Signs of Spring


Signs of spring have been slowly showing since the end of February when Skunk Cabbage flowers started to make an appearance.

And since the winter of 2010-2011 was an especially snowy and cold one, I thought it was important to show by way of photography how nature is renewing itself. Enjoy the spring photography tour!

Silas Condict Park Visit 3.09.10


I got out of work early today and headed right to Morris County’s Silas Condict Park for a nice walk. Optimistically I put on sneakers given that the temperature was like in the sixties. But, alas, not warm enough to melt the barrage of snow that fell recently as evident below.

So my sneakers and socks got a little wet. No biggie especially when wet socks lead to a view like this:

May be a little blurry but well worth it. Took lots of pictures and had a pleasant peaceful walk in the woods.

Watching the sky changes colors was a nice change of pace. It really was good stuff.
