A Look Back At 2015

As we say goodbye to the year 2015 today, I am posting my annual "favorite images of the year" on this blog post.

The Winter of 2015 is one that went down in the record books here in Southern New England, breaking all sorts of snow total records. I managed to get out a few times with my camera and these are my favorite Winter images.

Spring was especially welcomed and appreciated after the Winter we endured.

We lost my dear Mother In Law in May. It was a very sad time for my family, but we were very blessed to have been able to spend some very special family time at her bed side during her last few weeks. We love her and miss her but know she is in a better place.

It's always a pleasure to visit and photograph the newborn wildlife each Spring.

Summer arrived with an Americana image of my son Nick and Ryleigh taken on the 4th of July. xxxooo

Early morning fog on an August morning at May Pond in Barton VT.

The colors of Fall were about two weeks behind this year, but my favorite Season for photography didn't disappoint. Here is the Strafford Meeting House in Straffod VT.

Jacks Brook in Newark VT

A stand of birch trees along Hazen's Notch in Montgomery VT

Morning reflections along Stiles Pond in Waterford VT

And the final image.....I had to include my favorite subject!

Wishing you and your families a New Year filled with happiness, good health, and peace on Earth.
