Harrisville Details

Yesterday morning I picked up my last load of compost for the season. This final load was destined for Joan’s cousin Suzy who lives near our abode. Since I had no fixed schedule, I meandered vaguely in the direction of home. Of course, I had my camera with me.

As I drove, I noticed the nice texture (at least in some directions) in the clouds and went in search of a foreground for the interesting clouds. I ended up at Halfmoon Pond in Hancock, near the Harrisville border (see the first photo, below). The textured clouds did not last long. The overcast built steadily and it began to drizzle.

Knowing that Joan had to make a trip to Harrisville Designs, and with the lunchtime approaching, I called Joan and arranged to meet her at the General Store for lunch. After lunch Joan headed to the yarn pushers for what she needed and I wandered about the village to make photographs.

Harrisville, NH is a quaint, well preserved old mill town. It is among my favorite places to make photos. Since the weather was not suitable for grand landscapes (think low, thick overcast and intermittent drizzle), I concentrated on the details.

It was almost 5PM before I got the compost delivered.

Two dirt roads cross in an out of the way corner of Hancock, NH.

A light rain falls.

So much photographic possibility.

March

Filed under: Landscapes — Tags: , — Frank @ 11:00 PM

March… that awkward in between month. Thus far, winter is still ahead.

However, the sap is running well. It looks to be a good year for sugaring.

From yesterday’s walk down the ‘civilized’ section of our road:

Brimstone Corner Road Enumerated

This is what I noticed on my daily walk on the “civilized” section of our road this afternoon.

Why I had never seen this before? Hmmm!

Between The Snows

Filed under: Landscapes,Monadnock Region,Winter — Tags: , , — Frank @ 10:00 PM

We had our first significant snow (three or four inches) of the season last Saturday/Sunday night. It snowed again (a similar amount) on Tuesday.

On Monday, between the snows, I took my camera along for my daily walk.

Thursday Walk — Details

Filed under: Landscapes,November — Tags: , , — Frank @ 11:30 AM

Last Thursday I carried my camera while I took my daily walk.

The sun was low in the western sky. It dipped below the ridge about a half hour before astronomical sun set; I was only half way back to the house on the return leg.

I seem to have had an eye for details this day.

New Ice, Early Snow

Filed under: Landscapes,Monadnock Region — Tags: , — Frank @ 10:00 PM

Last Sunday (the 12th of November), after a stretch of cold nights (as low as 10 deg F), the north end of Gregg lake froze solid.

Tuesday morning we awoke to the second significant snow fall of the season. Winter is here!

Tuesday afternoon, I took my camera along on my daily walk.

Today (Friday), the ice is mostly gone and the snow is completely gone. In between we had a few days nearly steady temperatures (mid 30’s F both night and day) including a day of nice cold rain. Yuck!

2017 Road Trip — River Bottom Homestead

Filed under: Landscapes — Tags: , — Frank @ 9:30 PM

Within the CW Russell NWR, a short but muddy walk from the road, lies the remains of an old Missouri River homestead.

Two generations of log cabin are present… an older wood chinked structure and a newer cement chinked structure. The older structure once had a sod roof. The newer structure was used recently enough that it once had electricity.

There are also the remains of a number of outbuildings (barns and sheds) as well as remnants of fences and corrals.

Stonewall Farm

Filed under: Early Fall,Landscapes,Monadnock Region,Summer — Tags: , — Frank @ 1:30 PM

Yesterday afternoon I spent some time at the Stonewall Farm an agricultural education center (among other things) in Keene, NH. I took a walk on their extensive trail network, but I found many things to photograph right near their buildings.

After leaving the farm, I meandered toward Brattleborough and discovered a new (to me) meetinghouse, the Park Hill Meetinghouse in Westmoreland, NH. I’ll certainly be heading back here in the light of November and hunting for the ‘perfect’ sky.

Star Island – May 2017

Filed under: Birds,Landscapes,Spring,Wildlife — Tags: , , — Frank @ 11:30 PM

I spent this past Friday and Saturday on Star Island, one of the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. The trip (which is organized by Eric Masterson) was timed to coincide with the spring migration of birds.

Joan and I went on this trip back in 2014 (see this post for birds and this one for landscapes); this year I went by myself as Joan was occupied with editing the June issue of the Antrim Limrik.

The birding was not as spectacular this year as it was in 2014 but I had a good time anyway. One can always find something to photograph if you spend time looking carefully.
