Slushy March evening


Spring seemed to come deceptively early this year, but a warm February turned into a cold March full of slush and ice. Here, we look down an empty side street in the evening as light snow falls on warm pavement beneath the glow of old streetlights.

Hilltop redbuds


Atop a hill in Patapsco State Park, in the shade of old beeches, oaks, and tulip trees, redbuds spring to life. Their purple flowers add a flash of color to the earth-toned forest as late winter light streaks through the trees.

Holiday Highway Travel


Around Christmas and New Years, millions of people head out on the roads, journeying to see friends and family. Here, we see several travelers making this journey along a modest highway through snowy fields and median-strip woodlands. The low-angle sun, marking the end or beginning of the day, adds some drama and beauty to what would normally be a relatively forgettable scene. For those wondering, this highway has a median-strip of trees, so the opposite lanes of traffic would be off to the left, and are thus not readily visible.
