Puddles of Sky

Sunday afternoon, I made a right at the end of our driveway and walked up the un-maintained section of Brimstone Corner Road.

My plan was to make photographs of the yellow foliage (mainly beech) of the forest understory.

However, I got distracted by the reflections in the puddles left over from last week’s rain.

Despite the distraction, I did make a few photographs of the foliage along the way.

About a mile up Brimstone Corner Road from the house, one comes to a “T” intersection that is actually in Hancock; this intersection is “Brimstone Corner”. A small stream is carried under the road here in a stone culvert that I would guess to be somewhere between 150 and 200 years old.

I have been meaning to try to photograph this culvert and made a first attempt on this trip.

  1. Phew! i clicked on the wrong link and was brought into a plethora (love fitting that word in) of folders of your images. i was having a hard time remembering which i wanted to offer a comment or not. This is much more manageable! As for those barn questions, i did like the tighter one as the colors in the reflection were more appreciated. And, the decision between the two stone walls – the second one has a good leading line (greater if you flipped it).

    You really need to get a job, too much time on your hands – puddles, political signs, etc. Is there anything you haven’t shot in the area. I’m guessing the neighbors head for closed doors and pull their curtains when they see you with a camera in the area 🙂

    As for the puddles, I like a tighter crop around the first one. The blues are beautiful but are offset by the muck and mire around it. And, sky puddle #4 has great color in it.
