Dundee, Scotland. RRS Discovery

Launched in Dundee in 1901, she was the last of the traditional wooden three-masted ships to be built in Britain. The Discovery Point  Museum in Dundee, where the RRS DISCOVERY is located,  is well worth a visit.

New London (Connecticut) Ledge Light

It is not always easy to get a photograph of this lighthouse from land. It sits at the entrance to New London Harbor. The view is often obstructed by fog, rainy weather, or poor lighting. It has been automated since 1987.

Frog Bridge, Willimantic, Connecticut

There are two bridge approaches to Willimantic.
The one I usually take was blocked by a  sluggish freight train. 
So I turned around and went to the Frog Bridge, so designated because it has frogs on all 4 posts. What caused me to grab my camera was the cloud formation. Read more about the Willimantic frogs by clicking here.

Quinebaug River, Putnam, Connecticut

Quinebaug River, Putnam
Very impressive river view, as the river, fueled by recent rain and snowstorms spills over the boulders before passing under the bridge.
