Salt Marsh Blues in Maine


A new season is on the horizon. 

Thaw browns ground, uncovering last year’s leaves.

Sun paints the fields a tender green,

And flowers maples against cold blue.

Reflected on still water, sky becomes sea. 

A lonely marsh calls to migrating birds.

The woods whisper of warmer days, 

Leading us toward spring.


Note: I'll be taking a 2-week blog vacation. 
Next post on May 2.

So. You are every bit as wonderful a photographer as you are a painter. Lovely photos!

Thanks so much for letting me know about leaving off the credits for my last paragraph. I had a devil of a time with blogger yesterday - huge separations between paragraphs, type sizes all over the place. Very frustrating. So I just overlooked the last information.
It was from My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell and the dress was from Etro.

Have a good two weeks!!

Makes me want to walk right into the screen and up those paths.
Hope you have a great time off.

I love that line "The woods whisper of warmer days." This is a great poem for spring.
Enjoy your break!

Love, love those photos. You've captured spring's soul, which is not an easy thing to do. Many thanks. That was a visual treat. Have a lovely break with your family.

Greetings from London.

I do like the first shot, its scene and perspective. It makes me feel inspired, I should get up and take off for a walk immediately!! :-)
