Three Hundred and Eight!

Last post of the day, I promise! I tried to integrate the cooler tones I was seeing outside into this image. Simultaneously, there was a documentary on a mountain range in California which I found inspiring and used as a reference tool. I love the mountains and cannot wait for my hiking season to begin. I only hike from Spring to mid fall as I do not own the winter gear but have always been in awe of those who are brave enough to go out. They must experience such quiet calm moments along the way. When hiking the mountains I find that my favorite moments are when I can hear nothing else but the wind passing through the trees. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Ninety-Five!

For those of you that are not aware, New England has had an astronomical amount of snow, 6 feet in two weeks to be exact. Having grown up here I consider myself a true New Englander but this would test a lot of people. I will say that I have had more snow days in the past two weeks than ever before in a season granted if we were to really get into it, I just work for a better company now that seems to understand that my job is not worth risking my life. Thank you current employer! Anyway, this image started with a rant about snow which quickly developed into something else. In the process of clearing out my house of snow I have started sculpting the snow into unnatural shapes but there is something about the idea of taking what is natural and tweaking it a bit to make you stop and question whether it could actually have occurred naturally or had a helping hand. I always think back to playing at the beach or in the woods where out of human habit we pile things up or lay things down. After a while it become part of the surroundings but there is still an unnatural quality to it. Enough. Enjoy and see you next time.
