The First Snowdrops


‘’The bed of flowers
Loosens amain,
The beauteous snowdrops
Droop o’er the plain.
The crocus opens
Its glowing bud,
Like emeralds others,
Others, like blood.
With saucy gesture
Primroses flare,
And roguish violets,
Hidden with care;
And whatsoever
There stirs and strives,
The Spring’s contented,
If works and thrives.’


Song of the Sea

This shot was taken in December on an amazing walk along the beach in Sand Point



Timeless sea breezes,
sea-wind of the night:
you come for no one;
if someone should wake,
he must be prepared
how to survive you.

Timeless sea breezes,
that for aeons have
blown ancient rocks,
you are purest space
coming from afar…

Oh, how a fruit-bearing
fig tree feels your coming
high up in the moonlight.

Just Autumn Leaves

This year the splendour of Autumn is particularly beautiful for me – the sowing , the tending, the gathering and harvest-the celebration of Mother Earth who although so fragile can still bless us with her gift of life….

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.”

– Stanley Horowitz

Lucky to get these shots from the plane on route to Venice….

Poschiavo, Switzerland

“All the best things and treasures of this world are not to be produced by each generation for itself; but we are all intended, not to carve our work in snow that will melt, but each and all of us to be continually rolling a great white gathering snow-ball, higher and higher, larger and larger, along the Alps of human power.”

John Ruskin
