Whitetails In The Winter Mist ...



“I please myself with the graces of the winter scenery, and believe that we are as much touched by it as by the genial influences of summer.”
                      ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
                                ~ 1803-1882

Four beautiful white-tailed deer does show off their whitetails in the winter mist as a light rain falls in the late afternoon in the park.

Buck In The Falling Snow ...

“… I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

           ~ “The Peace of Wild Things”
                   ~ Wendell Berry
                        ~ born 1934
         ~ American novelist, poet, environmental activist, cultural critic & farmer

A beautiful four point white-tailed deer buck strikes a majestic pose as a peaceful hush sweeps across the field as a midwinter snowfall begins cascading from the sky in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured in the park in the late afternoon of a February day.

Just Me And My Apple ...




“One touch of nature 
            makes the whole world kin.”
             ~ William Shakespeare
                         ~ 1564-1616
My favorite white-tailed deer doe pauses from eating her apple in the snow before happily finishing it on a winter’s evening in the park.

I’ve been blessed to photograph this doe and her fawns since 2012, and it’s a true joy to me personally and as a photographer.
