In Deep Freeze

Lincoln Conservation Land, Sudbury River, Walden Pond, Massachusetts
 
... the boathouse has plunged into frozen Sudbury... vibrating ice-cracking sounds... the River is flowing...
... Walden invites footsteps, opening unusual vantage points...
... in deep freeze...

Lincoln: ... over farm fields...

Lincoln: ... and streams...

Lincoln: ... passing the barnyard...

Lincoln: ... in winter clothes...

Lincoln: ... through the woods... onto the river...

Sudbury River: ... submerged...

Sudbury River: ... vibrating ice-cracking sounds...

Sudbury River: ... the river is flowing...

Walden Pond: ... inviting footsteps...

Walden Pond: ... opening unusual vantage points...

Walden Pond: ...

Walden Pond: ... frozen...

Walden Pond: ... memories...

Walden Pond: ... warming hearts...

Waiting for Her Gaze

Lusitania Meadow, Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts
 
A hawk has just landed on the vacant bat-house... very close. I await her gaze. She knows I am Here, but seems unmoved. Continues piercing what surrounds... until something attracts her attention...
   ... opens wings and flies away...
   ... we resume our walk...

Lusitania Meadow: ... winter marks...

Lusitania Meadow: ... just landed...

Lusitania Meadow: ... waiting for her gaze...

Lusitania Meadow: ... seems unmoved...

Lusitania Meadow: ... piercing what surrounds...

Lusitania Meadow: ...

Lusitania Meadow: ... until... opens wings and flies away...

Lusitania Meadow: ... we resume our walk...

Lusitania Meadow: ...

Fresh Pond: ... frozen... resting...

Just a Puddle

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts
 
... glittering passway... just a puddle...

Lusitania Pathway: ... threads of glitter...

Lusitania Pathway: ... in crystalline...

Lusitania Pathway: ... melodies...

Lusitania Pathway: ... passing...

Lusitania Pathway: ... staying...

Lusitania Pathway: ... just a puddle...

Lusitania Pathway: ... under veils of cold...

The Night of Red Moon

Cambridge, Massachusetts
 
20th of January to 21st of January.
When Earth casts her shadow on the Moon.
The night
When the sky opened up.

Red Moon: ... the night...

Red Moon: ... when Earth casts her shadow on the Moon...

Stairway to Heaven

Kurt Diederich's Climb, Acadia National Park
There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
...
Oooh, it makes me wonder
...
Your head is humming and it won't go
In case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow
...
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
...

LED ZEPPELIN, Stairway to Heaven


Diederich's Climb: ... there's a stairway...

Diederich's Climb: ...

Diederich's Climb: ... cutting through boulders...

Diederich's Climb: ... on the wings...

Diederich's Climb: ... edging cliffs...

Diederich's Climb: ... waiting...

Diederich's Climb: ... and a pause... can you hear the wind?..

Diederich's Climb: ... if you listen...

Diederich's Climb: ... the tune will come...

Diederich's Climb: ... when all are one and one is all...

Diederich's Climb: ... to be a rock and not to roll...

Opened for Walking

Fresh Pond Golf Course, Cambridge, Massachusetts

The golf course is closed for the season, opened for walking... and a visit to this large Sycamore... spaciously branching in multi-colored patches... spiky balls of seeds swinging on the wind... with birds enjoying the ride... and the food...

I stand below the crown and watch... each branch, each spiky ball, and each bird...
... makes me think: How would it be up-there?... in this colorful world, with these lovely birds... enchanting...
