Supermoon Eclipse

At the risk of being the 10,000th WordPresser to post photos of tonight’s eclipse, here are two of mine. I haven’t gone through the entire set yet, just grabbed two that looked promising.

Almost to full eclipse.

The full eclipse. From our vantage point in Quincy, Mass., just south of Boston, there was a glow on the bottom right throughout the entire process of full eclipse. Exaggerated by the camera, as well.

As always, to see the photos larger, click on them. Thanks for viewing!

The Birds are Back

We’re finally seeing signs of spring in the Boston area – most of the snow has melted, and the ospreys, cardinals and snowy egrets have returned to the marsh. I’ve heard rumors of blooming crocuses, but haven’t seen any sign of them yet. While we wait, enjoy this picture of a snowy egret coming in for a landing. As always, click the picture to make it larger.

Snow Melt on the Marsh

With temperatures in the 50s on Wednesday, we were able to get out for a short walk, and enjoy the sight of a small amount of bare ground. This photo is of snow melting into the portion of the marsh which runs back and forth into Rock Island Cove.
