The Remains Of The May. May 29, 2011

Before it goes, May has a few things to say, “captured,” as the kids say, along the way.

Delicate ferns  cling to a shale wall over a stream in Bernardston:

Disoriented Dentinum  adjust to life on a toppled log:

I like the almost-fractal nature of that little scene, with the little shelving fungi resurrecting their inverted progenitors by abandoning their past and seeking the light.

Hey, just a cosmic  sentiment to go with a trippy photograph of mushrooms.

Here’s another shot of the Natural Bridge gorge in Clarksburg:

That one is interesting to me despite a lack of context; there’s no obvious scale, leaving it open to a viewer’s interpretation.

A couple more from the flatlands down below Northampton.

Puddles on Harrowed Ground:

…and dandelions, albeit gone by, at dusk:

Meanwhile, back up in the hills, a local farm settles in for the night, oblivious to the fire in the sky above it:

And, of course, a sunset/moonrise to end the day:

Barton’s Cove on the Connecticut river, from the Erving side.

Well that’s about it for May, though  I won’t promise that something else from the files won’t pop up if it catches my fancy.

See Y’all in June.

This is as beautiful as any photo essay I have ever seen, and I’m counting the old days in magazines (do they still have magazines?) like Life and Look and National Geographic. You’ve got the photos and you certainly have got the words. Y’all in the east sure can talk some fancy.

I love the fungus that looks like a fractal. And the sky at sunset. I love them all.

Mr. Runt –

You devil – only you can make a rock formation look sexy-dirty. Many blessings to you on Memorial Day,

Amazing how quickly May just flew by! Beautiful pics as always, Ralph.

Can’t wait to see what’s in store for June. 🙂

Thanks, everyone. I’m looking forward to June as well!

Hey, the corn field under the clouds came out great! I like all of these.

Also, did you notice that the front-most rock on the Natural Bridge’s right side looks like half a face? A troubled one. In a hat. Saw it right away;)

As always, gorgeous work.

On second thought, I best like those red silos under pink-gray sky…

Nice shots as always but I also particularly liked the Disoriented Dentinum. It’s amazing how life adjusts.

Ursi, I hadn’t noticed the rock face before, but now that you’ve mentioned it, I can’t see anything else in that photo!! 🙂

And I’m glad you liked some of these.

Susan, yes, the resilience of Mother Nature gives me some hope in these rapidly deteriorating times!
