"The Quiet Corner"...where in the world is that? If your from Connecticut you might have an idea but most people don't have a clue. Wikipedia describes the Quiet Corner as a region of the state of Connecticut, located in the northeastern corner of the state. It is generally associated with Windham County, but also incorporates eastern sections of Tolland County and the northern portion of New London County. The most frequently cited boundary is the semi-rural town of Coventry, which is noticeably more rustic in character than the more suburban towns to the west with the exception of Andover, CT.

The Quiet Corner is known for being underpopulated and isolated in contrast with the rest of Connecticut, with many of its towns having populations below 5,000. It received its name from its status as an area largely composed of rural and semi-rural towns containing large areas of farmland, rivers and lakes, and state forests. It forms one of the least-urbanized districts along the Northeast Megalopolis.

A graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, I have worked for 4 years as a sports photographer, a wedding and event photographer. I am in the process of shifting my focus to nature and travel photography and this photoblog will bring you images from Connecticut's northeast region known as "The quiet corner". I hope you enjoy the photos here and your comments are always welcome.
