Sunrise over North Adams:

Hand-held in low light at ISO 3200; sorry ’bout the grain.

After work, high on Mount Greylock, I came across a small stagnant pool:

…and made something else of it entirely.  I like the way the elements of this one came together, with the only sunlit vegetation in the scene suggesting a blazing sun and the trees seemingly being re-leaved.

Higher, I caught this detail of icicles adorning a road-cut:

The surface was decorated with a strange, raised crazing which looked alive, and I dug it.

I hope you dig it too.

All shots with my 16-35mm L-series lens which, surprisingly, focused down to about 8″ for that last shot!

A back road:

A quiet brook:

Fallen leaves:

Amen.

Because that’s what’s happening around here, and when it’s done, it won’t happen again until next Autumn.

Funny how that works…

Parking along the road:

Pretend I didn’t drive on the wrong side of the road to get that shot.

Plainfield Pond in Full Regalia:

…With Leaves and stuff:

Here’s a farmhouse up in Drury, a part of Florida.  It’s way up in the hills:

This was taken with the sun real low, but not low enough to be ideal, and the colors and depth suffered for it, but it’s still got something going which prompted me to stop and snap it.

Trust me, the bigger version is better.

Hey, more later.  Gotta go eat.

The Wind Blows November 19, 2007

Leaving the house today in the blue-gray November light, amidst a swirl of snowflakes and the rustle of leaves, I saw a stark sight, simple, signifying a season, swaddling a dream, a still-life of causality and consequence.

The wind blows,

The flowers fall.

The wind blows,

The leaves fall.

The wind blows,

The flowers dry.

The wind blows,

The snows fly.

The wind blows.

And this Season also turns.

red-moss-and-leaves.jpg

Leaves, crunchy, edges curled, covering fern fronds folded amidst the moss.

Upstanding, straight-backed trees broad-casting the fruits of their season,

Snatching the carbon and the water molecules and the passing sunlight,

Night and day, day and night, ’till their little solar panels,

In absolutely perfect planned obsolescence,

Cut loose, cast off, cascade down,

Down, delivering themselves

And their carbon cargo

To their resting place

Beneath a blanket

Of white.
