The Quiet of Winter



 All is still.  Now and then a fresh breath of wind... here, then gone again.  The call of a distant gull, the whisper of a wavelet reaching the sand is heightened by the surrounding silence.  Peace, perfect peace.

A Valentine's Day Walk


It was a bright sunny day, a good day to walk off some of that cabin fever.  It was cold too with chilling winds.  We really needed to bundle up but it was very worth while just to get out and stretch.  I could feel myself loosening up during our hike through the Inlet Pond Preserve and along the Peconic Bay shoreline.  Nothing could be better than to come back home to share our table and cozy hearth with family.  One day soon we should see the first buds of Spring.

Morning After a Snow Fall


This morning I gazed at the apple orchard as I drank my coffee.  The sun had risen to about 20 degrees above the horizon and cast a lovely light upon the trees and barn.  Finally the coffee started doing it's thing and I realized that I was just sitting there when I could be out in the cold taking a shot or two before the scene changed... the rest of my coffee could wait!
