Here are a few shots from my recent wanderings, wherein I reveled in our newly-bestowed winter.

A Buckland barn viewed through a screen of thickly falling snow:

This pair of uncharacteristically-colored silos always makes me smile, paired as they are with the adjacent Family Plot.

As the snow thinned, I got this shot of barn doors wearing their Winter Whites a ways farther up the hill:

This, by the way, is very near where the snow-covered piano sits out under a tree.

And later on in Upper Hawley (on a road which is wisely much  less traveled,) a simple shot of a winter scene with the skies clearing just in time to not produce a sunset shot worth sharing:

Prudence should have turned me back, but the way forward was mostly downhill, so it couldn’t get that bad, right?


I love it when there are no power lines or guard rails, and just enough of a track to assure me that I’m not the Last Living Fool in the world.

That there is some wet snow. Love the second shot.

Glad you liked that, Cuz. It’s iconic Americana, could just as easily have been taken in Wyoming.

I’m trying to see things in Black & White, but failing miserably. Truth be told, there are scenes which present themselves to me as B&W because of their subdued palette, but I prefer them with that slight coloration over a black and white rendition; its like the suggestion of another dimension ups the ante.

The other two shots in this spread are less pure renderings of the shallow-palette conception, but are nonetheless examples of it.

Once again it was the last one that really caught my attention. Then again I do have a soft spot for magical forest roads.

Yeah, that was sweet. There’s something special about a winter ride on a road with no wires overhead – it’s kinda timeless.
