New kind of hammock - A Floating Bed

I'm crazy about movement when I relax - rocking chairs, gliders, porch swings, hammocks. Now I have found something different - a floating bed.  This looks like such fun.

Wish I had one in my living room!

Golden Atumn Leaves

It was a beautiful Indian Summer day. With the sun coming though leaves that were turning yellow, the woods looked golden. Mr. B managed to find the way to a stream in Hanover, CT that we had seen two years ago. There was plenty of space to pull the car off the road. I headed into the woods and clambered over the large rocks bordering the stream. My tripod was useful in helping me maintain my balance.

The first time I photographed this stream two years ago was my first time successfully adjusting my shutter speed and everything else to get a nice smooth effect on the flowing water. In the interim I have learned a lot. Today's photo shoot was a big success. I only had to delete a few shots - most of them because I was having trouble standing still on the wet rocks. Visions of myself on crutches was strong motivation to be very careful!

I am grateful to live in such a beautiful place - Northeast Connecticut.
