The First of Summer
My favorite local spot for sunsets in
Summer - Arbutus Farm.
To provide a basic background of the property, the owners are conservationists. Every year, they leave the tall grasses unmowed until early August to ensure that birds like the Savannah Sparrow and the Bobolink have all raised their young. They have decided to preserve the land in its open state through a combination of the farmland preservation program and the Litchfield Land Trust conservation easements.
This is a very special place - very peaceful. I for one am grateful for the opportunity to photograph this view every Summer. To know that it will not change is reassuring.
