Still the Time...

Crane Beach, Massachusetts
  
 ... the day is coming to a close, already...
      amidst fainting grasses
          this pair of lively birds, hopping over swirling branches of a dead tree... 

Crane Beach: ... still the time...

Especial Moments

Crane Beach, Massachusetts
  
   ... with the autumn sunlight... 

Crane Beach: ... especial moments...

Crane Beach: ... with the browns of Hudsonias...

Crane Beach: ... and the autumn sunlight...

Crane Beach: ... touching each leaf...

Crane Beach: ... birch catkins...

Crane Beach: ... some in the flight... observing...

Crane Beach: ... some in the crouch... recording...

Crane Beach: ... these theatrical minutes...

Crane Beach: ... and pathways...

Crane Beach: ... dancing autumn...

Crane Beach: ... over dunes...

Crane Beach: ... with long shadows...

Crane Beach: ... pictorial Sandpipers...

Crane Beach: ... in her own way...

Crane Beach: ... dreaming...

Crane Beach: ... in the autumn sunlight...

Unsinkable

 Brooks Woodland Preserve, Massachusetts
   
Walking along the swollen brook...
  After many rainy days, the bordering woodland is floating.
   Animals have retreated, some may have arrived...

       ... and the plants have stayed, creating this place of stoical beauty...

Brooks Woodland: ... walking along the swollen brook...

Brooks Woodland: ... after many days of rain...

Brooks Woodland: ... animals have retreated...

Brooks Woodland: ... and the plants have stayed...

Rutland Brook

Rutland Brook Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts
  
The sanctuary is named after the brook that passes through,
     as if being the center of attraction...
  Hopping over boulders left by glaciers millennia earlier,
     brings water to this wildlife commune
         and yes...
     everyone listens and revels in the sounds and bubbles, and shares this energy along...  

Rutland Brook: ... stepping into the stillness...

Rutland Brook: ... of blazing autumn...

Rutland Brook: ... showy and tender...

Rutland Brook: ... dusted with frost...

Rutland Brook: ... and the sounds of water...

Rutland Brook: ... in the company of the sunlight...

Rutland Brook: ... and the rustle...

Rutland Brook: ... there...

Rutland Brook: ... this hefty profile...

Rutland Brook: ... of the glaciers...

Rutland Brook: ... and the sounds of water...




Rutland Brook: ... deeply ingrained...

Rutland Brook: ... in this place...

Rutland Brook: ... of little...

Rutland Brook: ... of lofty...

Rutland Brook: ... and the sounds of water...

Rutland Brook: ... pulsate in the footsteps...

Rutland Brook: ... viewpoints...

Rutland Brook: ... reflections...

Rutland Brook: ... and in the air...

In the Shine

Brooks Woodland Preserve, Massachusetts
  
Autumn in the beech woodland...
  the leaves are up in the air, glowing
   and then come closer while I walk along,
        holding tightly to my eyes as if trying to keep me here forever... 

Brooks Woodland: ... autumn in the beech woodland...

Brooks Woodland: ... up in the air, glowing...

Brooks Woodland: ... and then come closer...

Brooks Woodland: ... while I walk along...

Brooks Woodland: ... the outbursts...

Brooks Woodland: ... of golden...

Brooks Woodland: ... sunlight...

Brooks Woodland: ... holding tightly to my eyes...

Brooks Woodland: ... as if...

Brooks Woodland: ... trying to keep me here forever...
