Good Morning,

It’s another warm February day with temperatures in the low 50s. This has to be a winter for the history books. I’m sharing a few photos taken on the Rockery Trail at the Ipswich River  Wildlife Sanctuary in Topsfield, MA. In just a few weeks this landscape will change from brown and gray to green and lush.

When I was in the Navy, I didn’t own a car until the last year of my 4 year stint. I was dependent on buses and friends for transportation.  I had friends in California who gave me a ride for a day in the mountains outside of San Diego. I cannot remember the exact location but the landscapes were stunning.

I was intrigued watching the clouds pour over the ridge line and vaporize when they hit the warmer air. This is one of the few photos I have of the day.

Witt Road, IN Jaffrey NH is one of my favorite spots for photography. It offers a westerly view of Mount Monadnock. Just the spot to catch a sunset.  I took this photo in late afternoon in February, 2013. A typical New England wintertime view.

Wapack and Nutting Trail

Find a Wapack trail guidebook at Amazon.com

In 1923 Frank Robbins and Marion Buck (Davis) established a 21 mile trail from Mount Watatic in Ashburnham, MA to North Pack in Greenfield, NH. There are several side trails off the Wapack. I hiked this path through the ferns in July of 2010.

I walked this trail through the ferns in July of 2010, a very peaceful place.

7 days till Christmas

I was trying to remember where I was when I took this photo. I’m going to guess Singapore in 1971.
I had the opportunity to walk around the older parts of town

Walking along a ridge line in California, watching the clouds break as they flowed over the top
I think those are California poppies just right of the path. The official state flower.

This was the location of a photo field trip last December. It was a lot colder and darker than this photo indicates.
