Four Seasons in One Day

October 25, 2015

FloatingLeaves2015Four seasons in one day
Lying in the depths of your imagination
Worlds above and worlds below
The sun shines on the black clouds hanging over the domain

Even when you’re feeling warm
The temperature could drop away
Like four seasons in one day

Smiling as the shit comes down
You can tell a man from what he has to say
Everything gets turned around
And I will risk my neck again, again

You can take me where you will
Up the creek and through the mill
Like all the things you can’t explain
Four seasons in one day

It doesn’t pay to make predictions
Sleeping on an unmade bed
Finding out wherever there is comfort there is pain
Only one step away
Like four seasons in one day

At the end of 2014 through the summer of 2015 I split my time living between Dummerston in southern Vermont on the weekends, and the Morrisville/Stowe/Montpelier/Barre area of northern Vermont where I lived and worked during weekdays. The one advantage of this chaotic period of my life was that I had the opportunity to photograph areas of my state I had either not visited for many years or had never seen in the 30 years I have lived in Vermont. Obviously, if you look back on the dates of my blog posts, I did not find the time to post photos for many months.
 .
This is a bit of a catch up: Four Seasons in One Day. Photographs from around Vermont covering the four seasons spanning the autumn of 2014 through the summer of 2015. Future posts will include a focus on waterfalls, hikes and skyscapes before I launch into sharing my experience here in the Republic of Georgia where I currently reside and will remain until at least the spring of 2016.
Enjoy!

Rt30_in_Snow2015
The winter of 2015 was harsh, as those of you from New England who are reading this blog know. For me, it was a winter of spending a lot of time on the road commuting. Driving conditions were often difficult, but frequent snowfall made for welcomed opportunities to hop from my car and photograph.

MorrisvilleWindSnow2015
One very cold and blustery evening, driving to Morrisville on Vermont rt. 100. The wind swept swaths of snow across the road and bit at my hands and face as I snapped this photograph quickly with my iPhone.

AmmonoosucRiver2015
This photo is a ‘cheat’ because it is not Vermont. This is the Ammonoosuc River in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. In an upcoming post I will feature photographs from an early September hike with my partner up the Ammonoosuc Ravine trail to Mts. Monroe and Washington, two of the eight mountains that comprise the scenic and historic Presidential range.

  1. Love your photographs. Echo lake looks inviting. Hope I don’t have to teach you how to swim the next time I see you. Hope your work in Georgia is going well and that you are happy and healthy.
