These two majestic trees once stood proudly on a roadside field at Moose Hill Farm. My husband brought me by them one day and told me, "When I used to work the midnight shift, I would drive by these trees and I thought they represented us growing old together." I love this guy!
Many times I had it in my head to go there again with my camera to photograph the trees. That day came and I set out to do so. I felt wounded when I arrived. One of the trees had been heavily damaged by a storm, I assume and was almost half gone. I couldn't take the picture. I was too sad. What did this mean for us? Well, I am glad to say, we are fine. Actually, we are better than ever.
I am grateful that my friend and fellow photo enthusiast Peter Higgins, photographed them before one of them met its demise.
This past Saturday morning, I was out and about looking for things to photograph and I went back to Moose Hill Farm, as I often do. It is a wonderful place to photograph Nature. Here is the lone tree as it stands today with its companion stump.
The tree casts a great shadow.
Below are some other photos that I have taken over the years in this beautiful spot.
There was one year that there were white cows here. This was taken one early, foggy morning before I went to church.
Here, I had moved a tree branch back a bit to get a better picture of a field and I discovered this.
Nature is amazing! Look at the artistry in this hive.
It was too cold for this hive to be active on Saturday when I took this.
As I was leaving on Saturday, I tuned around to head back to my car and noticed the clear view of Boston over the roof tops of the buildings on the property. Such a beautiful place located so close to the bustle of Boston. I love my town.
After 31 years of teaching, I have decided to retire and start a new chapter of my life as a photographer. It has been my passion for about 7 years now.
