Clouds, snow and shadows

Cirrus clouds on the AT

Cirrus clouds on the AT

Cornwall Bridge, Connecticut.

We took a hike south on the Appalachian Trail along the Housatonic River and as we got out onto a big field this amazing clouds blew into view above the ridge to the west. I took ten shots and the clouds were moving so fast that each was completely different.

We hiked all the way down to Kent and then turned around and came back. A few hours later, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky.

Spring-like melt

Out in the middle of a big field there were still patches of snow on top of the grass but they were melting fast. This seems very odd for the end of February; last year at the same time we were snowshoeing on this field.

By the time we returned the sun was very low making for some great shadows, including our own. The Ricoh GR is in my right hand.
