In Ashfield:

The weather hasn’t been cooperative, and this shot is a pleasant departure from the usual fare.

After a premature Spring with temps pushing 90, this:

Snow in the high country, several inches.  Northern Vermont got two feet, so I guess we should count ourselves as lucky.

Mount Greylock got a good coating:

…and Monroe got its share:

Strange, after such a warm early April.  Flowers and flowering trees might take a beating from this, regardless of its transience.

We’ll see, I guess.

Rebuilt by Mel in Bernardston, MA:

Pristine 302, four-on-the-floor, hauls ass.  $30K or B.O.

This was the most Rubylicious thing which crossed my path this week, and so gets a free trip to Work of the Poet, where Mary “The Teach” hosts this colorful meme.

Took the slightly longer way home today, down along the Deerfield river, looking for flowering trees at the river’s edge.  Instead I found a young bald eagle rending a rainbow trout up in a big oak tree:

I was screened from it by enough branches to be able to watch it for a while without spooking it.  Unfortunately they also obscured the eagle, but hey, I tried!

Thanks to Gizmo for this one, propped up as he was in my driver’s side seat.

1961 Buick Special:

Low rider, very low rider:

White walls:

…slightly disjointed:

Inquire within,

if you dare.

All of these are courtesy of Elliot, who provided considerable tilt and shift to my humble efforts.

Thanks, T.S.!

Some little things which had the poor judgment to cross my path today.

Common club moss, here topped with its Spring fertile hats and drenched with morning dew:

Pussy Toes, along the road:

That’s a quarter inch of pristine complexity.

A clump of violets, the local wild kind:

Early saxifrage, clinging to a roadcut on the drive home.

And a little red Columbine, considering whether or not to unfurl its crown at this early date:

Things have popped early this year, and risk being taken down by a cold snap.

Meanwhile, I’m happy to share them with you.

*Yet Another Red Barn.

So it’s Spring, the sun rises earlier, sets later and achieves greater heights.

And it casts stellar shadows, like this one on a Rubilicious local barn:

I know, “Ho-hum.”  But this is New England, Home of the Ho-Hum, and it’s what I got.

For more inspired renditions of Ruby Tuesday, visit Mary over at Work of the Poet.

A red (or purple, as your eyes see it) trillium:

Tonight, as the sun dove into the western dirt:

Sun and clouds, earth and sky, the same-old-same-old rendered in all its spectacular presence.

No matter how many times I see the sun go low here in Charlemont, I’m still struck dumb by the beauty of it.

Mount Monadnock, Southern New Hampshire’s proudest prominence, looms large on our Northeastern skyline:

It’s a strong hour’s drive from here, perhaps a bit more if one tends to obey the law, but pulled in tight by the magic of Gizmo, my 400mm L-series lens.

I kinda liked the shot, and hope you do as well.
