Appalachian Trail, Merwinsville, Connecticut.
We hiked the first section of the AT in Connecticut (over Ten Mile Hill) and this swamp is right off Route 55. It always seems messy and uninteresting until you look closer and then interesting photographic possibilities open up.
This image was processed with Apple’s Photos application in macOS Sierra. This version of Photos isn’t very good and I’m no expert on using it but the Photos upgrade coming in the next MacOS update (High Sierra) looks excellent and I’m hoping its good enough at doing what I like so that I can move away from Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom is a great application that I’ve used since it came out but Adobe is moving away from stand-alone desktop applications and I don’t want to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud. Time will tell…
Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail.
I hiked my section of the AT in Connecticut today and there’s been enough rain recently so the streams are running. This small stream which I’ve shot ice in over many years had a nice reflection so I gave it a try.

My flickr contact Bill Eaton took this amazing image of a ring necked duck in the Viera Wetlands near Melbourne, Florida.
Our pond is frozen today but has had some mallards on it already this winter/spring and more ducks will come no doubt, including a pair of very colorful wood ducks.

Macedonia State Park, Connecticut.
Since we’ve had a drought for a while, finding pools of water with reflections has been tough. This time of year this pool should have been ice but it’s warm enough now so things are wet, and so, reflections. Choose a shallow enough pool and you can see the leaves through the water.
My flickr contact Erik posted this fantastic reflection off what looks like a truck or bus taken with this Ricoh GR.
My flickr contact John Penoyar took this terrific reflection in a puddle. I believe this is flipped although I’m not absolutely sure.
My flickr contact Peter Bowers posted this serene image of a sunrise through fog on Redstone Creek in Ontario, Canada.
Flickr member ShrubMonkey took a terrific picture of Brighton, England’s i360 vertical gondola. The image and reflections are terrific, even though the “ride” is rather odd.
