The trees are doing it, the grass is doing it:

forest green

The end of the road at the Mary Lyon Homestead.ย  I love the Spring pallet of greens, their unjaded enthusiasm for the waxing sun.

I get all of my drinkig water there, it’s unbelievably cold and clean.

Here’s a reflection in McLeod Pond up in Catamount State Forest:

The givaway is the bottom-lit hemlock bows in the upper left corner, a physical impossibility.

And here’s a shot of somebody’s unkempt side yard, with Violets Gone Wild beneath a quince bush:

quince and violets

I love the attitude of the fatty maple tree on the right.

Wow… that first picture.

Could I get a larger resolution copy? Please, please,please?

Thanks, Cuz, for all your photos.

Your photos just get more gorgeous every day, CR! You have such an incredible talent! I’m delighted to be able to enjoy them each day!

Yes, the MacLeod Pond shot is nice, but the trees in the top half need to be sharp.

How was your tropmabout at Bear Swamp yesterday? I saw someone else with a camera but didn’t recognize them as you until I got back to the truck. I’ll put some of mine up on the blawg tonight.

oh my i love them!!!!

Bob, will do. Drop me an e-mail so I have a return e-dress (I’m assuming it’s changed since our last correspondence. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

And Frau B, the trees are sharp – it’s their reflections in the rippling surface of the pond which look unfocused at this resolution!

And you other ladies, thanks again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

6. Frau Biergut - May 4, 2009

That’s what I thought. You need to turn the photo 180.


7. littlebangtheory - May 4, 2009

I did. That’s how I got it to look like that. I thought the fact that the cloud was only visible in the reflection was cool.

8. Frau Biergut - May 4, 2009

It’s disconcerting. It would work better in the proper orientation. What did you find at Bear Swamp?


9. Steve - May 4, 2009

These are tantalizing glimpses. I like number 3 best – something about the composition, and the different textures in the moss and lichens. The maple catkins are something I haven’t looked at closely enough – until now… Thanks for that.

I love the maple tree and wild flowers one best. Frau B might be right about the 180 – it’s cool but a bit disconcerting. Did you stand on your head?

11. littlebangtheory - May 4, 2009

Well, p’raps then. ๐Ÿ™‚

Frau B, just some pond shots, angles which I hadn’t looked at so closely before.

The trout lilies and ‘Breeches are going by, but there’s a buttload of red trillium still out.

12. Frau Biergut - May 4, 2009

What is interesting is that I found no Breeches on Sunday. They were replaced by the close cousin called Squirrel Corn.

This set totally blows me away.
