLean refuge today, I was delighted to hear this fellow singing in a tree near the entrance from 10-202 and to get a decent look at him. Bluebirds are always a special treat to me.Ed Hodgson
borage.jpg
borage.jpgBorage7 viewsMy wife has a number of borage plants growing in her herb garden this summer. We find their clusters of sky blue flowers a real treat and this blossom that had fallen onto one of the borage leaves especially caught my eye and begged for a photograph.2 commentsEd Hodgson
buckstops.jpg
buckstops.jpgThe Buck Stops Here14 viewsActually, the subject of this image is the barn door hinge (also off level).2 commentsEd Hodgson
buttonbush.jpg
buttonbush.jpgButtonbush4 viewsI thought this buttonbush blossom was particularly well set off for a photograph by its isolation against this dark green leaf.2 commentsEd Hodgson
Buzzshot.jpg
Buzzshot.jpgBuzz lines up a shot6 viewsFor those who didn't make it, here's a club member hard at work. It's easy to see in this photo, some of the photographic challenges that arose from so many cars and people in a small area at this venue.Ed Hodgson
BvrdamOct.jpg
BvrdamOct.jpgBeaver dam on Salmon Brook9 viewsI thought the water flow and sunlight at this spot near Canal Street were particularly nice this morning.2 commentsEd Hodgson
calicopennant.jpg
calicopennant.jpgCalico Pennant Dragonfly5 viewsThis one was also by Trout Pond in McLean refuge. I used a fill flash to bring out the colors on his wings and thorax and the smallest aperture my lense offers to get enough depth of field to encompass his wingspan and the flowers where he was perched. Shooting against the pond at a shallow angle eliminated issues with distracting background detail.Ed Hodgson
canadadarner.jpg
canadadarner.jpgCanada Darner Dragonfly9 viewsBy the soccer field in Salmon Brook Park. I'm not quite certain in the ID on this one and would welcome confirmation or correction.2 commentsEd Hodgson
Cardinalflower.jpg
Cardinalflower.jpgCardinal Flower 201510 viewsThe cardinal flowers are indeed blooming now, but not along Quarry Road where we found them last year. This was along the bike path going north from Suffield to Southwick. There are quite a few there.1 commentsEd Hodgson
Cardinalflower2017.jpg
Cardinalflower2017.jpgSeptember Surprise10 viewsI was surprised while walking along the rail trail north from Suffield last week to find these cardinal flowers still blooming by a little beaver dam. I thought it made a nice scene.1 commentsEd Hodgson
cardinalmay.jpg
cardinalmay.jpgCardinal - May morning mist10 viewsI spotted this handsome fellow while exploring along Salmon Brook at the park on a somewhat misty morning not too long ago. I like the soft background that resulted from the mist and limited depth of field.Ed Hodgson
