Nature & Weather

I love places where nature has been left unexploited for a long time.
The impact of weather fascinates me. Many of my landscapes share these features.

Hurricane Earl grazed Barnegat Light the night before into the next day. At dusk the sun came out even with Earl still kicking up a strong wind. These girls stayed huddled in their walk, it was that scary!

I’m being sentimental here. I love our barn and the farm is lovely in the winter. Really an attempt to capture snow flakes.

A Natural Lands Trust property. I love the way this tree and the dead grass show you how the wind blows.

We have this huge holly tree by our house. Every winter at some point the birds decide to go for the holly berries. In a couple days they’re all gone. It’s usually the robins who kick it off by showing up in a flock. This time they arrived in a blizzard. The local birds decided to join in as well, see Bluebird and Holly Berries in Animals.

Hurricane Earl grazed Barnegat Light the night before into the next day.  Even at dusk Earl was still kicking up a strong wind, fighting the breakers as they crashed!
