Big Pond Mountain
Blue jays near the pond at Andes NY.
Down from the forested hill, near the pond, the sound of blue jays fill the autumn air. Their raucous morning routine juxtaposed against the quiet woodlands. Oct 2019.
Rustling trees at Maurolou Farm at Compton RI.
It’s a breezy day between the edge of the woods and the coastal pasture. Looking out over the water, birds calls punctuate the rustling trees in the warm sun. June 2019.
Coeur d’Alene Ranch
Coeur d’Alene ID
Campfires crackles and crickets at Coeur d’Alene ID.
We spent the day floating in the lake. Now, on top looking out over its moonlit glow, the campfire crackles and nature’s nighttime metronome plays gently. Sep 2019.
Blue Rock Springs
Trickling water at Blue Rock Springs near Napa CA.
Morning coffee on the creek. Down there, the cool water burbles with the frogs, while up here, crows and crickets round out the warming day. Sep 2019.
Mystic Mountain Petrified Camp
Santa Rosa CA
Nocturnal wildlife at Mystic Mountain Petrified Camp at Santa Rosa CA.
The night is cool and there’s a light breeze drifting up through the valley. The nocturnal mountains are alive with creatures, and in the distance, a whinny, a hoot, and a howl. Sep 2019.
Owls Head ME
Lapping waves and gulls at Shoreline Camping at Owls Head ME.
The tide is on the turn. With it, the waves lap along the shore, sending the sandpipers scurrying in a continuous rhythm. A few gulls chirp as they fly overhead and some call from nearby as we sit tideside on a summer’s afternoon. June 2019.
Mini Yosemite in the Hudson Valley
High Falls NY
Nighttime Symphony at Mini Yosemite in the Hudson Valley at High Falls NY.
A thick summer shower blew through here this afternoon. In its wake, a dew fresh dampness and cricketing croaking of the surrounding wooded meadow. The constant pulsing of the creatures and the frogs adding to the full night. August 2019.
Lulling streamside creek at Honesdale PA
Close your eyes. Imagine a warm summer breeze blowing gently. Hear the birds calling out from the nearby woods. Feel the cold creek water flow past you as you stand on its shores with its constant lulling trickle. Open your eyes. July 2019.
Morning bird calls and rushing water at Lumberland NY.
It’s early morning on the banks of the Delaware. There’s still a low cloud hugging the treeline before the streaks of sun will light up the shores and site. The birds are vocal, chip chip chirruping with their close calls and distant replies over the hushing-rushing of the river as it flattens out over the eel weir. July 2019.
Verona Riverside Retreat
Verona Island ME
Early summer morning at Verona Island ME.
Here we are. Past the grassy field and nestled among the trees overlooking the Penobscot River. Birds are chirping and insects buzzing in the light morning breeze before the summer sun sets. July 2019.
