Winter

Photographs of winter.

Many of the phenomena of winter are suggestive of an inexpressible tenderness and fragile delicacy. We are accustomed to hear this king described as a rude and boisterous tyrant; but with the gentleness of a lover he adorns the tresses of Summer.

Henry David Thoreau

Of late, I find I've been publishing photographs on Flickr without taking the time to write essays about them or publish them here.

On the occasion of a beautiful New England snowfall, here's a step back to the former style. Winter: in bits.

Well, there used to be some trap rock on the driveway.

Squirrels,

and cardinals,

and…robins? Oh, my!

So this new camera only works in the cold then! Shouldn't buy cheap ones Norm :-)

Haven't seen snow like that since .... 78!

Might I ask why you were in Belchertown? In 1970 I met a photographer who lived there. I have two kids at UMass Amherst.
