A small twig sapling sprung from the snow creates a fleeting impression

While skiing up to Bald Hill at the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Area yesterday, I came across several places where small twig saplings had been bent beneath the deep snow. As the warm March sun went to work on south facing sections, the twigs had sprung loose  to create fleeting impressions in the snow. Kind of a second shadow.

Cellophane Water

A few years ago, I stumbled across what I’ve dubbed the “cellophane effect” when shooting moving water. I found myself exploring it again a bit the other day as I took some photos along Fargo Brook.

The key to achieving the effect is a fairly slow shutter speed (~1/25″) and shooting with the sun in front of you so that the light is bouncing directly off the water towards the lens. The light traces fine squiggly lines across the moving water.

Bluebird!

Our first bluebird of the season!

No sooner had I cleaned out the nesting boxes in our front field this morning, than a male bluebird came to inspect! Welcome back!
