Station Road, Lawrence Station, Norwottuck Rail Trail, Amherst
Photograph and text by Eileen Donelan, Easthampton
Tired of being indoors in mid February, I went for a walk with a friend on the Norwottuck Rail Trail in Amherst. Shortly after leaving the parking lot I came upon an unexpected scene where the swamp borders the trail that made me immediately stop. The dead clumps of grasses, a tree stump and reflections on the glistening surface of thin ice patches created a landscape scene of ethereal beauty. I was fortunate to have my camera with me so that I could capture the mood of the scene. Created with a DSLR camera and a wide angle lens.
