T is for Tannin

The weather has held and the last two days have been great for photography in the woods of Enders. In fact at one point on Monday I was having such a great time that I wandered so far down stream that I had to climb a rather steep hill to the highway and walk the mile or so back to my car on Rt 219.
It was all quite worth it, for this stream is full of tannins that add a beautiful glow to the water when the light is just right.
I have hiked up and down this stream for over 40 years now, but it is just since I have put my eye behind my camera that I have started to see its full beauty. My only regret is that I did not do it sooner.
So that those of you that don't know Connecticut don't think that all we have here is water, I've posted a couple of shots of a lovely old colonial home that is close by Enders. This area has been timbered and farmed for centuries and has many old homes and roads that have survived the ages.
Thank you all for your kind comments and encouragement. I will as suggested, post more of these Enders shots in a new Gallery on my website.Click link Below.
