Rigid and Cold

Mass Audubon Broadmoor, Natick, Massachusetts

... wintry rigid and cold envelops Broadmoor... frozen sketch sheets permeate the forest... the time of golden grasses and long shadows... with intermittent ice-cracking sounds...
   ... a woodpecker knock-knock-knocks... and this is all I can hear...

Broadmoor: ... rigid and cold...

Broadmoor: ... imbuing the pond's surface...

Broadmoor: ... with frozen life...

Broadmoor: ... and breath...

Broadmoor: ... sketch sheets permeate the forest...

Broadmoor: ... grabbing my attention...

Broadmoor: ... sheet by sheet...

Broadmoor: ... gazing...

Broadmoor: ... the time of golden grasses...

Broadmoor: ... and long shadows...

Broadmoor: ... caught up in the play...

Broadmoor: ... with intermittent cracking sounds...

Broadmoor: ... and knock-knock-knocks...

Broadmoor: ... towards the sun...

Quite a Special View

Lusitania Meadow, Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

... strolling Lusitania Meadow... edging cottonwood trees, weaving the heights... and then there is this branch... chosen by a red-tailed hawk... we have seen her before, sitting on this same branch...
   ... quite a special view... quite a special branch...

Lusitania Meadow: ... quite a special view...

Lusitania Meadow: ... quite a special branch...

Between the Sun and Clouds

Mass Audubon North River, Marshfield, Massachusetts

... through the marshland, out into the ocean... golden touch-ups amid moving darkness...
   ... a place on the river between the sun and clouds...

North River: ... through the marshland, out into the ocean...

North River: ... grasses... bring me closer to the river...

North River: ... and the wind...

North River: ... a few steps...

North River: ... in the woods...

North River: ... Yes, I see you !

North River: ... golden touch-ups...

North River: ... amid moving darkness...

North River: ... dispersing sparkles...

North River: ... a place on the river...

North River: ... between the sun and clouds...

Moments in Time

Black's Nook, Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

... this time of year... when the pond becomes a storyline of the moments passed...
   ... first signs of winter...

Black's Nook: ... this time of year...

Black's Nook: ... when the pond becomes a storyline...

Black's Nook: ... of the moments passed...

Black's Nook: ... and frozen in time...

Black's Nook: ... sketching...

Black's Nook: ... first signs of winter...

Closing the Circle

Great Head and Sand Beach, Acadia National Park

...millions of water droplets... the reds excelling in scattered light... another look at the Ocean...
   ...the time to leave this place...

Great Head: ... millions of water droplets...

Great Head: ... excelling in scattered light...

Great Head: ... another look...

Great Head: ... the time to leave...

Great Head: ... in the forest...

Great Head: ... healthy living...

Great Head: ... in this world of water droplets...

Great Head: ... and ferns...

Sand Beach: ... and mist...

Sand Beach: ... closing the circle on the sand...

The Time to Listen

Great Head, Acadia National Park

... roaring, crashing, splashing... coming through the woods... I know and love these sounds...
   ... a pathway brings me closer...

Great Head: ... a pathway brings me closer...

Great Head: ... among the rocks...

Great Head: ... to watch and listen...

Great Head: ... to the rolling sounds...




Great Head: ... of thunders...

Great Head: ... and splashes...

Great Head: ... and crashes...

Great Head: ... in my eyes and ears...
