With the first storm of winter arriving in New England, I took advantage of the snow and foliage being together in the same scenes. The trick was to find decent foliage and a worthy subject before the snow melted.
I was fortunate to find a number of excellent subjects. In addition to looking for snow and foliage, I started to look for agricultural scenes. New England is full of pastoral scenes. They can still be found in Eastern Massachusetts if you know where to look for them.
I was pleasantly surprised to find an old farm that I had not visited for many years, had cows on it again. They were making their way through a forest with wonderfully backlit foliage. While photographing the cows, I also saw some bluebirds and some yellow rumped warblers. What a great morning!
