A cold and very windy day at Appleton Farms in Ipswich was great for tree silhouettes. Five folks joined me on this first excursion of the Meetup group: North Shore Outdoor Photographers.
This was my first trip to Appleton Farms in Hamilton, MA in a couple of months and I was not disappointed. The rows of ancient oaks still line the entrance road, and over 300 years of farming history warm the shadows on an early spring afternoon.
The rolling pastures of Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA are a frequent refuge for me when I need to feel at peace. I roam the dusty roads between the old field, camera and tripod in hand. Here in Essex County, MA, not far from my home in the suburbs north of Boston, even the herd of 40 grass-fed dairy cows seem to know that all will be well.
