Church Spire, New Preston, Conn.

Today’s rain and breaking sun offered dramatic skies and magical light. The white spire viewed from the hill in New Preston had caught my eye before, but this time the bare branches and heavy sky provided the right setting and mood.

Summer Goodbye

Photo copyright 2017 by Susan Reinberg

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 entitled “Don’t Fence Me In” 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.

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.
