The year is ending. Hard to believe I’ve been photographing the seasons for this entire year.
December 2015 looks exactly like November 2015. No snow (yay). And it’s warm. Most days have been springlike. Cold at night, but balmy by day. I’m just fine with this, even though I know it could change any minute.
So the ground is clear, the air is warm … and winter has not quite arrived. Last year, it didn’t show up until the end of January, so I’m cautiously optimistic. I guess we’ll see.
Please do visit Cardinal Guzman and see his amazing photographs as well as the galleries of the other fabulous participants of this year-long challenge.
Good Hanukkah to all!
Winter is my off-season, but it isn’t really off-season if, for example, you love skiing or ice skating. Summer — not my favorite season — is very popular. Picnics, barbecue, swimming, and hanging on the beach. To me, beach equals sun-stroke and third degree burns, with sand in unmentionable places.
Autumn is New England in its full glory. If we have an “in” season, autumn is it. So … what’s left?
Whitins Pond – November
March and April. After the snow is gone, but before the leaves and flowers appear.
Blackstone River – Early March
Late November and usually December. When the bright leaves are gone, but the snow hasn’t arrived.
November on the pond
December on the farm
Otherwise, New England and our valley are always in season.
