A Rainy Week. May 20, 2011

It’s been raining all week, making cheery, blue-sky photography out of the question.

It’s a good thing I don’t mind the alternative!

I took another ride up Mount Greylock, which was shrouded in clouds and mist:

The road winds upward through boreal forests of spruce and mixed hardwoods, on this occasion appearing and disappearing through banks of clouds.  Because it had been raining on and off for a few days, the slopes were alive with Spring freshets:

…and blossoms of hobblebush floated like spirits among the maples:

Along the way, the forest floor was littered with wildflowers, trilium and trout lilies and Spring beauty:

A silent form glided across the road ahead of me, obligingly lighting on a branch not far away:

We watched each other for a while, then went on our separate ways.

As noodling goes, it was a good day for taking the long way home.

We’ve had many days of heavy fog and occasional rain. Your pictures taken in these lovely woodlands are so much nicer than ones taken on city streets. Then again, you and Elliot can capture the beauty of anywhere.

This is a really beautiful set of photographs. The way you display them leads the viewer from the hills beyond to further and further inner reaches of the woods, and then ending it with the owl staring back. So cool.
