From the Portraits of Spring series
My fascination with spring ephemerals is fleeting and intense. Each spring brings with it a new sense of urgency, and an opportunity to capture an essential image of these early flowering wildflowers that grow here in Southern Washington county. With the Trillium and Trout Lily, seven years at the minimum before setting a flower and then, in a week to ten days, it is all said and done. To be a witness to this fleeting display of beauty and grace is a privilege indeed.
These photgraphs were made in 2008 in the woods and along the Battenkill in Greenwich, NY.
