Cascading Falls - East Canaan, Connecticut

Blackberry Falls, Beckley Furnace, East Canaan, Connecticut

Along the Blackberry River in northwestern Connecticut, there's a Connecticut Industrial Monument known as the Beckley Blast Furnace.  This particular furnace was one of three blast furnaces in operation from 1832-1923. It produced pig iron for the manufacture of railroad car wheels. During this period, a dam was built that helped power the furnace, resulting in the falls that we see today.

I shot this image on the way back from a Springsteen concert that we attended in Albany, New York. It was mid-afternoon and I decided that a black and white image would work best in the light.
