Signs of Spring


Signs of spring slowly in February when Skunk Cabbage flowers start to appear.

I think it is important to show how nature is renewing itself after winter. 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.
