Children and art

I don’t shoot strangers, let alone children very often. In this case, I could not help myself. This is just so much fun on so many levels.

Silk Road

There are three bridges in the Bennington, Vermont area. This is the first time that I’ve shot this bridge. It is located on Silk Road in North Bennington. You can’t miss it.

Long shadows at Appleton Farm

The weather was pleasant enough to get out last Sunday. Even at 3:00 in the afternoon, the shadows get pretty long. The sun is setting very low and the colors become a bit warmer.

This is Elsa bathed in the late afternoon light. The color temperature is warm, but the air temperature wasn’t. Alas, stick season is upon us.

Red and White

How can you not stop to take some shots of a red house in the white snow? This location is across the Henry Bridge in North Bennington.

The Henry Bridge over the Waloomsac

Off of Rt 67A in North Bennington, Vermont is Murphy Rd which is the road that the Paper Mill Bridge takes you over the Waloomsac River. Follow Murphy Road and you will find the Henry Bridge. These were taken on Thanksgiving Day after the big storm.

The Last Floating Ship that Served at Pearl Harbor

One of the historic ships that call Baltimore, Maryland home is the USCG Taney. The Taney is the last floating ship that served at Pearl Harbor. I had a little free time while I was recently on business travel and toured the ship.©2014 Steve Borichevsky

Forgotten Photo Friday, Ten Pound Island Light

If we were still living on The Fort in Gloucester, this is what the sunset would look like. Here is Ten Pound Island Light with Dogbar Breakwater in the background.

The Paper Mill Bridge in Snow

Just outside of Bennington, Vermont is the Paper Mill Bridge, just off of Rt 67A. There seems to be a little construction going on at the bridge and dam site. But I found a way to shoot around it.

There is another shot I wanted to get. I had to do some bushwhacking to get down to the river.

Buskirks Bridge after the storm

Not far away from yesterday’s little train station is Buskirks Bridge. I’ve always wanted to shoot covered bridges in the snow, but getting on location from where I live to where the bridges are takes three to four hours and driving around after winter storms is not my most favorite thing to do. Since there are several bridges close by my mom’s house, I grabbed my gear and took advantage of the storm.

Let me explain my recent absence

I know I’ve been a little off and on lately. Let me explain what happened. Of course, here in the United States, we celebrated our Thanksgiving holiday last Thursday. Alas, we got a load of used, wet air from off the coast of Florida that screamed up the eastern seaboard. My original plan was to go out Wednesday, but since we were set to get hit by a significant Nor’ Easter, I decided to leave for my parents house in New York Tuesday night. It was a last minute decision to get ahead of the storm. Thus, I was not able to set up my posts.

The storm hit Wednesday and blew threw early Thursday morning. The family decided to postpone our celebration until Friday because we had other family members traveling in from Vermont and some were without power.

Usually these storms are accompanied with a lot of wind afterwards. This one was not. I had a golden opportunity to go out to get some great snow shots!

This is a derelict railroad station in Eagle Bridge, New York. I’ve often wanted to shoot it, but it really does not have good curb appeal and the light has always been terrible. But Thursday was my opportunity.

I did not know that there is a Pan American Railways company. I arrived as the track inspectors were setting out to ride the rails after the storm.

Barred Owl in a White Pine Grove

This is one of the most difficult photo shoots that I’ve pulled off. I was walking through Appleton Farms and herd a bunch of Blue Jays scolding in a pine grove. After listing to the Jays bicker and complain for a while, I saw a large shape fly through the white pines. He landed in close to the trunk and was in the shadows. It was about 50 feet in the above ground and the pine grove was thick and dark.

The Blue Jays started to scatter as I came in, but the Barred Owl didn’t mind my presence. Eventually the Jays disappeared which perplexed me because the jays were not afraid to harass the owl, which may like to dine on jays, but they were afraid of me, a creature that has never tasted a jay.

Nevertheless, the Barred Owl was not the least bit afraid of me and let me take some shots. This is my favorite!

Eventually he found another branch and started preening as the sun started to go down. What you are seeing here is its foot with the claws retracted. For a brief moment, the sun peeked through the clouds.

Having captured my images, I left it in peace. Perhaps he was happy that I came by an spooked the jays away. Or maybe it just didn’t care.

Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week.
