NOVEMBER ON WHITINS POND

Whitins Pond November

Whitins Pond, November 2014

Just when I thought the glorious fall was over for good and all, we had yet one perfect afternoon in mid November. The pond is full again. The rains came and filled it.

Houses on Whitins Pond, almost twilight

While the swans have been absent, mallards seem to be everywhere. Maybe they are taking advantage of the absence of the swans to take over that piece of pond. They were too far for me to photograph, but I could see them. It’s nice to see birds again.

REFLECTIONS ON THE POND

When the water is still and the sun is bright, a pond or lake can be a mirror. Here is the world in mid-November, upside down. With ripples.

OCTOBER COMING HOME

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #21 It was as if we spent all of October in the car. It’s not true, of course. We spent most of October on the ground, somewhere in New England.

WATER BIRDS AT LACKEY DAM

Kaity tells me she’s seen a lot of swans, but not in the usual places. I assume they went to deeper water. Before the rain started in October, you could walk across […]

NEVERENDING AUTUMN – GARRY ARMSTRONG

Not only has this been a particularly beautiful Autumn, but it has lasted longer than any in my memory. It started in September … earlier than normal … and it has not quite left us yet. On our way back from the mall in Millbury, we left Route 146 via Lackey Dam road and when […]

LEAVES AND BARK – CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bark or Leaves Here’s a subject I can wrap my head around. I live in the woods. Leaves and trees surround me … so it should be no surprise that I have a lot of pictures of leaves and trees — bark, as it were.
