Debussy's Sunset ...

“There is nothing more musical than a sunset.”
                         ~ Claude Debussy
                              ~ 1862-1918
Sun and snow are in harmony as their beauty crescendos into a stunning winter sunset on an early February day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers ...

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without words –
And never stops at all.”
    ~ “Hope Is The Thing With Feathers”
       ~ Emily Dickinson
         ~ 1830-1886
Spring – and the hope it brings – was just around the corner when I captured this white feather that landed softly among the brown winter branches on a mid-March afternoon at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania, a reminder that hope is always in the wind and appears where you least expect it.

Cute As A Button ...

“A simple act of kindness and compassion towards a single animal may not mean anything to all creatures, but will mean everything to one.”

My favorite white-tailed deer button buck is cute as a button enjoying an apple during a January sunset in the park as his mama doe stood closeby.

It was 15 degrees with sub-zero windchills when I captured this sweet image, but it warmed my heart to see Buttons – as I call him – enjoy his apple!
