A Falcon and the Snow

I have been missing a lot of sleep of late, even less than usual.
I worked the morning in Boston and got an earlier train home.
Instead of taking the well needed nap, I headed for the forest.
Along the way, I spotted a large falcon or hawk, not sure.



Mary French reservation in Andover.
Stream, waterfall and boardwalk
with a many prints in the snow.



Looking back at my foot prints.

Walking the plank ahead.

Other paw and claw prints in the snow.





Sun setting behind Field Pond.





Then the sunset from Phillips Academy.

After the Blizzard

After the blizzard ended
I went for a drive into the forest
the winds were quite strong
so the snow was blowing
around quite a bit.




The road through the forest.


Stream and snow covered banks.



Collins Pond

Field Pond.

Wind sculptured snow.
