Hartsbrook Farm pano

 Another favorite bike destination is this afternoon view of Hartsbrook Farm against the light. I've done it several times, but this time I decided to try a pano of the whole scene.

Racor switch

 I sketched this endearing personage on a walk today. Subsequently learned that it is a Racor switch.

Power plant

 I've done this power plant a few times looking south from a ways up the river, but yesterday I found myself right opposite it, and did this watercolor sketch.
