Back of card Sample

Have you ever wondered what a road would look
like covered in leaves during the autumn season?
As I listened to the sound of my footsteps rustling
through the leaves I decided to stop and go no further.
Should I follow the yellow leaf road? What is beyond
the yellow leaf road?

Rogers Park Pond Card

Connecticut Ocean Beach Card

 

Back of card

An Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly finally decided to
sit long enough and gently spread her wings for me to
photograph. As I thanked her for being so kind, I thought
to myself, I have never seen Rogers Park Pond look
so lovely as it did on this day. I guess if you
keep revisiting a place long enough you will
eventually see just how special some places
 really are. 05.30.04

I love the mornings after an evening snowfall. Especially
when the snow is so light & fluffy that its able to pile high even on the littlest branches. The Still River off Triangle Street in Danbury. So peaceful & tranquil,
that, for a long while, I have forgotten how cold I was.

The fog rolls in off Candlewood Lake at Danbury Town Park. A lone tree in a snowy landscape. A single pair of footprints that seem to fade away into the distant unknown. Am I alone?

To see the longest waterfall drop of 70 feet you have to follow the Kent Falls trail. 1/4 mile long with a 250 foot vertical climb. But its the other smaller series of waterfalls along the trail, that to me, are the most intriguing. A very special place.
