Along the Trail in the Spring Woods

Off in the woods in early spring to photograph the fresh new wildflowers, I love the woods itself, damp, muddy, brown and green, the sunshine suddenly muted by young leaves, the very air a pale green, the water far below running fast with spring rains.

Morning Brilliance For Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on a perfect sunny May morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. […]

It’s time to […]

Spring Morning Leaves

Spring has reached that tipping point where there are more leaves in all shades of green than winter’s stark branches and twigs. I love winter, but I welcome spring, and this view out my kitchen window is familiar each April. It looks like I’m in the deep woods, but it’s just the line of trees […]

Spring Cleaning, a Little Magic and Memories in the Air

I regularly passed the backyard of an old farmhouse near me, and was drawn at first by the forsythia, which was right on the edge of the road as I drove past, then as I slowed down I saw the colorful hanging laundry, always a favorite subject. That hazy spring sunlight with long shadows on […]
