Little Cascades. Little moments of Peace
It always amazes me when I find new spots to photograph in Connecticut especially waterfalls. The spot I shot a few days ago isn’t entirely new to me, in fact I pass by it quite often on my way to other places. It is also not really an officially listed waterfall but I have always said that it would be cool to shoot here, so I just stopped and did it the other day. Well worth an exploration.
The spot in question is located a stones throw from from where Rte 154 and Rte 82 intersect in Haddam. There is a dirt lot and the cascades are right there to begin your exploration.
Speaking of great resources to find waterfalls in Connecticut (we have so many!), stop over to J. G. Coleman’s page @ https://www.connecticutwaterfalls.com/. He has done a great job of photographing and cataloging all of our beautiful waterfalls.
The creek was running great this evening with all the rain we have been having. It was not deeper than my hips in the deepest areas but I would still suggest waders to help you explore the area and if you have them, micro spikes come in very handy here. That green on the rocks is all over the place and make it slippery as ice.
I didn’t have any other visitors during my time here so I had plenty of time to walk up and down the creek to capture the bits I found interesting.
This is as far as I went up as the light began to get very low. There are possibly more cascades if you travel up creek even farther but that will have to be for another day.
So if you want to photograph some beautiful cascades that don’t require hiking through miles of woods, this one is easily accessible. A very enjoyable evening at Clark Creek in Haddam Connecticut.
