Doane’s Falls


Yesterday, I explored Doane’s Falls, a series of five waterfalls along a brook in Royalston, Massachusetts. It is part of the state parks system. Trails bring you along the falls and into hiking trails that eventually lead to a reservoir and dam. My wife and I had planned to explore some waterfalls when I returned from Central America last summer, but I came back to a drought. We’ve had some good spring rain to feed these falls.

Old Sturbridge Village in Winter – Part II


This is the other gallery of images that I made when we visited Old Sturbridge Village a couple of weeks ago. With warmer temperatures and some rain, the snow is quickly melting. We may finally get some spring image in a week or two.

The second half of the door images from Old Sturbridge Village in Central Massachusetts. It is a beautiful place to visit in any season.

Doors of Old Sturbridge Village – Part 1

Last weekend we went out to Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum set in the 1830s. I made a series of images of doors there and thought I would show them today because there is a tradition of showing doors on Thursdays.

What a Difference A Week Makes

A week ago, I was out on the ice making photos of the fishing derby. After a week of warm temperatures, including 70F/20C degree days, all of those ice fishing shacks are off the lake and my wife and I took our bikes for a ride on Plum Island. Plum Island is a barrier island on the Massachusetts coast. Half has high-end beach shacks and the other half is a wildlife refuge. We road through both and enjoyed a picnic lunch by the sea.
