Nathan Hale Homestead

The Hale homestead is on a quiet and scenic country road in Coventry, 20 miles east of Hartford.  It is classic New England, don't you think?

Nathan Hale is the official state hero of Connecticut.  I have shown Hale before on this blog.  He will probably be here again.

I have linked to Ruby Tuesday again.

Nice shot , Jack. The Hale homestead is always a good place to find things to photograph.

Love the stone wall in the foreground, it reminds me of old villages in northern Portugal and some islands of the Azores Archipelago.

Many of your photos could be used as models for paintings, and this definitely is one.

I totally agree! Very New England!

This photo is as quintesssentially New Englandish as yesterday's photo was not.

Very neat place. I think this place is a haven for photographers so many things I see that I could take a photo. ^_^

Beautiful picture Jack, like the composition very much. The way they built those walls by fitting the stones together was an art in itself I think. Love the colour of the homestead, brave choice for such a big property, but it works so well.

Such a lovely, historic place and a terrific capture as always, Jack. And as always, I love your composition! Hope your week is off to a late/great start! Enjoy!

I like how everything is hooked together, so that going out in the severe New England winter is minimized!


RAINBOW DITTY

Dibs of yellow and dabs of red—
Rainbow colors go to my head!

Dashes of gold and crimson too—
Painted like this I can’t feel blue!

Defiant last words indeed. As for this homestead, it's classic and so beautiful. I would love to see it in the snow...

Like everyone I love your pic and how you used the stone wall in the front!

Yes, classic New England. Very picturesque.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

Classic New England - but not so very different from Olde England, especially the stone wall. Fine picture as always, Jack.

SRQ said...

Definitely classic New England. Gosh, I bet this is stunning in the fall with the leaving turning! I like your low angle, peering over the stone wall (which, by the way, is reminiscent of the Irish countryside).

Cildemer said...

Very nice contrast between the beautiful pink house and the green of the trees! Very nice light too!
And the stone wall completes the beauty of the place/shot!
Thanks for sharing, Jack;o)

Have a nice and happy week****

Excellent photo.

Chrissy Brand said...

Yes very new England, with very old England names. Hale is a very nice suburb south of Manchester, any relation I wonder?

Thank you for showing us places like this. I love to see historic homes and learn more about the lives of historical figures. I don't seek them out, but I am always happy when I run across them and then I have to learn more about it. - And you are right, it is classic New England and what a wonderful hero to have!
