In Motion

Crane Beach, Massachusetts
 
Grasses have learned to adopt the wind into their being.
    Swaying streaks of shimmer, the sound of waves and
    
      sandpipers... in the rhythm of the ocean... 

Crane Beach: ... swaying streaks of shimmer...




Crane Beach: ... the sound of waves...

Crane Beach: ... and sandpipers...

Crane Beach: ... waiting for the high tide...

Crane Beach: ... stepping...

Crane Beach: ... in a hurry...

Crane Beach: ... not so much here...

Crane Beach: ... and how about you ?...

Crane Beach: ... I wish to dazzle...

Crane Beach: ... me too...

Cross Paths

Crane Beach, Massachusetts
 
Walking sand dunes always brings these feelings of entering the world
   where any bit of time and space is in continual change yet stays forever...

A young deer has just crossed our pathway...
   stops and looks at us in wonder, no fear in her eyes, only questions...
 
      and then she leaves in soundless elegance...  

Crane Beach: ... cross paths...

Crane Beach: ... stops and looks...

Crane Beach: ... no fear in her eyes...

Crane Beach: ... only questions...

Crane Beach: ... of who we really are ?...

Crane Beach: ... passing youthful curiosity...

Crane Beach: ... and then leaves in soundless elegance...

Crane Beach: ... while the pathway continues...

Point of Return

Crane Beach, Massachusetts
 
Swallows raise their young on this beach. Enough sand to build nests, enough food for everyone...
  Coming in late spring, dispersing over grassy dunes
     until late summer,
    when they conjoin for the long journey to warm winters... 

  Have a good flight and come back again !!!

Living Meadow

 Mass Audubon Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts
 
Being close to a meadow at this time of year,
  with the butterfly flutter attuned to the summer aromas...
 
  and I find myself in the midst of this busy world, just watching... 

Moose Hill: ... being close to a meadow...

Moose Hill: ... at this time of year...

Moose Hill: ... with the butterfly flutter...

Moose Hill: ... attuned to the summer aromas...

Moose Hill: ... and curves...

Moose Hill: ... where some appear suddenly...

Moose Hill: ... on the tops of grasses...

Moose Hill: ... and I am in the midst of this busy world...

Moose Hill: ... just watching...

Silky Crest

Tully Lake, Massachusetts
 
Resting on the branch... this silky attire of yellows, browns, grays,
         with red drops on the wings and the yellow on the tips of the tail... the crest and the mask...

    in perfect harmony with the lake...   

Tully Lake: ... resting...

Tully Lake: ... with the views...

Tully Lake: ... the crest and the mask...

Tully Lake: ... in perfect harmony...

Tully Lake: ... with the lake...

Water

Tully Trail, Tully Lake Reservation, Massachusetts
 
Walking along Tully River...
  trees are reflected off puddles making this muddy pathway a scenic aquarelle...
   I can feel water in the reply from nature... everywhere...

Tully Lake brochure says that the trails are opened year round unless flooded...  

Tully Trail: ... streams have awakened...

Tully Trail: ... along the river...

Tully Trail: ... and puddle mirrors...

Tully Trail: ... swashing...

Tully Trail: ... over ferns...

Tully Trail: ... blocking the passage...

Tully Trail: ... this one is passable...

Tully Trail: ... and the water...

Tully Trail: ... cheered by ferns...

Tully Trail: ... not so by those who have to pass here...

Tully Trail: ... will have to circumvent...

Tully Trail: ... hop, hop...

Tully Trail: ... over the ridge... look there...

Tully Trail: ... swampy lushness...

Tully Trail: ... of aquarelles...

Tully Trail: ... and the smile at the point of descent...

Tully Trail: ... with the sun, water, and life...

Tully Trail: ... in the company of young hemlocks...

Tully Trail: ... and Long Pond...

Tully Trail: ... in continuum...
