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."

Maureen Spagnolo, traveling north in Maine with her daughter and her dog, snapped this evening moment at Acadia National Park. The edgy mood of ebbing autumn is captured here. One can feel the approaching deep freeze of winter so close, as Jenna and Zumi play on the rocks.
Our friend, the Sidwell Friends tree, is shown here in captivating light and early bloom. This was taken by our dear Photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo, a week ago or so. We've coupled the photo with some verse by Christina Rosetti from her poem Spring.
The sap will surely quicken soon or late,
The tardiest bird will twitter to a mate;
So Spring must dawn again with warmth and bloom,
Or in this world, or in the world to come:
Sing, voice of Spring!
Till I too blossom and rejoice and sing.
Lewis Carroll said “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” Maureen Spagnolo has taken a series of photos of this tree at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C., dressed in different weather and light.
