Half-Cut Field

The first haying is underway around here, and this half-cut field caught my eye in the late afternoon light. If you take a close look, you might note this year’s resident perched atop the wren house in the foreground. The black-and-white version also intrigues me. You can decide.

Great Egret in Flight

This egret gave me the opportunity to get close to it before taking off. It made a direct pass in front of me as I panned to capture the image you see here.

I am trying my hand at infrared photography. I have seen the light.

Wheezie — July 20, 2003 – February 5, 2018

It  is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of my longtime friend and companion, Wheezie, a Persian cat who gave me her unconditional devotion and who was a great comfort to me through good times and bad. She would wait at the top of the stairs to greet me and would let me know with a loud meow if I was out too long. She needed me as much as I needed her. She will be sorely missed. She truly was the Light Within.

Down the hill behind the old cemetery in Bridgewater, this quiet pond on a land preserve offers a peaceful walk to residents and a moment to ponder.

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.
