The Barn Owl in Fall

with one comment

I almost feel bad, taking so many photos of this guy. It’s too easy, you know? There he sits, in the same place in his cage, day after day (only once have I seen him in a different corner)… but then I see colors like this behind him, and it’s hard to resist pressing the shutter.

The Icicles in March

My favorite part of winter (besides ice skating) is the icicles that hang from the eaves of our house. Sure, they can be dangerous if they fall on you while melting, but they look darn good doing it!

The House in Silhouette

Sometimes here on this blog I get carried away, and forget that nature doesn’t mean just wildlife. People can connect with nature through a variety of ways, from the sand on the beach to a blazing fall sunset.

The Leaves in the Trees (Part II)

leave a comment »

Who says you have to go upstate or to Vermont or New Hampshire to catch some great foliage? We have tons right here on Long Island (as the backs of many Long Islanders who have to rake can attest).

A visit to Wildwood State Park up on the North Shore (read: rocky beaches, the Long Island Sound instead of the Atlantic Ocean) yielded a few beautiful shots, including this tree lined camping ground.

The Woods in Early Fall

leave a comment »

The same magical spot as seen in the Forest for the Trees, just a little bit earlier. It never fails to amaze me how much changes in a month. I’m sure when I go back next month (if it’s not too cold!) the leaves will be completely bare, the trees mere skeletons amidst the underbrush.

The Leaves in the Trees (for now, anyway)

leave a comment »

So it looks like fall is here in full swing, and it’s not going anywhere. We’re lucky here on Long Island to have missed that snowstorm that those upstate got hit with (snow! Three days before Halloween!).

For now, the leaves are turning their reds and golds, the air is crisp but bearable, and the sun is not yet setting at 4:30. So get out there, and enjoy it.
