On this Columbus Day, the 600 acre Ravenswood Park in Gloucester showed off its back-lit pines and hemlocks. Go there any time for a walk, trail run, or short nordic ski trip.
At Pawtuckaway State Park in southern New Hampshire. Today I felt like returning to my black & white roots.

Tonight in the woods not far from where I live, I found a secret patch of highbush blueberries sporting their lovely pink-white flowers. I’ll be back in late July to pick the fruit! As I set up my camera a beaver splashed his mighty tail and patrolled his pond, apparently unaware of my presence.

This evening when I took two visitors from California for a walk through the Appleton Farms & Grass Rides in Ipswich, MA, one of them said, “this is paradise.” Perhaps it is—especially when home is a Los Angeles suburb. To me, the forested landscape of this 300 year old farm is sublime. Visit this place, and you too will discover a refuge lost in time.

Although it’s a mere 12 miles from Boston, the forest protected by Breakheart Reservation is lush and resplendent in late summer green.

As a young child I loved playing beside the brooks and rivers where our family camped and hiked in the forests of New York and Jersey. When I discovered Eliot Porter and Ansel Adams as a teenager, those streams became one of my favorite subjects, and they remain so to this day.
