I can imagine that all manner of beasts might live within the hollow.

Don’t Fence Me In

Photo copyright 2017 by Marc Isolda

A fellow photographer saw the fence line before I did and I stayed in the car. Still I had to get in my two cents worth — a sort of homage to Andrew Wyeth. The flow of white in the breeze seemed to emulate the clouds above the field. (You can see Susan’s photo at her blog at susanreinberg.wordpress.com )

I drove by at sunset to see what I might find looking out over Lake Waramaug. Of course the moment was right.

Another Sunset , Bridgewater, Conn.

I knew when I saw the clouds coming in that there would be an opening and they would light up after the sun went down. All I needed to do was stand in one of my favorite spots overlooking the hills of Bridgewater, and the fiery wings of victory appeared.

Reflections on a Winter Day, Woodbury, Conn.

Looking down from a small bridge, I couldn’t resist making an image of a barren winter tree reflected in the ice-edged pond, with the sun burning through the clouds above, turning the world upside down.

Windswept, Southbury, Conn.

I was fascinated by the repetition of rooftop vents on this abandoned cow barn and the staunch, vine-covered chimney to the left. The decorative vent on the heating plant in the rear gave a churchlike aspect on this windswept winter day.

Out in the early morning looking for something to photograph, I saw there was fog in the valley and I figured the light would be nice on the lake. When I got there, this image was there to greet meet.

There’s Nothing Wrong With Your Television Set

The zigzags on the stairway are for real. (For those who remember “The Outer Limits”: “Don’t adjust your vertical, don’t adjust your horizontal. For the next hour we will control all that you see and hear.”)

Will I Ever Fly Again?

I felt sorry for the vintage planes in their snow-dusted graveyard on airport hill in Roxbury, Conn. Wheels sunk in the ground, they will never again know the thrill of flying through the clouds or feel the heat of the sun’s rays through their canopies.

A drive by the lake on a warm November evening rewarded me with this magical sunset.
