Photo of the Week #12 - Snow Covered Stream

March 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Photo of the Week is posted every Monday.  Each photo aims to document the things I've seen, places I've been and all sorts of curious things I have encountered as I go about my daily activities.  Along with the photo I will provide some background and interesting facts about the image and some technical information as well.

 

 

As a life-long resident of Connecticut, I still encounter places throughout the state that I have never seen or visited:  Chatfield Hollow State Park is one of those places.  After many weeks of dealing with one of the toughest winter seasons that I can remember, I managed to break free and get outdoors to take pictures on a rare "semi-warm" day in March.  There was still LOTS of snow everywhere but my goal was to find a location that was picturesque and I randomly chose this State Park.  It was everything I could have asked for.

 

It was my very first time visiting this park and many other people had the same idea.  Walking through the trails, I eventually came upon this beautiful little stream.  In my attempt to find the perfect sweet spot vantage point, I stepped into snow that was over 3ft deep!  Fortunately for me, I am 6'3" but my height could not help the fact that cold snow had found its way into my boots!  Brrrrr!   I quickly took a photo and made a hasty retreat!  It was such a peaceful day and I think the photo captures that mood.
