Spy photos

According to AutoWeek, spy photos captured by Chris Doane of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette give us a hint at what to expect when the sports car is released next year.

“From the look of it, the next Z06, which some sources suggest may be called the Z07, will be even meaner looking than the base Stingray. Despite the heavy black camouflage wrapper at the front and rear of the car, it looks like the front fascia is getting reworked — and covering up the new vent just ahead of the rear wheel well would have defeated its purpose, so we get a good look at it.”

Doane Falls, a quiet country stream turns turbulent

A beautiful description of Doane Falls is found on The Trustees of Reservations’ website. This organization searches out Massachusetts properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value and preserves them for public use and enjoyment.

The Trustees of Reservations describes what makes Doane’s Falls a special place:

“We think it’s the pastoral quality of a reservation that showcases a quiet country stream as it turns turbulent. The waterfalls on Lawrence Brook just before it enters Tully Lake indeed grab one’s attention, both visually and audibly. The falls treat visitors to a bit of nature’s frothy frenzy, if not fury…” Read more here.

In the meantime, enjoy this picture graciously shared by Dana via Flickr. When we asked if we could use the photo she looked us up and found a family connection.

“I actually read a little about your association and came across Deacon John Doane…. small world, but John Dunham and Governor Bradford were both my ancestors, so our families once knew each other pretty well.

“Happy to share the picture.”

Thanks, Dana!

Doane Trucks were manufactured in San Francisco from 1916 to 1933. This relic Doane truck is resting in Sumner, WA.

Photographer Ray Elliott took a picture after driving past the rusty vehicle for years. He posted it on Flickr which is how we discovered it.

Elliot writes, “The truck is no longer easily visible from the road having been pushed back under some trees.”

Thank you Ray Elliott for sharing your Flickr photo with the Doane Family.

Doane Falls glints in the sunlight

Doane Falls

Doane’s Falls is a series of five waterfalls located in Royalston, Massachusetts along an 0.2-mile section of Lawrence Brook, a tributary of the Millers River. There is an extraordinary collection of photographs of the falls on Flickr. This one comes from Massachusetts resident Glen Taylor of Mountain View Photography.

Taylor captured the picture July 5, 2009 and writes:

“Can you believe it? I actually got outside with my camera today.

“My brother-in-law hadn’t been to Doane’s Falls before so we went out this morning. The water is quite high since it’s done nothing but rain for about a month. The stone bridge is just visible in the top right of the photo but you can’t see the first two drops from this angle. I like how the sun’s rays stretch through the scene.”

“We also visited another waterfall after this, so all-in-all, it was a great morning.”

From another adventure to Doane Falls, Glen Taylor writes, “Taken on a recent trip to Doane’s Falls in Royalston, MA. A friend of mine, planning a trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, needed some advice on how to take waterfall shots where the water was silky smooth. I know this shot doesn’t have silky smooth water, but I was showing him the difference between a long exposure and a shorter exposure.” September 14, 2008.

“Oregon (ORR-ə-gən) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east.

“The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859.” ~ Wikipedia

“It features rugged rocky coastlines, dense forests, fun cities, mountains, deep canyons, and desert in the southeastern part of the state.” ~ Wikitravel

Washington is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

Washington was carved out of the western part of Washington Territory which had been ceded by Britain in 1846 by the Oregon Treaty as settlement of the Oregon Boundary Dispute.

It was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. ~ Wikipedia

Often referred to by its full title, Washington State, to distinguish it from Washington, D.C., Washington offers rugged coastline, deserts, forests, mountains, volcanoes, and hundreds of coastal islands to explore.

The Cascade Mountains bisect the state, with the damp forested coastal areas to the west, and pineforests, deserts and irrigated farmland of the Columbia River Plateau to the east. ~ Wikitravel

“Idaho is a rugged state, with 10,000 – 12,500 ft snow-capped mountains, whitewater rivers (one running through the deepest river canyon in the U.S.), forests, high desert, and plenty of wilderness. Most of the land north of Boise is National or State Forest.” ~ Wikitravel
