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.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
AmericanLady.jpgAmerican Lady Butterfly6 viewsSince it was a topic of some discussion at teh meeting last night, I figured I'd post a couple of images that clearly show the principal visual difference between American Lady and Painted Lady Butterflies. Note especially the underside of the hind wings.Ed Hodgson
appleblossoms.jpgApple Blossom Time5 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
Attroutpond.jpgFrom the dragon's lair8 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.jpgBaltimore Oriole by Salmon Brook8 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
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
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.jpgBehind Bars6 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.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.jpgBittersweet Embrace8 viewsJust something I saw earlier this month and thought could make an evocative image.Ed Hodgson
bluebird116.jpgWinter Bluebird 20169 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.jpgThe Bluebird in May8 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.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
congrats16.jpgCongratulations to our benefactors7 viewsHere is photo evidence of the triumphant performance by this year's record setting photographers extraordinaire. Well done ladies!Ed Hodgson
conversation.jpgGood Conversation14 viewsThe club's photos sparked a lot of good conversation.Ed Hodgson
crowd.jpgA good crowd16 viewsThe artists' reception Friday night drew a good crowd. The room was packed most of the evening.Ed Hodgson
Crsms2016.jpgChristmas Greetings 20169 viewsA bountiful Christmas Eve at our house Last Year wish wishes for many blessings for all of you this Christmas and through the year aheadEd Hodgson
daisies.jpgDaisies6 viewsWe're getting a particularly nice bloom out of my wife's Shasta Daisies this summer so i figured i'd try to take advantage of it.Ed Hodgson
damselsdelight.jpgDamsel's Delight15 viewsI caught this damselfly heading for a water lily blossom on Spring Pond in the McLean game refuge the other day and thought it made a nice image despite some extraneous matter in the water. I'm considering editing some of the distracting material out - opinions?3 commentsEd Hodgson
disaster.jpgDisaster!10 viewsThe drama at the little Beaver dam on Salmon Brook has a new chapter. Just over a month ago when we returned from Cape Cod, I found this scene. The beaver dam had washed out and large pieces of it were piled haphazardly on rocks downstream from where the dam had stood.Ed Hodgson
disaster2.jpgDisaster - the dam site13 viewsWhere the dam had stood, the stream bed was scoured clear down to the rocks that had created a small riffle there before the beaver began their work. The pond was gone and muddy bottoms exposed in the areas that had been flooded as the dam grew.Ed Hodgson
DorrieWB.jpgDorrie Makes a Point5 viewsA silhouette was the best I could manage in that spot.Ed Hodgson
Dorrie_Arnold__DSC2388-Pano-Edit.jpgAfter sunrise in Granby8 viewsPanorama of nine vertical images of New Year's Eve morning with valley fog and icy trees 1 commentsDorrie Arnold
Easterntailedblue.jpgEastern Tailed Blue Buttterfly16 viewsI particularly liked this little guy I saw in the McLean Refuge today and appreciated his cooperative attitude in perching on the goldenrod to set off his lovely blue color.2 commentsEd Hodgson
endofstory.jpgThe end of the story?9 viewsSomeone there is that does not like a dam ..... late in June, I found someone had breached the beaver dam in two places, but the beaver repaired those quickly, then in early July, I returned to find this - the dam destroyed and its materials piled on the banks of the stream. No sign of rebuilding yet, so I guess I have to find a new spot to observe and photograph.Ed Hodgson
EssexSkipper.jpg7 viewsEssex Skipper, Granby, CT - June, 2017Ed Hodgson
eveningstorm1.jpgEvening Storm6 viewsLast evening's storm produced a great show at our house as it wound down that has proved quite difficult to capture in a photo. After quite a bit of work on the shots i grabbed from our front porch (needed shelter from the continuing rain), I think i'm getting close in this image. What we saw was an otherworldly glow in the sky reflected in the blossoms in my wife's front garden so they glowed and popped out from the surrounding foliage. Hopefully this shows a little of that.1 commentsEd Hodgson
eveningstorm2.jpgEvening Storm - Take 23 viewsI realized I was thrown off by a monitor calibration issue on the first attempt at this so have reworked it to get something closer to what I intended here.Ed Hodgson
