The walls closed in one day last week after a long promised snowstorm that fell short of expectations. After considering several options I headed for Norwich CT. I had a few quick errands to do there so it made sense.
Cameras and a warm jacket, cell phone, good shoes and off I went. There’s a site in Norwich known as “Indian Leap that I’ve visited once before during summer. The problem I faced this time was the piles of snow pushed up by the plows that left no place for me to park the car! Not do be outdone by some snow, I drove very slowly scouting possible parking places, not good, turned around and came back ever so slowly toward the location. Hmm, a 2 or 3 family house with a cleared parking area and only one car parked there. After much deliberation I pulled in, took my camera and I suppose you could say I tiptoed out of the parking area and crossed the street toward the Yantic River and the falls.
Yes, on my way but let’s be quick about this EP.
There’s a great railroad bridge at the same site and there are 2 images of the bridge in this post as well. One is pretty straight forward, the other is cropped significantly and rotated. Who ever said photographers don’t have any fun? It’s a lot easier than me rotating 90 or 180 degrees.
Back to the business at hand, photography! Yes I got some photos
There’s quite a story behind the naming of this falls. If you’re curious here’s a link for you to research. Norwich played an important part in the Revolutionary War as well. Indian Leap at Yantic Falls
Headed home, hot soup and a cookie both home-made. Yummy
