fall land landscapes color

Above/Below

The sky above, the land below.

The land in which I live is rich with natural beauty. To the south of me I have the great wilderness of the Adirondack mountains, a view of the (not often seen in this latitude Northern Lights to my north.) To the east I have historic Lake Champlain ( home of the legendary Champy) and the Green Mountains of Vermont. Landscapes and waterscapes gleaming with majesty.

I have witnessed the raging Saranac river foaming with the water of a hundred year flood partially incurred by hurricane Irene. As I child, I saw the forest bend and break to the fury of the Ice Storm of ’98. I stood capturing the smoke of the Canadian fires roll onto Lake Champlain. It’s also cold here for more of the year than not, so when spring and summer ( in particular ) arrive, I am out to appreciate the treasures the seasons change brings to me. This is a collection of those travels.
