Goodbye Autumn

On this last day of autumn 2016, nature put on a display worth donning extra layers for  along Sucker Brook at the Greater Lovell Land Trust’s Wilson Wing Moose Pond Bog Preserve.


Morning light provided magical moments filled with otherworldly beauty.


In response to constant movement and changing temperatures,


original beauty knew no end.


While brook smoke danced along sunbeams,


ice sculptures formed with the flow.


Hoar frost brought diversity of visions . . .


in detailed formations and . . .


intricate presentations.


Nothing was left untouched by the hand of the artist.


Before our eyes the seasons transitioned. Light. Shadows. Textures. Colors. Layers.

Goodbye autumn. Welcome winter.
