Winter Woods



On this last day of February 2015 I took a morning drive to Letchworth State Park about 50 miles south of Rochester, NY.  The weather, though bitter cold, was calm and sunny.  Here are a few shots of the woods near the falls.  

The photo of the bird, in case you didn't notice, isn't a "real" bird.  A bulletin board in the park had some bird photos tacked up for several months.  I had seen them the last time I was in the park.  

Today, I stuck one on a tree nearby, and left it there for others to see. Just for fun!

Serenity: A Fleeting Vision

"The aftermath of a 
brutal winter storm 
shouts with silent serenity.

Listen thankfully to its
fleeting vision."

Winter Break In Photos


At  the  Lamberton  Conservatory  in 
Highland Park, Rochester, NY,  there 
were few  blooms.  But  the few that 
were  there were refreshing, and the 
warmth  of  the  conservatory was  a 
welcome relief from the winter cold. 

Here are  a  few photos  I took today.

Winter's Affair

frost 


the trees have no leaves. 
I gather my lust in the 
winter sky. 

along your horizon, 
sunlight dances to its 
frozen demise.
