Photo Shoot: Harkness Memorial Park

Several weeks back my photography friend’s, Shanna and Kelly, decided it had been too long since our last photography field class. Sadly enough, Shanna couldn’t make it today, but Kelly and I headed over to Harkness Memorial State Park to shoot photos. I went to college on this side of the state and discovered this park with Craig while driving around and exploring the area. Since that time I love to come over and visit. There’s a mansion on the property, gardens, a long stretch of lawn and ocean front. We decided to head over a little later and let the morning storm clouds pass.

If your in the area please take some time and go see his beautiful work.

Oh yeah and it was a perfect 70 degrees. This is the kind of weather where you can work up a sweat and it’s taken a way by that nice breeze and you cool off again. So on a day like today, I went kayaking. Craig’s parents had their campsite set up at Lake Waramaug in New Preston. If you’ve never been I highly recommend it. It’s a beautiful lake, the state park is very nice, and generally it’s pretty quiet. We went up on Saturday evening, had some marshmallows over the fire, and then headed home. Sunday, we headed back up after church, and […]
