This morning I headed out on a few short errands. After the necessities were taken care of I headed over to the Contoocook River along the Falls Road between Hillsborough and Henniker. My intent was to stop at a few favorite spots just to see how the river was flowing.
Silly me… spring flow, weekend… my usual first stop, a kayak launch was packed with vehicles! Adapting quickly, I decided to photograph kayakers! I headed down river looking for places that might work to make some interesting photos.
I ended up at the gauging station and spent about ninety minutes sitting on a cold granite boulder in the shade; every so often a snow-cooled breeze wafted down the sloping bank. The air temperature was right around 40 F.
After the cold had soaked into to my bones, I headed to my favorite pizza joint in Henniker for lunch and then meandered back towards home making a few photographs along the way… of course!
