Still Learning To See

A walk in the woods

The weather yesterday would have had a forecaster jumping around, switching hats and re-writing the script at least a hundred times: cold, warm, rain, sun…everything but snow flurries and, importantly, black flies!

It was a lovely day for a walk to Chickering Bog and a great day to seize the moment—whatever the light—as a photographer.

Spring has been unfolding slowly in Vermont, all the better to take time to see the changes that come daily.

Curiously, I did not make a single photograph of the bog itself. There will be many more visits! A favorite view, however, is on the way back out where a classic pastoral scene greets the eye. I hope all of you reading can find time to get out and see and smell spring arriving.

    Real treasure, John–love how you capture light in your photography. The greens of spring are so newborn and varied–and I’ve never seen a pitcher plant!! Thanks so very much 🙂
