Sunset from Sugarloaf

Couple of evening shots from Sugarloaf in South Deerfield. As the CT River snakes its way through the countryside we have a view of some of the most fertile farmland on the East coast of America. The CT River valley farmers grow onions, cucumbers, potatoes, pumpkins, corn, tobacco and nearly everything else you can think of in those rich alluvial soils.

We start off with a detail shot at 135mm, then a 35mm, then super wide 14mm then finally a fisheye view.

Thanks! It's a beautiful spot and I have wanted to get some sunset shots from up there but it's been either rainy or hazy all summer long.

As an aside, Mel Gibson shot a few scenes for a movie up here last year. Not sure which movie.
