The Connecticut River Valley, specifically Chester, CT, is where I was born. It’s where my father’s family lived and farmed for generations. On a perfectly picturesque day a couple of weeks ago, we met with old friends and enjoyed a steam engine ride along the shores of the Connecticut River, traveling past small towns whose names play a large role in my family story. Part of the trip included disembarking from the train and boarding a riverboat for a cruise along the Connecticut River, offering a wonderfully different perspective than the train.
The fall colors were putting on a show and I took the opportunity to continue my play with long exposures. Either the camera or the subject and sometimes both, were moving during the exposure to create these impressions of that beautiful day along the Connecticut River.
Have you been able to get out an enjoy the fall colors? What are the fall colors like in your area?
