I'm thinking our wishes were still in good hands...

She Succumbed




I've photographed this tree many times.
I've also admired it from the roadside
driving by for years.
I noticed one day this
winter that she was gone.
I wanted to stop and photograph her
that day but was on my way to work.

Today I took the time to photograph her.
She still held her dignity and strength in
her roots.  It was such a lovely day and
I was one of only a few on the water.

While floating around her for a while
I shared the space with two loons
swimming by the island.

Peaceful Day....

enjoy,

Backyard Neighbors

Once again our Robins have chosen new "digs".  These accommodations are giving us great viewing right from the deck in our back yard.  Family dinners are a blessing whether they are at our table or theirs.

















I guess this is our neighbors version of farm to table!

Wet and Wild On the Winni River

I had the pleasure of photographing Franklin's whitewater festival this past weekend "Winni River Days" organized through Mill City Park non-profit organization at Franklin Falls and Trestle View Park.

Marty Parichand from Outdoor New England was our trusty guide for our afternoon raft trip.  Marty is an experienced paddler and entrepreneur promoting the sport for whitewater enthusiasts in Franklin.
 We started out getting fitted with the proper gear to hit the water.  Once everything was secure we loaded into the van and headed up river.
Our vessel of the day was unloaded
 and brought down to the water.
A great group of boat mates looking forward to the adventure together, taking in the sights along the river as we became acquainted and practiced paddling skills.
 This crew quickly got into a calm, steady rhythm of paddling as the river began to get swift.
It wasn't long until we were into the rapids and working off the direction of our guide Marty.  As you can see I wasn't the only one getting wet!
 Through the trestle was exhilerating for all on board!
Not a dry soul on deck at the end of this trek!
 Many thanks to Marty, Abhas, Joe, Alicia, Jenisha, Jon and Carly for their mad paddling skills and a wet and wild ride!
