I went out to run an errand today and I took my new camera with me. After everything was done I stopped at the Spicket Falls Dam because of course I did.

I stopped at the Spicket Falls Dam on the way home and snapped a few pics.
Safe bet that the next visit will be on film.
Manual Mode Part 1
I am about to post a bunch of pictures from this morning’s manual mode bonanza. I am going to break it into three posts. One will be downtown Methuen and the top of the Spicket Falls Dam, The second will be the Methuen Rail Trail and the Bird Sanctuary. The third will be Walnut Grove cemetery.
Here’s the downtown and the dam pics. I don’t think I will give any details, just pics.
All of these were shot with my Nikon D90 in manual mode because I am insane.
Light Up the Falls
This is a photo of the Spicket Falls dam in Methuen.
This is a really terrible picture of Niagara Falls with some of the colored night lights turned on.
The two things have nothing in common other than they show water falling off a cliff. In New York/Ontario it’s natural. In Methuen it’s man made. That isn’t relevant though.
The city has announced an art project where they are going to install colored lights that local artists will be able to use to create light shows on the water falling over the edge of the Spicket Falls dam. It’s going to open for a test run some time in the fall, and then open for real in the spring of 2022. The water flow is only that high during the rainiest times of year so I don’t think this will be a year round thing… but it is cool.
Covid-19 notwithstanding, Robbie is going to bring his camera. Bank on it.
