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."

Thumbnail Acadia Jenna and Zumi Acadia National Park - October Sky
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.
Bishops Garden Tulips Bishop's Garden Tulips
"Bishop's Garden's tulips (National Washington Cathedral) are receiving a helping hand from a visitor - and surely the heavens approve as the extra beam of light seems to imply." Comment from Maureen Spagnolo, who took this lovely shot.

Great Falls Barn
Our photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo, took this dreamy autumn photo a month ago. Even though winter is encroaching upon us now, it is good to savor the beauty of autumn, because it is so fleeting.
Sidwell Friends Tree in Spring
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.
The Beauty of Mama and Baby
We never tire of the beauty of seeing animals with their young in spring. Here is a mother elk and her fawn. May we protect the earth and its families in perpetuity. (Used by permission of via Wikimedia Commons.)
