I went out from Scotch to Mansion Beach and back again during the last big snow storm. Wilson and Molly as you will see, were happy about it. I loved the quiet and the way the snow made a blanket on everything, even on the sand, right up to the water. I also loved the way the dense falling snow obscured my sight. The beach will be covered in people and color and heat and action soon enough, but on this snowy day, I could only see the suggestions of things - just some shapes and shadows and the falling snow and the softest light. I thought I would let the pictures stand for themselves, and let you enjoy them in peace except to tell you two things: I am working on making these and other images into a children's E-book. I hope to have it done in a few weeks. And also, it should come with a warning because the early indication from children who have been kind enough to read it for me, is that it makes them want to get a puppy.
