Farm Wagon in Winter

The corn harvest long over, the wagon stands at the edge of the field on Airport Hill in Roxbury. Rain and mud have characterized this unusually mild winter. But ice and snow are on the way.

Harbor View, Camden, Maine

I discovered a little park that few visitors to Camden seem to know about, and it offered a very different view of the harbor. The angle of the tree in the foreground and the distant array of boats offered an idyllic water scene enhanced by the magic of infrared.

The Captain Arthur Fournier, Belfast Harbor, Maine

This tugboat in Belfast Harbor offered me the perfect chance to combine my fascination with infrared photography with my love for boats in general and tugs in particular. The curved lines of the boat played nicely against the straight lines of the highway bridge in the distance.

Half-Cut Field

The first haying is underway around here, and this half-cut field caught my eye in the late afternoon light. If you take a close look, you might note this year’s resident perched atop the wren house in the foreground. The black-and-white version also intrigues me. You can decide.

Great Egret in Flight

This egret gave me the opportunity to get close to it before taking off. It made a direct pass in front of me as I panned to capture the image you see here.

Wheezie — July 20, 2003 – February 5, 2018

It  is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of my longtime friend and companion, Wheezie, a Persian cat who gave me her unconditional devotion and who was a great comfort to me through good times and bad. She would wait at the top of the stairs to greet me and would let me know with a loud meow if I was out too long. She needed me as much as I needed her. She will be sorely missed. She truly was the Light Within.

Down the hill behind the old cemetery in Bridgewater, this quiet pond on a land preserve offers a peaceful walk to residents and a moment to ponder.

I can imagine that all manner of beasts might live within the hollow.

Don’t Fence Me In

Photo copyright 2017 by Marc Isolda

A fellow photographer saw the fence line before I did and I stayed in the car. Still I had to get in my two cents worth — a sort of homage to Andrew Wyeth. The flow of white in the breeze seemed to emulate the clouds above the field. (You can see Susan’s photo at her blog at )
