Afternoon snow

Late afternoon sunlight on fresh snow

Going kind of minimalist on you all today. The late afternoon sunlight yesterday created subtle shadows and colors on the fresh snowfall in our front field. This about catches the mood.

Open Water

Calm, open water at Shelburne beach

We went down to Shelburne yesterday to check out an interesting exhibit of rug-hooked renderings of Tarot cards at the All Souls Interfaith center (highly recommended!) Afterwards we drove down to the Shelburne town beach to catch the view. As one might expect from this winter, the lake was wide open. I liked the way the slips of ice had covered the rocks in the foreground.

Summer memory

A piece of dried hydrangea on fresh snow

A bit of a summer memory—this piece of dried hydrangea had been broken off by the weekend’s strong winds to cast its shadow on the fresh snow.

Café au Lait

Heavy rains on Sunday filled Fargo Brook with muddy, café au last colored water. Here’s a brief study of flowing water at slow-ish shutter speeds (Panasonic Lumix GM5, Lumix 14-140mm lens at various lengths, ISO 200, various apertures, 1/15″ exposures.)
