The calm before the storm

Winter returned to Vermont with a vengeance this afternoon, so tomorrow's pictures will undoubtedly feature lots of the white stuff. This morning, though, it was overcast but not yet precipitating, enabling me to photograph some stuff that I suspect won't even be visible tomorrow.

First up, some more spalted wood:

Yet more fungus. In the first image, I liked how the white growth stood out so sharply against the darkness of the bark:

I don't even want to know how many times I walked past this without noticing it:

While eating breakfast this morning, I managed to take this shot through the sliding-glass door of a squirrel scratching an itch:

This is what it looked like behind the museum when I left work at 5; all of the snow you see on the trees accumulated in a bit less than four hours:

Finally, Kaylee surveys the landscape:


  1. Love, love, love! Especially Kaylee. :-)

  2. The snow-covered trees and bridge are idyllic!
