What a gift to be able to walk in the woods here in Weston, MA! Most everyday I’m out with my dog, Ellie, walking the trails and paths through the woods, fields, and orchards. I’ve seen the same scenery for three or four years now in each of New England’s seasons – winter, spring, summer and autumn – and taken photographs this past year documenting the views.
Most days I’m out walking in the College Conservation and Jericho Town Forest areas on the north side of town. In summer we often wander over the Cat Rock area so Ellie can swim in Hobbs Brook Pond since College Pond becomes overrun with lily pads. Weston residents (including animal, mineral and vegetable varieties) are fortunate to have inherited a generous amount of open and preserved land.
Here are a few of the photographs taking some of the same scenery in the different seasons and arranging them side-by-side. Enjoy!
