You could shoot along the Emerald Necklace everyday for a year and still not cover it all. The Necklace comprises half of the City of Boston’s park acreage, parkland in the Town of Brookline, and parkways and park edges under the jurisdiction of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. More than 300,000 people live within its watershed area. From Boston Common to Franklin Park it is approximately seven miles by foot or bicycle through the parks.
Cider Hill Farm began in 1978 when Ed and Eleanor Cook purchased the old Battis Dairy Farm with the hope of transforming it into an apple farm. Not long after that, the Cook’s son, Glenn, along with his new bride, Karen, bought the adjacent Vedrani Poultry Farm so they could start a quality life together.We now grow fruits and vegetables on nearly 70 acres of our 145 acre farm and offer many of these as pick your own crops. We have grown a very diversified approach in regards to labor, marketing, season extension, community involvement, and progressive practices that you will see in our renewable energy projects.
I love this wonderful historic bookstore right in the downtown area of Amesbury. There is so much to paint and photography in such a small little area. This is another one of the incredible quintessential New England Towns.
If you ever make it to Amesbury, you absolutely have to get by Hodgies for really amazing ice cream.
Painting of the bright fall trees in Manhattan. There were quite a few late blooming trees this year in Central Park. I really enjoyed painting this one, along with a couple more I did this last trip to NY. The weather was spectacular, so I spent pretty much the entire day in the park.
It was a spectacular day, not even a hint of wind. There were many sightseers walking the cliffs, and many taking pictures of the coastline.
I walked around the corner, southeast of The Breakers Estate, to get situated. The cliff walk is interrupted momentarily there with a bit of sandy beach, and the mansions become less grand as you go. It was a nice enough spot and I picked up these four shots just before the sun went down.
