The Winter of 2016 began with a New Years weekend trip to my beloved VT. One of my favorite images that I took that weekend is this landscape taken as the sun was setting on what was a very cloudy day.
This next image was taken in February during a snowstorm in my hometown of Abington MA. I drove down to our local pond (Island Grove) at the beginning of the storm before the roads got too bad and captured this seagull in flight getting ready to make a landing.
The Spring of 2016 brought many photo opportunities. Here is a Herring making it's way upstream to spawn at Whiman's Pond in Weymouth MA.
This next image was also taken in April at the Estuary in Weymouth. I am happy to tell you that I was contacted by a consultant representing the town of Weymouth, and I have given my permission for this image of an osprey in flight to be used on a message board at the start of a new walking trail system that is being built at the estuary.
The highlight of the Spring was the birth of our Grandson Henry. This image was taken just after Henry was born, as he was doing skin to skin contact with his mom.
What can I say about the fox den in my backyard this Spring! I got so much enjoyment from this family.
And here is "Mama". She and I had a wonderful understanding of each other.
The Summer of 2016 brought some opportunities to do some night sky photography. Here is the Milky Way reflecting in May Pond in Barton VT.
My friend Wayne lighting the night sky with a flashlight at Windswept Farm in Barton VT as the Milky Way was rising over the gothic barn.
This was another fun evening of shooting the Milky Way over the Foster Covered Bridge in Cabot VT.
From the country to the city.......this is the Zakim Bridge in Boston
Sunflowers in August....
Which brings us to my favorite season of Fall. Here is Lake Willoughby in Westmore VT on a dreary drizzly Fall day.

The birth of our Grandson Stevie was the highlight of the Fall. I love the happiness on big sister Ryleigh's face in this picture and I just want to bite Stevie's cheeks!
Finally, November of 2016 bright the Super Moon. Here it is rising over Hull MA.
I wish you peace, love, good health, and happiness in 2017. Thank you so much for following this blog throughout the year.
