I was driving through Wenham towards one of my favorite haunts on a scouting mission for fall colors. The colors I found were unexpected, to say the least.
I ditched the car, grabbed the gear and prayed for light for it was a dark, overcast day.
However, overcast days are excellent for shooting. I don’t have to worry about harsh shadows and I can shoot any time of the day. Only if I could get some shutter speed and depth of field!
This foxhound pack has a history that goes back to 1882.
Here the Huntsman is taking the pack down between a row of maples. 300mm, f/4.0, ISO 250 and 1/40 second. But I love the colors.
The pack is at the end of the field about 300 feet away.
Up and over the hill.
Since I’m familiar with the lay of the land of the Appleton farms, I was able to catch the hunt at two road crossings. Here is the end of the hunt.
If you are curious about fox hunting, may I suggest you check out the Myopia Hunt website.
