Summer Goodbye

The glaring sunlight shimmered on the water at Compo Beach in Westport, Conn., on this torrid autumn day. The cloud bank clinging to the horizon and masking Long Island across the sound, was singular enough to make me want to capture the scene.

View from the Bridge, Olivebridge, N.Y.

The undulating hills viewed from this spot overlooking the Ashokan Reservoir calls me to the water’s edge once again. Photographing toward the light with the sun just out of the camera frame washes the scene in a monotone.

Fence Line, Sharon, Conn.

A fence line against a perfect summer sky. How could I resist walking up the field to capture the simple composition. My friend Marc had kindly parked along the road so I could make the shot. As usual, he had my back (see his photo of the moment at his blog: marcisolda.wordpress.com )

Summer Field, New Milford, Conn.

Wild and delicate Queen Anne’s Lace abounds along the roadside here in summer. And though a stunning vista beckoned me on a hilltop, my takeaway image for the day was this tree in a quiet field across the way.

No lifeguards on duty. Just us seagulls.

Rain on Wolf Pit Mountain, Bridgewater, Conn.

The pullover along Route 67 is a popular place to stop in all kinds of weather, and I always check the view when I drive by. This day it was raining and so I wanted to make some rain pictures, of course.  I have to thank Marc Isolda, who drove out to the Bridgewater Overlook so we could capture the view.

Red Barn, July 1, Roxbury, Conn.

The billowing clouds on this first day of July warranted a trip to rephotograph the red barn that I depicted on New Year’s Day. Though the light was high overhead this time, the summer day made up for it.

Ladies Who Lunch, Torrington, Conn.

This combination restaurant and antiques gallery harkens back to those times when going out to lunch meant putting on a hat, gloves and pearls and going downtown to meet your friends.  I wonder who they were talking about today.

Red Barn, Misty Hills, Sherman, Conn.

The ivy-covered red barn and the remnants of the fallen down silo in the grass have often prompted me to photograph at this spot, but I was never quite happy with the results. Today I was finally satisfied that I might just have something this time.

George, who owns the beautiful property called Hollister House and the lovingly cultivated English garden there, says daffodils signal the first joyful blooming of spring. He favors them, calling them “generous.” He is generous too, opening his garden to visitors on spring and summer weekends. You can find out about garden tours, hours and other events at the Hollister House website.
