Minisceongo Creek | Trash

I am a pretty mild mannered guy, but when I find scenes like this on hiking trails it just makes me furious.  This trash was not just at the top of the trail, but down the slope all the way to the streams edge. It was like a dump truck backed up and dumped its contents right there.  I took what i could, but we'll need a work party to go back and clean this mess up....

OK.  My rant is over.  I got to the creek a little later in the morning and got some nice color to play with. I did have to use a 4x Neutral Density filter because it was too bright for slow exposures to blur the water, but it was nice to work in a different light than I am used to... More directional and strong than when i am out at 6 am.  I generally prefer the early morning, but I am pleased with the images I was able to capture.

Keep Makin' Art!

Why is it that the COLORS of later in the day make the temperature feel different?

Anyway, that was a very controlled rant, considering what you found. Sometimes I just do not get some people.

It's good to actually see vibrant fall colors. In this part of CT we have some now, but it's really been very little this fall. Complain, complain, complain. We sure do get pretty spoiled.

Thanks Jeannette. Once I cooled down I got some nice stuff. Yeah I heard Southeast Ct is just not that colorful yet. We got some amazing color reflections on the Nick Zungoli - Autumn workshop today at Indian Brook. I'll post a few examples in a bit.
