View from the hill

Coindre Hall, Long Island. Thanksgiving weekend 2011

Panoramic shot of the great room taken by Jake Gorst at the movie shoot yesterday. All those hard lines and angles suddenly transformed into soft curves. How cool is that? Very cool, is the answer. Very cool indeed.

A Night at the Beach

Wednesday evening: race round the bay. From Lloyd Harbor

to the Long Island Sound

to Eaton's Neck

and back to Huntington harbor

On the bay

Finally, the rain stopped

The sun came out-and so did the bunny

the sun set

and set again

and again.
Sunsets on the bay. It never gets old.

In the yard: Saturday Morning in Spring

Dark green Hinoki cypress against a summer blue sky

Blood red buds on a Norwaay Spruce laden with new cones

White Dogwood flowers behind the dark spruce

Village Walk

Just a morning stroll-turn right at the purple magnolia

spot the bluejay in the conifer

snap the honking goose on the pond

straight on to the beach

and spy this guy in the yard back home

Squirrel Proof

As in proof of squirrel not squirrel deterrent. I have been waiting patiently since fall for the return of the vanishing squirrel, this breakfast time I got lucky and I see he/she did too.

Looking Forward

This one I'm going to save to remind me, in July (when it's 100F with 90% humidity), that this too shall pass.

Winter: Scenes from Home

Don't try to seduce us with you beautiful icicle frame, winter

or reward us with blue skies and early morning sunlight reflected on the treetops

The reality is extra foot or so of snow on the terrace

and a giant snow wall... with more forecast for the weekend.

Does this give you any idea how cold it is on Long Island? Given a sunset this pretty I would normally be dashing down to the beach to document the free show but when it's this cold, 22F (-6c) but feels like 7F (-14c), I'd rather shoot it from inside!

Ice Curtain

it's gorgeous outside but brutally cold, luckily I can shoot the sun reflected on these icicles through the west-facing dining room window. Click for full effect!

Long Shadows

The angle of the sun going down behind the hill opposite the house casts deep early afternoon shadows at this time of year.

Snowy view from behind the cooktop...

Pretty - if you aren't traveling in or out of NY area airports

Maple leaves on a neighbor's lawn - just before the landscapers tidy up for the winter. Enjoy!
