Grand-daddy redwood in Andrew Molera State Park, California. I lived nearby for 10 years. Love this tree!
On a walk in Ventana Canyon, north of Tucson. Notice the pollen coating the petals on the lower left blossom
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.
Another view of our barn at Jug Hollow in snow.
Robins and Holly Berries
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.
Breaker In Hurricane

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!
At the Foot of a Giant
Capturing the enormity of old growth trees is a challenge. This is a view of the trunk of very large tree in a grove of old growth trees along the Lover’s Lane trail to Sol Duc Falls on the Olympic Penninsula.
