This is 1 of 4 posts of pictures I took at Spruce Brook Falls in Beacon Falls, CT on June 24, 2012. These were stacked rocks (Cairn) that had been assembled like the ones in the movie The Blair Witch Project, for some sinister pagan ritual no doubt. ;-)
This is 2 of 4 posts of pictures I took at Spruce Brook Falls in Beacon Falls, CT on June 24, 2012. I actually climbed up part of the waterfall, to get these inner pictures of it. The water was reflecting on the left side wall. You can't see it, but there is a third tier waterfall on the right hand side. I still haven't figured out how to access this waterfall from above, but I know it can be done because I saw people up there the last time I was here.
I took these pictures at Christ Church Parish, in Redding CT. I love the gravestones that have skulls on them. There is a beautiful stained glass window inside the church, but none of my pictures of it came out well.
I took these pictures of a full double rainbow around sunset last night, in Shelton CT. The pictures didn't come out too well, because it was still raining, and the second rainbow is hard to see, but I wanted to share this stunning sight. We had a heat wave here for the past few days, until a line of thunderstorms came through to break it. The skies were still storm cloud filled when the sun emerged close to its descent. The double rainbow made a complete arc, touching the horizon on both sides.
This is 1 of 5 posts of pictures I took at Spruce Brook Falls in Beacon Falls, CT on June 17, 2012. I love the way the water looks with the light and shadow created by the sun. I've been trying to go hiking every weekend, because it's very peaceful and relaxing for me.
This is 5 of 5 posts of pictures I took at Spruce Brook Falls in Beacon Falls, CT on June 17, 2012. This was an inviting looking water bathing pool at the intermediate base of this waterfall. The waterfall picture itself didn't come out too good. I think this was near where the brook crosses on the gravel road trail that is below Black Forest Road (Spruce Brook Road). I plan to return here to take more pictures.
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was the "Queen's Diamond Jubilee." Unfortunately I didn't get this done before the end of the celebration.
The images are from an Internet search, the Library of Congress, and Clipart ETC. I created the Queen of Diamonds playing card separately, and I created the background pattern. (See the right hand side of my blog for links.)
