Early February light lingers on the small wetland area edging the gardens of Concord Greene. It is winter, air is crisp, the sky is blue and the landscape is dry and bare. But that was yesterday. And this is New England. Forecasts say tomorrow it will snow, winds will bluster and a blizzard will transform and transfix the area dumping at least 18 to 24+ inches (45 to 60+ cm) of snow before it blows itself out the following day. With amounts like that, I don’t expect to return to this spot anytime soon. But if I do, I expect I’d find a rather different scene.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.
