Kent Falls

by | Oct 9, 2011 | Impressive Places | 2 comments

Because I was in Connecticut a few weeks too early to see the peak fall colors, I focused on shooting waterfalls during my three day visit. It was cloudy most of my stay anyway, so it worked out very nicely. The first falls I photographed was Kent Falls, a spectacular, multi-tiered, easily accessed falls (actually visible from Rt. 7) in the far western part of the state. I heartily recommend visiting these falls for anyone traveling through the area, photographer or no! It was a weekday and it rained slightly so there were very few people around; however, the place was made to accommodate large crowds which I’m sure there are during the summer months. Because of this, there is a fence along the trail all the way up to the top  with signs everywhere telling you to stay on the trail. Not exactly friendly territory for landscape photographers. But don’t let this deter you! It’s a spectacular natural phenomenon, even from the trail.

    Oh my goodness, you’ve just been in Oregon!?!?
    I can understand your wanting to come here to shoot pictures- it is such a beautiful state! But had my family known that you were going to be here, in our state, we would have loved to have met you in person! We have spent time with, and gotton to know & love your brother Robert(and his precious wife too!), and my sister & I have followed your photography here for some time. And the really crazy thing is, we currently live just off of HWY 30 in Rainier! So, though I am sad to hear that we missed maybe getting to see you, I am very glad that you had the oppourtunity to capture some beautiful images here in OR!

    Just the other day I was out taking some shots in the morning of some beautiful fall leaves & intricate and yet so individual spider webs- and I just had to marvel…praise the LORD for his glorious creation!

    May He continue to bless you as you travel and capture the beauty of His creation!

    Mallory, and the Devine family
