A new destination found! Even in a small state like Massachusetts, there seems to be a near endless supply of interesting places to discover. Of course also a matter of how much drive time I'm up for... especially when it comes to central and western MA... pure traffic hell. This one was a short 45 minute run in Central MA... a park full of abstract sculptures all around the grounds and a small museum with abstract paintings. Personally, the sculptures were more my thing, so I spent the majority of my day out shooting those.
This is actually a very delayed entry... went here in late April and completely forgot to load the shots onto the site. Shot my first wedding here, so always nice to come back for a relaxing stroll through the butterfly garden. Also wanted to test out a close up filter I recently acquired, so here we go!
One more Spring run of birding at my favorite little local hotspot. I have some new destinations in mind to shoot this season, but some don't open til after Memorial Day... some I prefer nicer weather, so filling time with a little birding locally. Not too much out this run, but caught a few nice shots in the mix.
Slowly but surely the warm season is starting to kick in. I got one random nice Thursday with nothing pressing to do, so out I went for a little walk through Greenlawn Cemetery in Salem, MA. Truly a wildlife treasure... I have better luck out there than most runs to Plum Island. Maybe just the fact it's a smaller area with full access to every corner of the grounds whereas Plum Island limits your wandering a bit.
In any event! It was a nice nature walk... always peaceful (as it should be and always remain).
Since I've done a fair share of night shots now, I've split the night photography gallery into location specific galleries... a bit more organized for it all. So with that little site update news out of the way, this was a random winter excursion on a freezing cold night. I think it was in the teens by the ocean... 3 am and even with two sets of gloves on, my hands were still numb trying to shoot. Clear night though, so had to give it a shot. Only bad thing is there's so much light pollution out there... and everywhere really around this area, but not a bad run overall.
