06.13.2022 Texture and Tension (Surface…the good kind)

Sometimes the frog journey provides other subjects.  Yesterday at Moosehorn Pond I heard but saw no frogs.  Not surprising as it was a moderately chilly morning.  However the lily pads are up and one or two had accompanying blooms. This … Continue reading

06.04.2022 Also after the rain but from the archives

05.24.2022 Your slipper, Milady

There is a wooded area in Amherst where I can reliably, usually, find both pink and white lady’s slippers around this time in May.  Sure enough there were plenty of pinks to photograph yesterday but so far not a single … Continue reading
