Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #95

In honor of autumn, last week’s photo challenge featured Andrew Colabella’s orange-filtered shot of some trees and reeds.

They could have been many places in Westport. Lots of alert “06880” readers zeroed in on the Longshore/Gray’s Creek/Compo Beach Road area. They were close.

But only Peter Barlow and Diane Bosch knew that the shot was taken in Longshore’s lower parking lot — beyond the golf course. It showed the east bank of the Saugatuck River. Click here to see the gorgeous image (and read all the ohsoclose responses).

This week’s photo challenge is also seasonal. The season was spring — but this Adirondack chair perches on the grass all year long. If you know where it is, click “Comments” below.

  9. Tom Ryan, Wendy, Jan and Vanessa: You’re right. It’s on Beachside Avenue, past Greens Farms Academy headed to Southport. A beautiful spot, near where the Bankside Farmers first arrived.

    • Thanks for posting this pic. I have long thought this is the one spot in Westport that makes me feel as if I am in California when I drive by.
