Lille Mountain–09-13-2019

Does this mountain have a name?  I don’t know, I have looked but never really found it. 

This is a favorite walk of mine and I am going to do some night photography up there one of these days!

The walk up to the overlook begins at the old Parent Pond, where as a kid we’d feed the ducks and there was a small bridge.  The bridge is long gone now, but the pond is still there.

‘Nuff said.

From this vantage point you can see what was once called Lille – a small off shoot village of Grand Isle.  It used to boast a store, garages, and a nice sized camp ground with a pool.  I remember the pool!  I remember folks camping out under the huge pines as well.

Then the walk down was pretty as well – the last photo is one of the many ponds on the way up. 

Please note: this is private property and I have permission to go there.

Archer– 09-13-2019

We adopted Archer when he was 9 months.  He is reliving his “oh my god pain in the A$$” puppy phase.  So when I go home, I try and bring him for a longer walker. This time we made it up the mountain in Lille.

He’s a calm boy outside, inside is a whole other thing!

From Littleton to Lille–8-31-2018

The biggest problem I face is the crowds!  Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles.  And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!

My back yard.  Yes, that’s mine.  Simple, yet gorgeous.

The view from the mountain!  I thought I’d get some super bright colors but I was wrong, but the one mile hike up and down was great!

Next time – STAR shots!

Best of Unsorted

A few years ago, I lost all my photos.  My backup drive went corrupt.  I was able to save most, but I did end up with having lost 2011 and some of 2012.  Thankfully, I did have some backed up here, on wordpress as well as a few on disc, remember that?

Both of these above were taken on Parent’s Mountain in front of my house.

This shot – took me a while to set up, mostly because the sun never quite hit at the right place.  I had to do a bit of – scouting to get JUST the shot!

The Calm

Photos taken along the St. John River – One a lovely summer evening when the water decided to take a siesta from its constant dance with the shores….
