Race Brook above the falls

Race Brook Falls Trail, Southwest Massachusetts.

 

This was our first hike on this trail in a long while without snowshoes or micro spikes. There were patches of ice in places but it was easily traversed without slipping.

 

Race Brook was running high because of the snow melt which is just the way I like it.

 

These two shots were taken on Race Brook above the upper waterfall which is about one hundred yards behind me.

 

I've taken many images along this part of the brook when the water is high because it has just enough drop to create interesting micro-rapids and an occasional small waterfall.

 

The Ricoh GR wide angle lens attachment helped create a more dramatic landscape by capturing the forest on either side of the brook.
