I'm an avid birder and nature photographer wishing to share some of my sightings & images taken while out in the "wilds" of Cape Ann and surrounding New England countryside. More images can be found on my web site at New England Birds Plus Enjoy, Phil Brown

Amesbury Waterfall

Hidden in plain sight in the center of Amesbury, MA is a wonderful little waterfall created by the waters of the Powwow River and formerly used by the surrounding mill buildings.

One of the items you walk by on your way to the waterfall is this 6' tall tribute to Amesbury's own Al Capp, creator of the Li'l Abner comic strip. More information on Al Capp here

I spent a bit over an hour trying to find the best angle through the fence on the pedestrian foot bridge over the river. The image below was shot a just over a full second to create the smooth look to the water.

This is a typical image with the water "frozen" with a fast shutter speed. Nice if you like the look....

This is a very quiet area on a mid-morning Sunday allowing for lots of time to play with the camera settings.

and lastly a closer look at this lovely little water fall that's just a few steps from the center of town.

 I'll have to go back on an overcast day to get a bit more detail out of the water.
