Snow !!!

Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Carlisle, Massachusetts

For me, snow is the queen of winter... I keep waiting, waiting and then she comes...
 ... sparkling over sleepy meadows and woodlands, expected and welcomed...

    ... along the lost paths, with the steps to follow...  

Great Meadows: ... snow !!!...


Great Meadows: ... still at the missed banks of Concord...

Great Meadows: ... lost paths... with the steps to follow...

Great Meadows: ... into the forest...

Great Meadows: ... the snow comes to protect...

Great Meadows: ... and enchant...

Great Meadows: ... the queen of winter...

Great Meadows: ... with her magic touch to make each branch count...

Great Meadows: ... in this fairy world of trees...

Great Meadows: ... intermingled...

Great Meadows: ... with the snow...

Great Meadows: ... and winding pathways...

A Field of Waves

Borderland State Park, Massachusetts

... how similar !!!... feels like wavy ocean, this field of grass blades...
    ... seems that both know well how to absorb the wind... 

Borderland: ... how similar !!!...

Borderland: ... feels like wavy ocean...

Borderland: ... so soft to kneel on...

Borderland: ... amidst swashes...

Borderland: ... swirling...

Borderland: ... in motionless playacting...

Borderland: ... these blades of grass...

Borderland: ... know how to absorb the wind...

Roaring Nor'easter

Cape Ann, Massachusetts

... waves in my eyes, the roaring sounds,
        and a nebulous feeling of being in touch with the Planet... 

Cape Ann: ... hilly ocean...

Cape Ann: ... roaring...

Cape Ann: ... in strength...




Cape Ann: ... breaching the barriers...

Cape Ann: ... rolling...

Cape Ann: ... into the mist...

Cape Ann: ... of windy rhythms...

Cape Ann: ... and foamy whiteness...

Unexpected Snowflakes

Mass Audubon Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary, Massachusetts

... I see them...
These snow crystals dance on the wings of the lightest breeze, dotting misty views...
    some land on my hand, some on the leaves... not making a difference... 

Wachusett Meadow: ... unexpected snowflakes...

Wachusett Meadow: ... dotting misty views...

Wachusett Meadow: ... some land on the leaves...

Wachusett Meadow: ... dusting...

Wachusett Meadow: ... showing...

Wachusett Meadow: ... falling...

Wachusett Meadow: ... and retouching...

Wachusett Meadow: ... the woodland...

Wachusett Meadow: ... ah, these crystals...

Wachusett Meadow: ... and the steps they leave...

These Wintry Moments

Breakheart Reservation, Massachusetts

Hard to find the winter?
  Look for these shady places where few sunrays visit... but a single sparkle is enough...  

Breakheart: ... looking for the winter...

Breakheart: ... these shady places...

Breakheart: ... where water drips over...

Breakheart: ... into the sculpted world of icicles...

Breakheart: ... and rocks...

Breakheart: ... in the poetry...

Breakheart: ... of light...

Tracing the Ocean

Crane Beach, Massachusetts

Low tide is at 11AM, just about the time we will be here...
  ... when the ocean flows away, leaving the sand sculpted in his own image...
    ... the dynamics of undulations, waves and ripples, it is all HERE...
 
    ... in this fabled world... 

Crane Beach: ... when the ocean flows away...

Crane Beach: ... weaving through the sand...

Crane Beach: ... gliding...

Crane Beach: ... sculpting...

Crane Beach: ... look here...

Crane Beach: ... slipping from the sand...

Crane Beach: ... rippling...

Crane Beach: ... in the image...

Crane Beach: ... of the ocean...

Crane Beach: ... coming... high tide in three hours...
