Allens Pond is a nature preserve located in the southwestern corner of Dartmouth, Massachusetts on the border with Westport, MA. It has many hiking trails as well as a coastline area. On a clear day, the Elizabeth Islands can be seen on the horizon.
A small section of the coastline features some darks rocks protruding into the water. The sculptural quality of the rocks attests to the action of the incoming waves over the millennia. And likewise the incoming waves are modified by the shapes of the rocks. Long exposure times help to illustrate this interaction and create images of a luminous quality.
Along the Blackstone River
An ongoing exploration of the scenic beauty of the historic Blackstone River. The river begins in Worcester, MA and flows through several towns in Massachusetts and Rhode Island where it provided power to several mills erected along its southeasterly path. It flows into the Seekonk river south of the Slater Mill in Pawtucket RI.
The Taunton River begins at the confluence of the Town River and Matfield River in Bridgewater, Massachusetts and terminates in Mount Hope Bay in Fall River, MA. It travels past several towns along its 37 mile route.
Exploring the landscape can sometimes yield some interesting images – especially in the southwestern part of the United States. Wind and rain sometimes sculpt appearances of faces in the sides of sandstone and rock formations which are enhanced under the right conditions of light and shadow.
