The Dead Of Winter

The Dead Of Winter, b/w

I had an opportunity for a late afternoon hike in the Hilton area of Patapsco State Park on superbowl Sunday. The area was devoid of people and dry as a bone. We haven't had a decent rain or snowfall this year, and things are dry. All in all, the area was desolate: brown, dessicated leaves covered the forest floor, leaving only leafless trees and the ever-present schist and gneiss rocks and boulders as prominent landmarks. These large rocks, however, had a majesty all their own, and were extremely worthy subjects for photographs. I took multiple images, and think this one is a great example of that day and time.

I hope you enjoy my photography. Please feel free to drop me a comment.

Best wishes,
