I Like-a Da Lichen
Grace Brown was hiking in Robinson's Woods very near Casco Bay in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. She saw this beautiful Mandala-like log just minding its own business in the woods and brought back this lovely photo.
Calling in the Green
We've been so beset with snow this winter that we needed to see some green! Here are some remarks about this shot by photographer, Maureen Spagnolo: "It was Victoria, Australia. we were staying in a cottage along the Great Ocean Road on a charming farm with a view of the sea. This was one of the roads near where we stayed. Everywhere was beauteous!"
Queen Anne's Lace on the Edge of Spring
While snowshoeing in rural Maine, Grace Brown took this shot of a lingering sprig of Queen Anne's Lace that survived the snow and sleet and dark of night. Wonderful and fascinating how something so delicate is still standing after months of harsh weather.
Maple Sugar Sunday Time Again
In Maine during the last weekend in March, we celebrate Maple Sugar Sunday. Before we moved here I had never seen a Maple Sugar House up close. The sugar shacks host huge pancake breakfasts, some with live music. I took this shot by the side of the road with my camera phone. (photo by Kimmy Sophia Brown)
Stillness of a Maine Farm Pond in Winter
I took this picture with the camera on my phone while walking in the woods behind our house. Note the tracks on the pond which include wild turkeys and other small animals. Just a sublime morning in the quiet of the natural world. (Kimmy Sophia Brown)
Gold and Snow
Maureen Spagnolo captured this shot of what some might call ordinary rocks and leaves revealed under melting snow. But here is another case of nature's relentless beauty in color and texture.
Snow Blossom
Nature persists in its beauty, in life, death, winter or summer. Maureen Spagnolo caught this flower, persisting in its beauty though changed by snow. Exquisite!
Frozen
This image shot by Maureen Spagnolo epitomizes the sub-zero temperatures we're experiencing in the northeastern United States. She says about this shot: "The freeze creates a spectacular sculpture at Muddy Creek Falls, Swallow Falls State Park, Garrett County, MD."
Woodland Friends
I was walking in Huntley Meadows Park, in Fairfax, Virginia, and saw a deer across the stream, grazing, illuminated by the afternoon sun. I stopped to take a photo. There was a flutter of wings, and a large heron landed close to the deer, and seemed to be greeting him by beating his wings. As I watched, I understood them to be friends. It was a joyful sight. Huntley Meadows Park, the largest park operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority, is located in the Hybla Valley area of Fairfax County, Virginia, south of the city of Alexandria. (Maureen Spagnolo) Click for larger image.
A Haunted Beauty
Maureen Spagnolo says about this shot: "A road less traveled - taking a turn off the main highway can lead to treasures like this one where one just has to stop and look: An abandoned farmhouse with a dusting of snow; a haunted beauty where folks once lived and flourished in Maryland."
