Another hidden gem of Connecticut (especially for it’s photographers) is Buttonwood Farm, in Griswold. For several weeks in July people from all over New England come to experience acres and acres of Sunflowers. Here is part of the history of how these Sunflowers got there, right from the Buttonwood Farm website. “In 2003 at the suggestion [...]

It was a wonderful evening to go worm hunting. That’s Worm Moon hunting! With great weather upon us I took advantage of it and chased down the full Worm Moon last night. This time trying to get it coming up in back of the historic New London’s Ledge Lighthouse. Everything was going to plan until [...]
With this unreal winter weather here for at least another week I decided to go out and see what the East Haddam, Connecticut’s Devil’s Hopyard waterfall looked like. Even through the usual snow was not on the ground, and temperatures were in the 50′s the waterfall did not dissapoint. Other than a person walking their [...]
If comets, asteroids, planets, and winter storms can be named, I could name my own moon images. Keeping it local I present to you for the first time (drum roll please)…..The February Castle Moon, Meriden, Connecticut! The sun was about to go down, and the “Golden Hour” of photography was approaching. I set up my [...]
The historic Comstock Bridge in East Hampton, Connecticut renovation is almost complete. Closed in January of 2010 for a total makeover, this 95 foot covered bridge originally built in 1873 is now open to the public and walkable to cross the river. I was there this afternoon, as a steady flow of Comstock Bridge “watchers” [...]

The temperature finally dropped enough to form some nice ice crystals on my garage windows. Here is what I harvested at 13 degrees! I love shooting ice crystals. The possibilities are infinate! Here another image, but I thought I would invert it for a little change. Go here to see what I shot last [...]
I have always felt someone was watching me as I drove through Pope Park in Hartford, Connecticut. Now, CtCameraEye has the proof that a number of eyes have had the “Eye” on me! Thanks to Real Art Ways, Pope Park has 77 trees with cartoon faces to watch what is going on. Commissioned in 2009 Matthew [...]
A perfect day for leaf peeping in Connecticut yeilded more than a few frames of fall foliage in my camera. A never disappointing area to observe great autumn colors, and have maybe an apple fritter or two, is in Middlefield, Connecticut around the Lyman Orchards area. Rolling hills, acres of ripe apples, and squeals of children and [...]
Ok, it’s cold, windy and snowing outside. The perfect day to get out your telescope and do some observing. No, not the kind of observing we are used to, but how about something closer to home. I did just that today after watching the snow pile up yet again in my yard. But this time [...]
