Sunrise on the Hills Sunrise on the Hills
This beautiful shot by Maureen Spagnolo brings to mind these linesfrom the poem "Sunrise on the Hills", by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

"I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales."

Dame Autumn Hath a Mournful Face Dame Autumn Hath a Mournful Face
This wonderful image painted by British artist, John Atkinson Grimshaw, (September 6, 1836 - October 13, 1893) depicts the emotional shift in the season and gives homage to the fairy kingdom that we wish to honor and thank as well. (Image in public domain)
Goodbye to Summer, Welcome Autumn! Goodbye to Summer, Welcome Autumn!
This shot taken by Caleb Austin (of Bruington, Virginia,) typifies the free feeling of a summer day. We thought it nicely illustrates the final plunge of summer, before we welcome in the fall weather. Ranin Brown is jumping into the Saco River in Buxton Maine. Geronimo!
Leaves of Grass Singing 'Neath the Clouds! Leaves of Grass Singing 'Neath the Clouds!
It's as if photographer, Caleb Austin, of Bruington, VA., waited all night to catch a second picture of green hands praising summer!
Leaves of Grass, or is it Wheat? Leaves of Grass, or is it Wheat?
Here's a lovely photograph taken by photojournalist, Caleb Austin, from Bruington, Virginia. It looks like the hands of green people giving praise to the glory of a starry night!
Tranquil View of the Bishop's Garden Tranquil View of the Bishop's Garden
Photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo, has captured a series of restful images (coming here soon!) of the Bishop's Garden at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. It might be worth becoming a bishop if the job comes with a garden like this!
Irving Fishgill Stands at Atttention For His School Portrait Irving Fishgill Stands at Attention
For His School Portrait
The rain in Maine is driving us insane! We feel as if we're swimming with the fishes here in Portland after the continuous downpours. A photo of a fish seems appropriate, and this little fellow looks as if he's posing. Our friend, Jacob Williams, who is skilled in the art of Aquascaping, took this shot at his home in Mumbai, India. Click here to see more of his aquarium art.
Jaunty Springtime Birdhouse Jaunty Springtime Birdhouse
A jaunty birdhouse, a fence of flowers, fluffy clouds, and cathedral spires in the distance - what a happy image of spring! Taken by our own photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo of Washington, DC. (for a bigger look, click on image)
Single Blue Blossom Single Blue Blossom
The face of a single, blue periwinkle -- (aka Vinca major)-- so exquisite in its simplicity. Taken by Photovoyance columnist, Maureen Spagnolo, of Washington, DC.
A Very Merry Unbirthday to You! A Very Merry Unbirthday to You!
A most sumptuous birthday feast in the meadow for our friend Lesley Austin - photo by her son, Caleb Austin. So that nobody feels jealous and we can all celebrate, we'd like to remind everyone of the Mad Hatter's tea party in the Disney film version of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland:

Mad Hatter:
Ah, but there are
Three hundred and sixty four

March Hare:
Precisely why we're gathered here to cheer

Why then today's my unbirthday too!
